Bob Harris joined Frank Zappa's band in 1980 and has been featured on many FZ releases over the years. In 1986, he completed his debut album "The Great Nostalgia." Reissued for the first time, Bob has revisited the album by updating Zappa's favorite track "Ageless Love." Steve Vai remixed two of the tracks, and Bob has added a few more to complete this release.
Bob and his wife Thana gave an incredible performance of the standard "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" at the Zappanale festival in 2002, and they are also featured on another brilliant cover - It's A Beautiful Day's "White Bird."
Throughout "The Great Nostalgia," Bob Harris' soaring, emotive vocals are a big part of the unique aural tapestry. Also featured is the ballad "Magnet And Iron," "Nobody Wins In A War" and an unreleased instrumental from the original sessions, "The Blue Gazebo."
Bob Harris is currently performing with the reformed melodic rock band Axe.
