Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Full performer name: Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention.
  • Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention: Frank Zappa (vocals, guitar, piano); Jimmy Carl Black (vocals, trumpet, drums); Roy Estrada (vocals, electric bass); Billy Mundi (vocals, drums); Ian Underwood (woodwinds, piano); Bunk Gardner (woodwinds); Euclid James "Motorhead" Sherwood (soprano & baritone saxophones); Suzy Creamcheese, Dick Barber.
  • Additional personnel includes: Gary Kellgren (vocals); Eric Clapton.
  • Recorded between August and October, 1967.
  • Originally released on Verve.
  • The early Zappa albums were treasured by the few and totally misunderstood by the majority. The brilliant SGT. PEPPER satire of the cover should have garnered extra sales, but no. Zappa's scathing wit homed in on modern middle-class America and West Coast hippies. The album offered 19 vignettes incorporating avant garde, doo-wop, some relatively conventional pop music and a lot of hilarious dialogue that was so hip it has never dated. Zappa made us confront the obvious, and the results were alarming. These issues are best demonstrated on "What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body," "Bow Tie Daddy," and "The Idiot Bastard Son."
Professional Reviews
Spin (01/04, p.48) - "...It predicted future Zappa endeavors, building a groove-fracturing spazz-rock tradition..."

Q (8/99) - Included in Q Magazine's "Best Psychedelic Albums of All Time."

Q (8/95, pp.150-151) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...a brilliant lampoon of flower-power so scathingly accurated he manages to prophesy the Kent State killings two years before they happened. Segues restlessly between pop, rock, doo-wop and musique concrete, all undercut by a vicious spoofing humour..."

Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.102) - "...the card-carrying classic. Zappa's scabrous disembowelling of the hippy dream pitches caustic lyrics over contemporary folk-rock and pop styles....the album works brilliantly as a whole..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.69) - "[M]ost of its songs poke fun at the commodification of pop counterculture....Despite the satire, it also works as one of the finest psych-rock albums of the period."
