Frank Zappa ‎– Hot Rats

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
Official Release #8. For sessions & outtakes, see also Frank Zappa - The Hot Rats Sessions (2019).

This is the first Zappa album on which Dweezil has a credit. Both (he and the album) pretty much came into the world together. Also check out "The Story Of Willie The Pimp" on Zappa - Mystery Disc

For UK issues: First UK issues have the Reprise Tri-color labels (Pop Series) RSLP 6356, with the Pye distribution data eradicated by a black over-stamp [Feb 1970]. The 2nd issue has tan Reprise labels RSLP 6356 [Late 1970/71]. The 3rd issue has tan Reprise labels K 44078 [circa 1972]. The 4th has tan Reprise labels K 44078 [circa 1973], but now with a 'W' logo in radius text. (These are the 'key' changes, other variations may apply. The 'K' changes relate to Kinney acquisition but, under Law, were not applied in USA)

Many early USA (and international) vinyl releases continued to use 'legacy' artwork, irrespective of a history of Warner company changes and often continuing to bear the Reprise/WSeven Arts logo. Initial issues were on the Bizarre label (distributed by Warner/Reprise) and then phased into the (various) Reprise labels.

On the Zappa One Size Fits All back cover star map, there is a minor star titled "Hotratz" (situated above the major star "Pixies")

The uncredited cover photography was taken by Andee Nathanson. The uncredited cover model is Christine Frka.

This album is beautifully bizarre. The jam session is raw, filled with talent and skill, and perfectly displays Zappa’s brilliance. Must have for any collection. 10/10.

My copy has the exact labels shown here, but the cover matches the 1st pressing cover (no 'RSLP' or 'Stereo' included in top-right on front cover)..Can anyone confirm if some of these 2nd pressings came in 1st press covers? (As opposed to my copy simple being switched at some point)..

Fantastic reissue. Both the record and the jacket are of great quality and the sound is great. I've heard this remaster beats any originals and I can believe it. Picked this up for about 15USD and you cannot find a better deal for this kind of quality. Do not hesitate to go for this.

Why is there a different label on the Hype sticker on the Cover?
I have the EU version and this one has the same labels like shown on the Hype sticker (the ones with FZ on side A - not the ones shown on the pictures here)...?

My introduction into the world of Frank Zappa. Being a young teenager in the early 70s, I was immediately sucked in by this very different kind of rock music. A true mind opening experience that paved the way for Cream, Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane & others to fill my record rack. Frank continued to explore just about every possibility in music, and even today I still find myself amazed by his works. I began to collect Zappa earnestly in late 70s, and now have just about all vinyl of his original 53 releases. “Hot Rats” is a great musical piece that doesn’t offend, giving us a good rock record with some early jazz fusion thrown in. I’m not an aficionado & can’t remember a lot about the inner workings of Franks’ music, but I know what I like. Listen to this album today and it still sounds fresh. But than again, “Fresh Cream” still gives me a jolt when I play it. Whether he was ahead of his time or not, I really miss Frank.

I have one of these white promo copies and man does it sounds amazing!!! Like listening to it for the first time. Everything is blended and sounds like a different record. A better record. I have a barking pumpkin rerelease and this copy just blew it away. One of my favorite records. This copy blew my mind.

I purchased this so I could retire my excellent sounding 1st press.
It sounds great, I’m hearing details that I hadn’t before. The horns especially shine. Five stars.

Quiet pressing, quality audiophile packaging, and a pleasant cloudy transparent hot pink color.
I personally prefer some of the older mixes of the album to this newer mix, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy this pressing again.
