Archival Release of Frank Zappa’s ‘Hot Rats’ Sequel Sessions

The recordings, cut in February and March 1970, find Zappa playing with a lineup similar to the one on Hot Rats: multi-instrumentalist Ian Underwood, violinist and vocalist “Sugarcane” Harris, Wrecking Crew bassist Max Bennett, and drummer Aynsley Dunbar. The music, which mostly is instrumental, includes Zappa originals, cover songs, and improvisational jams that the estate says lean on R&B, blues, and jazz influences.
