Frank Zappa Joe's Garage: Acts I, II & III (2021)

 

https://ydray.com/get/l/eb16175552079555/suDSrHGv8tQ
Joe's Garage: Acts I, II & III es una ópera rock del músico y compositor estadounidense Frank Zappa. El álbum tiene a Ike Willis como la voz de "Joe", un joven que se adentra en el mundo de la música. Zappa pone la voz a "El escrutador central", una voz mecánica que narra la historia y persigue la psique de Joe. El álbum, en un principio, se editó en dos partes, la primera de ella siendo un LP sencillo del acto primero, y la segunda un doble LP con los actos 2 y 3. Los tres actos después fueron editados de forma conjunta en una caja recopilatoria, y después en un doble CD. Los temas del álbum son mayoritariamente sobre las chicas que persiguen a los músicos (groupies), la burla a la cienciología, fetichismo, bandas de garage, y sobre todo, la censura a la que se tenía que enfrentar la música. Joe's Garage es particularmente notable por el uso de la técnica de xenocronía, que consistía en tomar solos de guitarra de álbumes anteriores y superponerlas a las nuevas canciones en el estudio de grabación. Con la excepción de "Watermelon in Easter Hay" y "Crew Slut", todos los solos del álbum se consiguieron de esta forma.

 
Joe's Garage is a three-part rock opera recorded by American musician Frank Zappa in September and November 1979. Originally released as two separate studio albums on Zappa Records, the project was later remastered and reissued as a triple album box set, Joe's Garage, Acts I, II & III, in 1987. The story is told by a character identified as the "Central Scrutinizer" narrating the story of Joe, an average adolescent male, from Canoga Park, Los Angeles, who forms a garage rock band, has unsatisfying relationships with women, gives all of his money to a government-assisted and insincere religion, explores sexual activities with appliances, and is imprisoned. After being released from prison into a dystopian society in which music itself has been criminalized, he lapses into insanity. The album encompasses a large spectrum of musical styles, while its lyrics often feature satirical or humorous commentary on American society and politics. It addresses themes of individualism, free will, censorship, the music industry and human sexuality, while criticizing government and religion, and satirizing Catholicism and Scientology. Joe's Garage is noted for its use of xenochrony, a recording technique that takes musical material (in this instance, guitar solos by Zappa from older live recordings) and overdubs them onto different, unrelated material. All solos on the album are xenochronous except for "Crew Slut" and "Watermelon in Easter Hay", a signature song that Zappa described as the best song on the album, and according to his son Dweezil, the best guitar solo his father ever played. Joe’s Garage initially received mixed to positive reviews, with critics praising its innovative and original music, but criticizing the scatological, sexual and profane nature of the lyrics. Since its original release, the album has been reappraised as one of Zappa's best works.
