Composer, guitarist, singer, and bandleader Frank Zappa was a singular musical figure during a performing and recording career that lasted from the 1960s to the '90s. His disparate influences included doo wop music and avant-garde classical music; although he led groups that could be called rock & roll bands for much of his career, he used them to create a hybrid style that bordered on ...

I started listening to FZ quite late in life (early 1980's)firstly with the post mothers 'you are what you is' period and then back to the mothers etc. Always meant to get Joe's Garage but never got round to it even after 40 albums later. If you are new to FZ then this is the real deal. I'm quite glad I missed it until now because it is the icing on the cake in my journey through his work. Every aspect of FZ is here so JG is a great place to start and what is even better - my wife hates it even more than the others so it must be pure FZ!

Frank Zappa's crazy, zany 'Joe's Garage' is a joyous, tale written with the greatest of imaginations, no doubt also enhanced by Ray White's superbly crazy guitar skills, and superb, voice, an album, you'll listen to over, and over again. 5 stars because it's too contagious, it will put a wicked grin right across your face for hours after it's over.

The Second Message From The Central Scrutinizer 21 Nov 2012
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Note: Because Frank Zappa originally released both of this albums as separate volumes,I am reviewing them as such. I do not actually own these specific versions of the CD's. But these are the only versions I can find that are separate. By the end of the 1970's Frank Zappa was already beginning to see first hand the effects that government censorship was having on different aspects of the art world,music included. These sorts of concerns would be paramount to him throughout his life from here on in. Expressed in the liner notes here,he'd become disgusted with the forced suffering put upon artists by such restrictions. So he got his Terry Bozio era band together for this 1979 rock opera project set up...in a way that only Frank Zappa could.

This particular volume of the set opens with two heavy funk oriented numbers in "Dong Work For Yuda" and "Keep It Greasy",both fueled by Arthur Barrow's killer slap bass work. On the slower jazzy numbers "Outside Now" and " He Used To Cut The Grass" we're now introduced to a world that has been emptied of music now made illegal,and musicians are either forced into other lines of work or (so apparently the lyrics indicate) some form of self delusion about the truth. On the buoyant,ferocious rocker "Packard Goose" Zappa is musing on how creativity is now defined in an environment where it is very much restricted.

This extends into another somewhat downbeat,extended groove instrumental with a somewhat,and appropriately defeated sounding guitar solo until it builds up into the the almost pop sounding "A Little Green Rosetta" where,even though it seems music is gone forever,the Joe character is still soldiering on with a rather rhythmic lifestyle in some form. This volume of the series,which features more extended tunes and is quite a bit more darker in tone focuses more on the lesson to be learned than the occurrences the concept is based around. In a way this album was very futurist,both for Zappa and many others,who would (and still do) find themselves in a musical world often dominated by subsidy and censorship. It was a battle Zappa would willingly fight to his dying day. And thought implicitly stated,I personally feel this set more than makes it's point.
