Frank Zappa - Under the Covers CD


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 such 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.
