Μετά την πηγή της έμπνευσής του [Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson], ο ίδιος ο Frank στο πιο “επικό” σόλο της καριέρας του. “Wilie The Pimp” από το Hot Rats. Στα φωνητικά ο Captain Beefheart.
After the source of his inspiration [Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson], Frank himself on the most “epic” solo of his career. “Willie The Pimp” from Hot Rats. Captain Beefheart on vocals.
I’m a little pimp with my hair gassed back
Pair of khaki pants with my shoes shined black
Got a little lady walk that street
Tellin’ all the boys that she can’t be beat
Twenty dollar bill, I can set you straight
Meet me on the corner boy’n don’t be late
Man in a suit with bow-tie neck
Want to buy a grunt with a third party check
Standin’ onna porch of the Lido Hotel
Floozies in the lobby love the way I sell
This is great!
It’s difficult to realize “Hot Rats” is from 1969. Thing is… it doesn’t seem to be from any time.
It is from its own time.
LOVE the chunky guitar, and Beefheart on vocals is a fun plus. Thank you!
It was so good to listen to this again. My brother had the album–which he played A LOT–and when he died, his wife gave the album to me. Needless to say, “Hot Rats” has a very special place in my heart.
