I haven't really listened to Zappa since high school. Hot Rats was my favorite. Can anyone recommend something similar to Hot Rats.<br>Thanks,<br>Bob

The original vinyl release of "Sleep Dirt" would probably fit in the mix, too... supposedly Frank wanted to name it 'Hot Rats III', originally. (Waka/Jawaka being considered HRII)<br><br>The CD release was 'vocalized', though.

Thanks for the reply's. I had Freak Out when it was first released and then We're Only In It For the Money. And then I bought Hot Rats. I got to see Frank at the Fillmore when Flo and Eddie first joined. <br>Bob

I don't know, for me, there's nothing quite like it. <br><br>That record has a very strong and strange aura.<br><br><br><br>
