Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes

  • Engineers: Mark Pinskie, Klaus Wiedemann.
  • Recorded live between 1979 and 1984.
  • The SPARS code is split almost evenly between ADD and DDD recordings.
  • This is the instrumental sequel to SHUT UP 'N PLAY YOUR GUITAR, featuring 30 previously unreleased tracks with the spotlight on Frank Zappa as guitar soloist.
  • Editor: Frank Zappa.
  • Photographer: Sergio Albonico.
  • Arranger: Frank Zappa.
  • Frank Zappa's 1988 release GUITAR is the follow-up to his 1986 guitar solo smorgasbord, SHUT UP N' PLAY YER GUITAR. Like it's predecessor, GUITAR is a double-disc set comprised of in-concert Zappa guitar solos (some were taken from actual songs, others are between-song improvisation). All of the solos have been seamlessly edited together, so the entire set plays like one long piece. The solos were taken from tours ranging from 1979 through 1984, a much broader selection than SHUT UP N' PLAY YER GUITAR, which only contained material from 1979-1980.
  • "In-A-Gadda-Stravinsky" is a combination of the bass line from Iron Butterfly's late '60s l classic "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," and Zappa's Stravinsky-like guitar melodies. Another composer (George Gershwin) gets the Zappa guitar treatment via "It Ain't Necessarily the Saint James Infirmary," which includes snippets of the Gershwin classic "It Ain't Necessarily So." Also included is "For Duane," which is a bluesy solo taken from Zappa's cover of the Allman Brothers' "Whipping Post" (Zappa's full rendition of the track can be found on 1983'S THEM OR US). Other great solos include "Watermelon In Easter Hay" and "Sexual Harassment In the Workplace," among many others.
