Watermelon In Easter Hay is one of Frank Zappa signature guitar compositions. Though not his most complex, its haunting melodic riffs will transpose the raw emotion flowing from Frank's fingers.
This song originally appearing on “Joe’s Garage” was selected as one of three pieces of music that would be on an album released after Frank’s death named “Frank Zappa Plays The Music of Frank Zappa – A Memorial Tribute”. If you visit the final resting place of Frank, you will note the absence of a stone, marker, or tablet.
Along with “Zoot Allures” and “Black Napkins”, “Watermelon in Easter Hay” will forever serve as Frank's Signature and eternal marker. Enjoy this version of “Watermelon In Easter Hay” off of Zappa’s 1988 release “Guitar” and spend some time remembering the often misunderstood genius of Frank Zappa.

About the Curator - Marc James
It was a cold winters night in Boston when Marc James was born into this world atop the pool table at Cheers. From the moment he sang out his first word “Norm!” the world knew the prophecy had been fulfilled. After turning down a scholarship to The Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, Marc James attended broadcasting school to focus on the wonderful world of radio. With a degree in radio broadcasting proving to be about as valuable as a festering bucket of raccoon semen, Marc James took his talents and vast knowledge of useless information to the planet Radiotron to study under the Guru of Groove. Upon his return Marc James worked briefly for the Bartlet for America campaign before joining forces with mighty The Poop Culture Podcast, conveying his love of film, jambands, sports and all tings pop culture to the masses. It was then when he learned of his one true calling, bringing peace, love light and joy to the world, while we all wait for the impending zombie apocalypse.
