This great looking T shirt is a must for fans of Frank Zappa featuring the art work for his 'breakout' LP in Britain Hot Rats.
The T shirt features the front cover of Hot Rats and the Photographer was Andee Cohen Nathanson.
The cover was unusual in that it was a Gatefold cover for a single album and the back cover had the same picture BUT the background looked closer despite the figure in the swimming pool looking farther away. This always caused a heated discussion amongsts we 15 year old Grammar School Youths we simply could not work it out!
The photograph is done with "Miss Christine" of the GTOs (Girls Together Outrageously) a band of girls managed by Frank Zappa. She is in an empty swimming pool.
Gail Zappa got fed up of the scantily clad GTOs and their loose morals hanging around Frank's House with studios and she kicked them out.
Rumour has it the girls were looser than the brake blocks on a penny farthing.
If you tickled them behind their ears their legs would fly open!!
All which has nothing to do with a great looking T shirt BUT it does give you a conversation stopper when someone compliments you on you amazing choice of T Shirt!

Hot Rats was the first Zappa album I ever heard, which I think can be said for many of Frank's fans, so this artwork is very dear to me. Beautifully reproduced, the lady appearing to rise, demonically, from the empty pool is a woman who used to babysit for Frank & Gail's kids (Dweezil & Moonunit). If you are in doubt about this purchase buy it anyway!

I bought this for my other half for his birthday, he absolutely loves it. Zappa t-shirts are so hard to find in the UK so I was glad when I found this. It's a great price, it fits really well and the print is just awesome. 10/10.
