Frank ZappaWatermelon In Easter Hay
Release Type: User Audio Type: Single-track Reductions: Yes (Auto/CAT) Pitched Vocals: (no vocals)
The instrumental “Easter Hay” was debuted in 1978 and soon after not only became a fan-favorite but a favorite of Frank’s as well. When Frank was asked whether or not he felt he had written or recorded anything that was unique or special to him he replied yes mentioning the names of 3 guitar instrumentals; ‘Black Napkins,’ ‘Zoot Allures’ and ‘Watermelon In Easter Hay.’ He considered these his ‘signature pieces. Rarely could you describe a Zappa composition as beautiful but this is a true exception.
