Super Hot Stamper

Frank Zappa
Hot Rats

  (Item #: zappahotra_1705_1) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A stunning sounding copy with each side rating a Double Plus (A++) or better!
  • Both sides here are excellent -- big, rich and full with a massive bottom end and lots of energy
  • A tough record to find good sound for - many originals are just plain awful and they don't come cheap
  • 4 1/2 stars on Allmusic: "Fuses the compositional sophistication of jazz with rock's down-and-dirty attitude."

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: zappahotra_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series.

One quality that the best copies always have, and the Classic reissue has none of, is Tubey Magic. The Classic is clean, and at first that seems like a neat trick since the originals tend to be a bit murky and congested. But it's clean like a CD is clean, in all the wrong ways. This is analog? You could've fooled me.

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: zappahotra_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

TWO EXCELLENT A++ SIDES! It takes us YEARS to find copies that sound like this. Bernie’s version for Classic beats a lot of copies out there, but it can’t hold a candle to this one!

I've been listening to Hot Rats since I was in high school. It's still remarkably fresh and original, even now. This is not music for the faint of heart. Audiophiles who prefer a steady diet of Patricia Barber and her like will find little of interest here. But for those of you who want to explore something completely original and a bit "out there," this should be right up your alley -- and be sure to check out Waka Jawaka too.

Classic Records Debunked

  (Item #: zappahotra_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: C

Another Classic Records LP debunked.

As for the Classic here, we have only one question: This is analog? You could’ve fooled me. And somebody’s been messing around with the sound of the drums on the new version -- a certain Mr. Frank Zappa no doubt. He really did the album a disservice.
