And excellent rendition of one of my favorite Zappa pieces. Your rendition of "Peaches En Regalia" is wonderful.
PS: In a few weeks I'll be seeing Dweezil Zappa in concert playing his father's works. I think Dweezil will be happy to hear that his father's music is being honored.
When I was 16, I went to a club in Baltimore where Zappa was playing. I had a beautiful 16 year old girl with me who could have passed for much older. The guy at the door let her in and then asked for my ID. Without thinking, I gave him my real id and was surprised that he then said go right in. I guess he thought if I would give him an id, it wasn't worth checking.
Regardless, I got to see Zappa live.

How fun! I wish I was old enough to go to such concerts. As a salve, I used to listen to his live albums over and over again.
From reading several of your recent posts it seems that we have similar musical tastes (you're the only one I've seen mention Queen's "Fairy Feller" in this forum!).
This is an excellent rendition. I can picture Ian Underwood playing as I listen. Great job!
Please do "Son Of Mr. Green Genes" and "The Gumbo Variations" next!
Cool! I remember being in 7th or 8th grade and meeting a new guy at school who was into Zappa. This was about 1964 or '65 and the songs I remember the best are this one and "Brown Shoes Don't Make It".
The "band" sounds pretty good on this one. I like the sound of that organ. Maybe the bass and drums could come up a bit in the mix? Anyway, nice job on this. Thanks for sharing it. John
Yeah! We need more Zappa around here, Schneb.
Brings back memories, needless to say... very well
done! Wherever Frank is, I'm sure he's smiling on you.
Really great rendition. I'm more familiar with Zappa's name
than I am with his music, but, if this his style, I like it.
This really moves and is greatly entertaining.

Real nice man.
I saw Zappa at the Paramount in Seattle in the mid seventies. He had a great female percussionist touring with him at the time. I remember they were late and the crowd became impatient as they were tuning up.
In classic Zappa style he told them to please shut up so he could tune his fing guitar.
