From Straight To Bizarre - Zappa, Beefheart, Alice Cooper and LA's Lunatic Fringe

Language English
Region: All Regions
Number of discs: 1
Studio: Sexy Intellectual
Run Time: 161 minutes
Average Customer Review: Be the first to review this item

The impulse for artists and musicians to form their own record labels are many. But often these endeavours are little more than vanity projects for which enthusiasm wanes when the first rush of releases fail to take off. The are exceptions to this rule however, especially when the boss is a bit smarter than the average guitar hero! So it was with Frank Zappa. Desperate to remove himself from his original deal with Verve Records, in 1968 he set up the Bizarre and Straight labels in league with manger Herb Cohen, and so began a string of releases which remain extraordinary in the extreme. Records by Frank himself and with his Mothers of Invention would rub shoulders in the label's racks with releases by notorious paranoid schizophrenic and part time songwriter, Wild Man Fischer, ex-groupies the all female GTOs, acapella gospel collective The Persuasions, the first clutch of Alice Cooper records, Tim Buckley's enigmatic Starsailor, live recordings by Lenny Bruce and Lord Buckley, and a range of other musical oddities generally of a quite startling quality despite their oft-eccentric content. But it would be a 1969 release by the Mother Superior's old teenage buddy Don Van Vliet - by then long re-christened Captain Beefheart - that would provide the art-statement for which the Bizarre/Straight enterprise is remembered best, and which remains to this day the pinnacle of achievement, not just at the House of Zappa & Cohen, but, for many, also within the normal confines of the genre loosely termed 'Rock & Roll'. To suggest that Trout Mask Replica - for it is this sonic marvel of which we speak - moved-the-goalposts is akin to claiming Jack the Ripper had 'an eye for the ladies'! This film revisits and reviews the astonishing music that came out on Bizarre and Straight, and reveals the background, operations and, crucially, the lives of the musicians, performers and management who made these labels the legendary reality they became.

As with the Liverpool show at the Kazimier, I travelled down from Glasgow to watch and record The Magic Band at Leeds Irish Centre. In comparison, the two recordings are completely different styles of live tape – both with their own qualities. The Liverpool show was recorded from the back of the floor area, near the soundboard and above the audience giving it a sound quality that certainly has a degree of 'distance' and space. This Leeds show, by contrast, is recorded at the front, near the right-hand PA speaker, giving this recording a much more 'immediate' sound. It's very clear audio and at times could be mistaken for a soundboard recording as the sound is so direct. A recording like this would have been impossible at the Liverpool show because there were large groups of people having drinks and conversations around the PA system so the recording would have been ruined. Understandably, Liverpool was a Saturday night show with the atmosphere to match. The Leeds audience weren't quite as wild on a Thursday night so that made for more favourable taping conditions - there's hardly any talking recorded during this show, which was a great relief as I really wanted to get a good capture of The Magic Band. Unfortunately there are a few instances of 'crackle' which have been introduced by either a dry contact or loose wire or something - but luckily these are few. Disappointingly, Moonlight on Vermont is a bit of a right-off due to several drop outs but everything else sounds very good.

The band was in great form as per usual and John 'Drumbo' French comments that he's "never felt such team work from a group, ever" and that this band has really got it together. All the guys looked really happy to be playing and enjoyed the Leeds audience - this was their third time playing Leeds since reforming in 2001! As this was the last show of the 'mini-tour' Drumbo seemed to be losing his voice a little but this was just when speaking to the audience rather than when singing - as ever, Drumbo's vocals were top notch! There's also a great extended drum intro on Abba Zaba.

It looks like this line up will probably be back in the UK in the first half of 2012 as their date at All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) was postponed until March, hopefully they'll stick a few extra dates in there too - they should really come further north this time!

Riccardo Fassi Tankio Band - Plays The Music Of Frank Zappa (1995)

La big band de Riccardo Fassi Tankio.
Aunque la mayor parte del disco está lleno de esforzados arreglos jazzísticos e increíbles sólos de saxo, este gran gran ensamble contamina su música con cierta dósis de la música clásica del siglo XX. Y esto lo encontramos en tracks como Medley e Igor's Boogie, que lo convierten en toda una propuesta fenomenal. De la misma forma, Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue conserva la rareza de los teclados y sintetizadores de la versión zappiana.

1. Uncle Meat
2. Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue
3. King Kong

5. Twenty Small Cigars
6. America Drinks and Goes Home

LeBocal - Oh No!, Just Another Frank Zappa Memorial Barbecue (2003)

LeBocal es un ensamble francés que, con sistema acústico, eléctrico y voces, rinde un homenaje soberbio al guitarrista de Baltimore, y que entre otros asuntos llama la atencion porque en los créditos de este disco se encuentra nada menos que el saxofonista Guillamue Perret de los inmensos y prometedores Electric Epic.

Frank Zappa - Apostrophe'

Jack Bruce, a principios de los 60 comenzó a moverse en la escena del nuevo blues inglés, trabajando con Alexis Korner y con Graham Bond. Después se unió a los Bluesbreakers de John Mayall. En 1966, junto a Eric Clapton y Ginger Baker, formó el grupo Cream, con éxitos como Sunshine of Your Love o I Feel Free. Tras la disolución del grupo en 1969 inició su carrera en solitario, todavía en marcha. Albumes en que aparece: Apostrophe (') bajo

Frank Zappa & Al DiMeola - Clownz on Velvet

El gran guitarrista Al Di Meola, "otro gran italiano", subió a tocar un par de temas con el grupo de Zappa el 17 de noviembre de 1981 en NYC. "Clownz On Velvet", procedente de esta actuación, iba a aparecer en un álbum de Zappa llamado Chalk Pie, que nunca llegó a editarse. El tema apareció finalmente en el álbum Thing-Fish, pero sin la pista de la guitarra de Al Di Meola.

Well, the concept of the Rochefort-en Accords festival is to invite a bunch (this time 25+) of musicians and ask them if they want to play together.
Off course, then there is no such thing as a band name, that is why I choose to anounce it as Captain Beefheart-en-Accords.

Frank Zappa - You Are What You Is Outtakes (1980)

Halloween saw the surfacing of of the Orchestral Favorites outtakes, so I thought Christmas would be a good time for the next little outtakes surprise. A small portion of this has been seeded here before in inferior sound, but most of it should be new to the majority of FZ collectors.
Some of the tracks differ a lot in content from the released versions, while some of them may only differ in mix and mastering. You Are What You Is is a rather "radically" mastered album in terms of EQ, effects and even speed, and these versions may come across as more natural sounding in comparison, just like Crush All Boxes does to some.

Lineage: Maxell XLII cassette (2nd gen)->Denon DRM-800A->Creative SB Live->SoundForge (level adjustments, speed correction, editing, tracking)->FLAC Frontend

Thanks to Flambay for additional speed advice.
Thanks to pbuzby and drdork for additional analysis of the differences to the album.

01 The Meek (snippet)
02 Dumb All Over (no effect on FZ's voice, extended guitar solo)
03 Suicide Chump (end)
04 Jumbo Go Away (no Vai)
05 If Only She Woulda (snippet)
06 Doreen (slightly shorter than YAWYI version (but longer than CAB version) with different vocal chant at the end)
07 Teenage Wind (studio chat and count-off at start)
08 Harder Than Your Husband
09 You Are What You Is (snippet) (no Vai)
10 Dumb All Over (end)
11 Heavenly Bank Account
12 Suicide Chump (end)
13 Jumbo Go Away
14 If Only She Woulda (longer edit with more of the keyboard solo, and a few bars of vamp between the guitar solo and closing verse)
15 Drafted Again (lead guitar in "shot in the foxhole" section, instead of trumpet)
16 Teenage Wind (snippet)
17 Persona Non Grata (longer edit than Sinister Footwear 3rd Mvt, w/ Vai overdub and original live backing track)
18 Easy Meat solo (snippet)
19 Teenage Wind (w/FZ, Ike and Ray vocals, no Bob Harris or Steve Vai)
20 Harder Than Your Husband (fewer layers of backing vocals)
21 You Are What You Is (different guitar at the beginning, none of that "woo woo-hoooh" between the lyrics lines)
22 Mudd Club (no effect on FZ's voice in the spoken mid-section)
23 The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing (doesn't have the syndrum overdubs between lines at the start)
24 Dumb All Over (no effect on FZ's voice)
25 If Only She Woulda (end) (doesn't have the extra spoken parts from the album version)
26 Drafted Again (w/FZ vocals, no Ahmet or Moon, long ending)
27 Fine Girl (drum machine)

Frank Zappa On A Reggae Trip (1979-88)

I made a complication of some of Frank Zappa's finest songs in reggae style.
When Zappa entered the 80's of the twentieth century he began to integrate reggae influences in his recordings and performances, explaining it as backwards played third world music. Yes, if Zappa played reggae it was still reggae.

01.Lucille Has Messed My Mind Up
02.Sy Borg
03.Mudd Club
04.Stick Together
05.He's So Gay
06.Fine Girl
07.Ring Of Fire
