LATEST UPDATE 9/26 - Frank Zappa - Brown Shoes Don't Make It

GUITAR: EchoOfMystery

STANDARD KEYS: MrBurpler

 

"Brown Shoes Don't Make It" is a seven-and-a-half minute opus paced at the speed of a Loony Tunes cartoon, and is filled with enough musical quotes and references to inspire a dozen oratorios (the quotes range wildly from The Beach Boys' "Little Deuce Coupe" to Charles Ives). While "Brown Shoes Don't Make It" is a scathing indictment of how authoritarian attitudes are formed, it is also a jab at the sexual revolution of the late Sixties. The lyrics start off as a general attack on suburban American society: TV, greed and conformity are all mocked openly in the song. It then shifts in tone, dealing with a city hall official fantasizing about having sex with a thirteen-year-old girl.

LATEST UPDATE 10/10 - Frank Zappa - Hot Rats 50th Anniversary pack

hot-rats-banner.png

Hot Rats was also the first time Zappa focused his efforts in one general area, namely jazz-rock. The result is a classic of the genre. Hot Rats' genius lies in the way it fuses the compositional sophistication of jazz with rock's down-and-dirty attitude -- there's a real looseness and grit to the three lengthy jams, and a surprising, wry elegance to the three shorter, tightly arranged numbers (particularly the sumptuous "Peaches en Regalia"). 
 
Perhaps the biggest revelation isn't the straightforward presentation, or the intricately shifting instrumental voices in Zappa's arrangements -- it's his own virtuosity on the electric guitar, recorded during extended improvisational workouts for the first time here. His wonderfully scuzzy, distorted tone is an especially good fit on "Willie the Pimp," with its greasy blues riffs and guest vocalist Captain Beefheart's Howlin' Wolf theatrics. 
 
"Son of Mr. Green Genes" keeps the original melody of Mr. Green Genes over a jazzier, sunnier musical background.
 
Opening on a round double bass line, "Little Umbrellas," is a delicate medium-tempo instrumental piece. Nicely arranged with piano, clarinet, and even a recorder part.
 
"The Gumbo Variations" is a studio jam session. A basic drum beat, a wobbling bass line, a simple melodic frame, and the stage was set for the three main soloists of the day. First, Ian Underwood delivers one of the best saxophone solos he recorded for Zappa: crossing over to free jazz, he steals the spotlight for seven whole minutes. Violinist Sugar Cane Harris comes in next, followed by Zappa himself. There you have it: a straightforward rock jam featuring gifted improvisers. Of course, "The Gumbo Variations" is far from the usual material the man put out, but then Hot Rats is not your typical Zappa record. This piece is one of the reasons why so many people who usually hate the guitarist agree on the qualities of the album. 
 
The closing track is “It Must Be a Camel” is more jazz than fusion, and is noteworthy for the great performances of Bennett and Guerin on bass and drums respectively.
 
After 50 years Hot Rats still sizzles; few albums originating on the rock side of jazz-rock fusion flowed so freely between both sides of the equation, or achieved such unwavering excitement and energy.

Awesome! I previously resisted the temptation of adding Peaches En Regalia because it was missing pro keys, an essential instrument that song. Now I have no excuses :) And by the way it was the first Zappa song I ever heard.

Glad you get to play those awesome keys. They're all fun to play and some were excruciating to chart lol

LATEST UPDATE 10/17 - Iced Earth - Night of the Stormrider ALBUM UPDATE

I believe this was my first attempt at a pack and full band charting almost 5 years ago. I like to think I've improved in the interim so all instruments and vocals have been updated for this occasion. All songs except for Path I Choose and Mystical End feature Matt Barlow on vocals. Enjoy!
