3 stars 'Peaches En Regalia' - Frank Zappa (Single)

As a mere sampler of the popular Zappa album 'Hot Rats,' this works about as well as it could. Taking the two most simple, accessble songs (which also happen to be my favourites on the album suprisingly enough) and putting them onto a singles disc was a good idea; it took songs that could be enjoyed by the casual listener and could ease them into what is a little bit more challenging and 'loose' album to get into.

Both of the songs show some serious talent and skill when it comes to performance, and have alot of jazz influence; much more so than on alot of his other works.

I have never been the biggest fan of Frank Zappa and his work, but 'Hot Rats' was a pretty good album, and these are my two most enjoyed, tightly composed of the album. Much of the album suffered from being too loose and improvised. Here, there is a much lighter listening load.

Good for anyone who is at least a bit into jazz, or fusion music, but as always; it's probably a better idea to get the album itself.
