A História e a Música de Frank Vincent Zappa - Some Lost Pieces - Capítulo XI

É sempre a mesma história, desde que comecei a escutar o Zappa... Tem um disco pirata novo, de um show lá na Conchinchina do Zappa. Parece que tentar ter toda a coleção do Zappa é uma missão que passa de geração a geração, porque em uma só deve ser impossível. Em Outubro, quando "finalizei' a última postagem da "A História e a Música de Frank Vincent Zappa" - The Last Act - Capítulo X, fui conversar com outros Zappamaníacos, e de cara, já me disseram..." Faltou o Hammersmith, o Carnigie Hall, etc...". Então, a saga continua, e decidimos criar o "Some Lost Pieces", para tentar chegar próximo de todos os discos do Zappa... tentei juntar os que estavam faltando, e agora sim, segue nosso último UPDATE, da discografia do Zappa.

The Boy Wonder Session Tapes are not raw studio takes and false starts, as has often been assumed by collectors; rather, they are derived from one or more post-production reels of mono mixes and incomplete mixdown takes. In 1966 there was no sense that rock 'n' roll outtakes would one day have commercial or historical value. Session tapes were commonly wiped and re-used as a cost-cutting measure. This practice was widespread in television also; perhaps the most important reason that Monty Python's Flying Circus seems to come out of nowhere historically is that the BBC systematically wiped tapes of Python's predecessors. Tom Wilson's spoken references to takes 4B, 4C, 11A, 11B, 18 and 29A show that these tapes document only a fraction of the original sessions - but this fraction is probably all that survives.  The mixes of Boy Wonder, I Love You and Orange Colored Sky found here are probably the end mixes used to master Burt Ward's one and only MGM single. As it was the very first song recorded on 9 June, the FZ-penned Boy Wonder, I Love You was likely selected as the A-side of the single before the sessions began. Orange Colored Sky may have been chosen for the B-side at least in part because it was one of the two remaining tracks for which Burt Ward had completed his lead vocals; additional vocals had been planned for other songs, but were canceled when the session budget ran out. The Boy Wonder Session Tapes circulate among collectors in many different track sequences. They are presented here in the sequence in which they were probably recorded, which is also the sequence in which they were likely archived on T.T.G. post-production reels and, hence, the order in which they were retrieved for mixing. Two tracks are often omitted from circulating versions of these tapes: an incomplete mixdown of Teenage Bill Of Rights, and what purports to be an alternate take or mix of Variant I. Close listening reveals that the Variant I 'alternate' is in fact the same take and mix as the more common version of the track — a fact disguised by the inclusion, at the take's beginning, of a snippet of the end of I Love. This snippet is easily explained: When the MGM 7" single was mastered, the tape segments containing the end mixes of Boy Wonder, I Love You and Orange Colored Sky were undoubtedly physically sliced out of the master reel — a common practice in those pre-digital days — and the remainder was spliced back together for the T.T.G. archives. This explains why the end of I Love — the last song from 9 June to be mixed — is found back-to-back with the 'alternate' take of Variant I — the second song to be mixed from 10 June, but the next song in order on the post-production reel after Orange Colored Sky was excised. The so-called 'alternate' version of Variant I is therefore identical to the more common version, and has been omitted from this upload.  Further evidence from the tapes suggests that the recording sequence given in Román Garcia Albertos's wonderful FZ chronology is slightly incorrect, as a snippet of Variant I appears at the end of the incomplete mixdown take of Teenage Bill Of Rights - indicating that Teenage Bill Of Rights was probably recorded first. Burt Ward claims in Boy Wonder: My Life In Tights that Orange Colored Sky was recorded at his first session with FZ, and that MGM then insisted on vocal lessons prior to his next recording date. Ward goes on to say that MGM's vocal coach dismissed him after two weeks of lessons at $1,000 per week. This is sheer fantasy — Orange Colored Sky was recorded on the second day, not the first, and there certainly was no two-week gap between sessions. Burt Ward's book is hugely entertaining — Spy magazine memorably lampooned it under the title I Couldn't Keep It In My Pants And I Can't Stop Talking About It — but clearly, serious researchers must look elsewhere for their facts.

+ Bonus

This tape has circulated in many different forms. Sometimes an off-air recording of the show intro and "Plastic People" are included at the start. Sometimes there is a jam from the Detroit 1968 tape at the end. Sometimes there is some stage banter before the music starts, and sometimes it cuts off early. The source for this seed is the tape originally posted by walk, with the last minute patched with the "Time Sandwich" boot. I have also included a remastered version that has been re-equalized, cleaned of dropouts and corrected to true mono. The switch to the fill source is very obvious in the raw version, but virtually undetectable in the remastered version.

From Michael Gray's book MOTHER!, page 115:
    Straight/Bizarre also put out a sampler album of its "product" at the same time as Uncle Meat and the Lenny Bruce albums were issued (April, 1969 [it seems to have actually been 1970, probably February - Ed.]). The sampler was called Zapped, was available mail-order from Warner Brothers in the States, and was a real loss-leader, selling for just one dollar. It featured tracks from albums by Frank Zappa, The Mothers of Invention, Wild Man Fischer, The GTOs, Tim Buckley, Tim Dawe, Jeff Simmons, Lord Buckley, Alice Cooper, and the redoubtable Captain Beefheart.

Greasy Love Songs is a compilation album by Frank Zappa, released in 2010. The album consists of the original vinyl mix of Cruising with Ruben & the Jets, with bonus material, including previously unreleased tracks from the original sessions, the single version of "Jelly Roll Gum Drop", and "audio documentary" material. The album is designated as a "Project/Object Audio Documentary", following MOFO and Lumpy Money. This is Official Release #87.

Hammersmith Odeon is a triple album by Frank Zappa, released posthumously in 2010 by the Zappa Family Trust on Vaulternative Records. This is Official Release #89. Frank Zappa played London's Hammersmith Odeon five times in 1978: on 24, 25, 26 & 27 January 1978 and on 28 February 1978. The 25, 26 & 27 January 1978 and 28 February 1978 concerts provided the source for the basic tracks for Zappa's 1979 album Sheik Yerbouti. The Hammersmith Odeon 3-CD set was designed to celebrate Frank Zappa's 70th birthday on 21 December 2010. Mixed in NYC by Frank Filipetti, none of the tracks have been previously released and the track listing mirrors and/or parallels the set lists of the concerts.

Uma observação: Este álbum triplo é BOM DEMAIS!!!!

Congress Shall Make No Law... is an album by Frank Zappa, released posthumously in 2010 by the Zappa Family Trust on Zappa Records. It contains a full recording of Zappa's September 19, 1985 testimony before the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, during which he criticized the Parents Music Resource Center in support of the recording industry. The album's release commemorates the 25th anniversary of the hearings.

In a press release, Gail Zappa said of the album,

"'Congress Shall Make No Law...' is released as an educational project, representing Zappa's tireless commitment to the First Amendment which he felt his duty to protect by providing (in his words) "stimulating digital audio entertainment" in the form of "material which a truly free society would neither fear nor suppress."

Congress Shall Make No Law... also includes Zappa testimony before the Maryland State Legislature the following year, as well as various quotes and interview excerpts on the subject of censorship and an alternate version of the song Reagan at Bitburg, one of the last pieces Zappa finished before his death in 1993. The first official version of the track was included on the 1994 album, Civilization Phaze III.[3] Many of the tracks are named after the Ten Commandments, each corresponding to the particular topic of Zappa's opinion. This is Official Release #88.

Roxy The Movie OST (2015)

Frank Zappa‘s long-fabled, newly assembled 1973 concert film, Roxy: The Movie, delivers the composer’s requisite goods: robust guitar solos, jazz-fusion interludes, sexual innuendo. But despite all that complexity, the set’s most perfect moment is an afterthought. After a massive triple-percussion solo, the maestro waits for his band, telling the audience they’ll overdub the track later. As the players shuffle around, an audience member asks what the next song is titled. “CHEEPNIS!” Zappa yells back, launching into that wacky monster movie tribute. Zappa’s compositions are, at turns, complex and confounding, innovative and immature – sprawling rock, jazz, doo-wop, even musique concrete. But above all, he was an entertainer – a key principle emphasized throughout Roxy: The Movie. Indeed, Zappa never cowered from a challenge, but his three-night stint from December 8 -10, 1973 at Hollywood’s Roxy Theater proved quite an obstacle. The shows were filmed using multiple cameras, but technical glitches kept the footage shelved for decades. But now, using modern technology, selections of the material have been spliced together into a seamless concert that enriches the most fertile period of Zappa’s creative insanity.

With such a dexterous backing band – keyboardist George Duke, vocalist/woodwind player Napoleon Murphy Brock, bassist Tom Fowler, trombonist Bruce Fowler, tuned percussionist goddess Ruth Underwood and drummers Chester Thompson and Ralph Humphrey – Zappa couldn’t go wrong. So he didn’t – blowing away the 500-capacity crowd with the warped funk of “Penguin in Bondage” (complete with Zappa’s hilarious footwork), the space-jazz assault of “Dog/Meat (The Dog Breath Variations/Uncle Meat,” and a wildly mechanized take on proggy alien daydream “Inca Roads.” But, as alluded before, Roxy‘s music is only half the sublime spectacle. The film trumps the beloved 1974 LP with its added visuals – like the charm of a seated, smirking Zappa, smoking a cigarette, Zappa and Underwood exchanging playful, knowing glances between percussion jabs or Brock’s unending supply of soulful smiles. On a technical level, the editors throw in the couple occasional split-screen and some barely noticeable fading – but overall, thankfully, they stay out of the way, lingering the appropriate amount on the players themselves.

“Something terrible has happened,” Zappa says at the beginning of the film, highlighting the catastrophe waiting to unfold. How right – yet oh, so wrong – he was.
