Frank Zappa - We're Only In It For The Money / Lumpy Gravy mp3 album

We're Only in It for the Money is the third studio album by the Mothers of Invention. Released on March 4, 1968, on Verve Records, it was subsequently remixed and re-recorded by Frank Zappa and reissued by Rykodisc in 1986. As with the band's previous two albums, We're Only in It for the Money is a concept album, and satirizes left and right-wing politics, particularly the hippie subculture, as well as the Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

From the beginning, Frank Zappa cultivated a role as voice of the freaks - imaginative outsiders who didn't fit comfortably into any group. We're Only in It for the Money is the ultimate expression of that sensibility, a satirical masterpiece that simultaneously skewered the hippies and the straights as prisoners of the same narrow-minded, superficial phoniness. Zappa's barbs were vicious and perceptive, and not just humorously so: his seemingly paranoid vision of authoritarian violence against the counterculture was borne out two years later by the Kent State killings.

Frank Zappa, We � re only in It for the Money-Lumpy Gravy (Rykodisc Rcd 40024). Lumpy Gravy" is left intact. Although Zappa had done an overdubbed version of this as well. Each side of the album is one long track, not sectioned like the later release. This to me is good, because I like the full sides on my MP3 player. If you are a Zappa collector, you may want this.

But it wasn’t until their third release (actually Zappa’s fourth, as it followed his solo opus Lumpy Gravy) that the Mothers truly found their footing: We’re Only In It for the Money, released on Verve in March 1968, would become Zappa’s highest-charting album for six years (it reached even while the band remained defiantly and. resolutely anti-commercial in its scope. The whole of We’re Only In it for the Money is just under 40 minutes total, encompassing uptempo tracks, ballads and the aforementioned studio explorations. It goes by briskly though, stopping and starting and shifting gears constantly and unexpectedly to what might seem dizzying effect at first but quickly settles into its own groove. Frank Zappa, both with and without the Mothers of Invention, would never stop seeking new ways to express himself, until the end of his life.

Released March 4, 1968. We’re Only in It for the Money Tracklist. 1. Are You Hung Up? Lyrics. 2. Who Needs the Peace Corps Lyrics. 3. Concentration Moon Lyrics. This album is Frank Zappa and the Mothers' scathing critique of 60s culture (and counterculture). The album cover, as it was originally designed, was a parody of the famous Beatles concept album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. We’re Only in It for the Money Q&A. Producer Frank Zappa.

Notes

We're Only In It For The Money:
"This whole monstrosity was conceived & executed by Frank Zappa as a result of some unpleasant premonitions, August through October 1967. All premonitions continuing to come true."

New bass and drums has been overdubbed (played by Arthur Barrow and Chad Wackerman, respectively) without any acknowledgment of this in the CD booklet.

Lumpy Gravy:
Recorded in February 1967. Remixed 1984.

"All the music heard on this album was composed, arranged & scientifically mutilated by Frank Zappa (with the exception of a little bit of surf music). None of the sounds are generated electronically... they are all the product of electronically altering the sounds of NORMAL instruments."

1984 Remix
