The Mothers of Invention - 1966 - Freak Out!

Freak Out!, um disco que sempre quis ouvir, mas difícil de achar. No Brasil, só importado. Consegui comprar há alguns anos este que o All Music classifica como "uma das mais ambiciosas estréias da história do rock". Zappa é uma figura mítica, ainda mais quando incorpora uma das mães da invenção. Álbum conceitual, profundamente psicodélico, cheio de referências ao rock, ao punk e às artes. Foi lançado como um LP duplo, para destruir todas convenções vanguardistas da época. Desde a abertura, com Hungry Freaks, Daddy, Freak Out! faz uma verdadeira sátira às bandas de pop rock adolescentes. São performances cruas mas, ao mesmo tempo, incrivelmente melódicas. Basta ouvir a longa suíte (são mais de 12 minutos) The return of the son of monster magnet. Claro, há muitos efeitos de estúdio, mas nada que ofusque a genialidade de Zappa. Tanto que alguns anos depois ele depois zarpou para uma carreira-solo e foi muito bem-sucedido em seu trabalho conceitual e extremamente sofisticado. Para poucos ouvidos mesmo.

  3. o zappa conseguiu criar uma psicodelia que ao mesmo tempo em que da uma de monty phyton, é sério em relação a critica que faz, dentro de um amalgama sonoro excentrico em timbres e climas... e, como poucos conseguem, ele pode criar ainda albuns tão diferentes e tão interessantes quanto esta estréia.

  4. me encanta tu blog!
    gracias por la musica!!!


  5. So you still haven't downloaded this album... it's the first record I ever bought with my own money. Dad was a USNavel Pilot, and we were stationed at Point Magu Navel Airstation (Califonia, USA)and I saw this totally BIZZAR album in the PX (on-base retail store). I went over ever day for over a week trying to decide wheter to get Beatles 65 or Freakout. I played in a band, and we were doing Beatle songs (Dale Gray, our guitarist, wanted me to get the Beatles, but that Zappa album cover just looked so cool!!!) I had no idea who The Mother's were even though we only lived about 60 miles north west of L.A. (up the coast). I broke down and bought it and was totally FREAKED-BEWILDERED-& very PLEASED! I still own my origianl copy I bought in 1966. Back at Channel Islands High School I learned that two of my best friends, (Angela & Gloria Grimms)mother was a photographer and had shot Zappa at his home for a layout that ran in some west coast mag, the girls got spend the day at Frank's home while mom shot the pictures. When FREAKOUT was released on CD I bought my copy and I am still in love and listen to that album to this day. THANK YOU FOR SHARRING THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM WITH EVERYONE.

  6. Gregg, thanks for your visit. This is a wonderful album really. Keep in touch, Minie

    'trouble every day' can be considered one of the first and best Rap songs ever - At camp during the summers of 67 & 68 announcements for Suzy Creamcheese came over the loudspeaker system- what a time- I got to see the Mothers the night the Live at the Fillmore album was recorded in June 71- hilarious show with Flo and Eddie formerly of the Turtles- John Lennon and Yoko came on at the end - they dedicated a song called Scumbag to Bill Graham who was closing the Fillmore
