Listening to the Mothers of Invention, "Absolutely Free" album (1967)

The second Zappa/Mothers album. For this one, Zappa expands the Mothers by adding keys, woodwinds, and a second drummer, played by musicians well-versed in jazz. The first side is largely absurdist nonsense about prunes and vegetables, the second is characteristic cultural satire of mid-60s mainstream America. And for the first time on a Zappa album (first time on ANYBODY'S album, as far as I can tell), the songs on either side are edited into an unbroken suite. 

(Released May 26, 1967...Beatles release an album of their own too, sez Wikipedia and Allen J. Wiener...but this very site disagrees, giving a UK release date of June 1 instead. Intrigue!)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

No intrigue, it's been discussed here before. The official release date was Thursday 1 June 1967 in the UK according to EMI, but shops started receiving their stock on the previous Friday and, so anticipated was the album, many shops didn't wait until the official release date to put it on their shelves. 1 June is the official release date, 26 May is the date many UK stores started selling it because they'd got it in their stock room.

I then plan to listen to Bye Bye Love and mentally rewrite the lyrics so that every word after "goodbye" is replaced with the word "sanity."

I've discovered that I can access my entire iTunes library from iMovie, which is making my work on my history project a lot more bearable.

Was: Boss Of Me (David Bowie)

Am: Bye Bye Love (George Harrison )

Will: Friends Of Mine (The Zombies)

Of course, I can already access my entire iTunes library from my computer... but I just can't resist when it's right in front of me a-hard-days-night-john-6

Also, iTunes on my computer seems to be stuck on shuffle for some reason, so this is actually a preferable way to listen a-hard-days-night-george-4

Continuing my chronological trawl through the Zappa/Mothers catalog...

...and we come to possibly the most renowned (certainly so among Beatlefans) album among them all, Frank's satire of hippie culture, and celebration of some real-life freaks, "...many of whom happen to be my dearest friends." Once again edited into two long suites, the songs (and bits of musique concrete) are jarringly edited together, and often linked or interrupted by bits of random dialogue and creepy whispering from recording engineer Gary Kellgren. Despite the cyncism, there are several moments of real compassion - possibly more than any other Zappa work. The melodies are wonderful, often cartoonishly catchy, sing-songy, matching the speeded-up vocals (which are entirely by the composer this time.) And the wordless, beatless finale, "The Chrome Plated Megaphone of Destiny" is an exquisitely ugly musical interpretation of Kafka's "In The Penal Colony", in which prisoners are subjected to a horrific device that carves the word for their crimes in their flesh. Fun!
