Image of Frank Zappa


Composer, guitarist, singer, and bandleader Frank Zappa was a singular musical figure during a performing and recording career that lasted from the 1960s to the '90s. His disparate influences included doo wop music and avant-garde classical music; although he led groups that could be called rock & roll bands for much of his career, he used them to create a hybrid style that bordered on ...

Originally issued on a Reprise LP in 1970 this is without any doubt one of the most rewarding records ever released by Frank Zappa's Mothers Of Invention - from sound quality to musical content this is a superb album.

The disc opens and closes with two lovely vocal harmony styled songs (WPLJ & Valarie).

In between (the Burnt Weeny Sandwich?) we are served up an astonishing variety of musical genres, some recorded live in concert, some in the studio. Check the well titled tracks for an indicator of what's on offer here.

The title track "Theme From Burnt Weeny Sandwich" features some gorgeous guitar playing from Frank Zappa and is worth the price of admission alone. Although there is stunning musicianship throughout, it's extra refreshing to hear Sugar Cane Harris (Violin) on the 21 minute plus "The Litte House I Used To Live In".

This CD was issued on ZAPPA records in 2012 and was mastered by Bob Ludwig from the original 1969 analogue master tapes. This process has resulted in a CD that sounds as close to the original vinyl as you could possibly hope for and purchase is thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Album that Keeps on Giving 25 Jan 2013
Format:MP3 Download
Anyone that hasn't heard this album, let me bring it to your attention. It has been near the top of my playlist since I bought it. And I mean the whole thing, not just one or two tracks. There is not a single dud on there.

It's all good: the way the Zappa guitar solo fades in on "Theme from Burnt Weeny Sandwich", the homage to Stravinsky's Ebony Concerto in "Igor's Boogie", the symphonic arrangement of the multicoloured "Holiday in Berlin", the delicate ending to "Aybe Sea" leading in the rip-roaring "The Little House I Used to Live In" with an end that couldn't be more different. (This same track features the brilliant electric fiddle of one Don Sugarcane Harris whose blues contribution on the "Weasels Ripped My Flesh" album is also required listening.)

Make no mistake, this is not a well-harmonised concept album but a collection of the most varied, inventive and clever popular music ideas you could ever wish to hear and in the 2012 remix it has never sounded better. So my advice is to buy "Burnt Weeny Sandwich" immediately then play it and nothing else for a week. It should then give you very great pleasure for the rest of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars AT LAST! 15 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The 2012 reissue of this album sounds just the way it should, transferred from the original master. Without the digital reverb added by Zappa for the previous CD releases, this album sounds better than ever, clear and warm.
Tha artwork is almost exactly the same to that of the Ryko release, except for the back cover, which prevously featured a picture of Zappa and now features the original back cover with Ian Underwood.
Really great sound, great remastering job.
