Description

Among the most respected composers of the 20th Century, Frank Zappa was never away from a studio or a writing location for long. But while this extraordinary artist could compose in just about every style imaginable - from daft doo-wop pastiche to challenging modern classical he was never averse to covering the tunes of others, whether they be tunes by Igor Stravinsky and Edgar Varese or Lennon & McCartney and Holland, Dozier Holland. This collection features 23 cover versions, all recorded in concert during Frank Zappa s career, sometimes in humorous adaption, sometimes not, but always, as was Zappa and his numerous bands way, with musical perfection.
