Cult legend Essra Mohawk talks about how Frank Zappa invited her to join his band at 19 after seeing her perform in NYC. She praises his biz-like ways and they had a close relationship. Frank released her debut SANDY'S ALBUM IS HERE AT LAST on his Bizarre label - hear their song "Bizarre Beginnings" @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw45qc...

All Music Guide calls Essra "one of America's rarest treasures." Her PRIMORDIAL LOVERS was christened the mother album of "grrrl power." Interestingly, its "I Have Been Here Before" inspired David Crosby's "Deja Vu" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1Ykmh... - though he has never given the then 20 year old credit.

As a hit songwriter, Essra wrote Cyndi Lauper's "Change of Heart," Tina Turner's "Stronger Than The Wind," Lisa Fischer's "So Intense" and has had songs on the Pop, Rock, Rn'B, Dance, Country, TV and Kid Video charts. Hear Essra and Bonnie Bramlett duet on their song "The Moment" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUNkWE...

It's also Essra's vocals on Schoolhouse Rock's "Interjections," "Sufferin' Till Suffrage," "Mother Necessity" and Sesame Street's "Teeny Little Super Guy."

"Making Time Stop" is fade in / fade out song; filmed in 1991 with host Frank Deford.
