Stinkfoot by Frank Zappa

Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was a composer, electric guitarist, record producer, and film director. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa wrote rock, jazz, electronic, orchestral, and musique concrète works. He also directed feature-length films and music videos, and designed album covers. Zappa produced almost all of the more than 60 albums he released with the band Mothers of Invention and as a solo artist.

Stinkfoot is from Zappa’s eighteen album, Apostrophe(‘), released on April 22, 1974 in both stereo and quadraphonic formats. Apostrophe(‘) remains Zappa’s biggest commercial success in the US. It was certified Gold by the RIAA on April 7, 1976 and reached number 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. Note the advanced graphics (for 1970s) in the video.

      I saw him in concert on two occasions, both in the 1970s, his most creative period I think, tremendous shows.

      You’re indeed my kindred spirit, Holte. Still love “Freak Out,” a freakin’ classic…
