“Willie the Pimp” – Frank Zappa (with Captain Beefheart)

“Willie the Pimp” is one of my favorite Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart songs. From Zappa’s 1969 album “Hot Rats,” “Willie the Pimp” is a nasty, bluesy extended hard rock jam with wonderfully sleazy vocals by Beefheart. A standout track from a standout album.
