Released:
Label: Zappa Records
Zappa's satire is so deeply linked to its era that a lot of his jokes about long hair, squares, hippies, "Frisco," etc., feel somewhat dated. Nevertheless, purely as a sonic document, We're Only in It for the Money is stunning: a collage of epic proportions that includes everything from faux-Broadway schmaltz to swirling musique concrete to bizarro answering messages mentioning Laurel Canyon. Just about every voice, instrument and sound is manipulated, tweaked or processed. Interestingly enough, the Mothers' early aesthetic sounds awful inspired by the great (and wildly underrated) Jan & Dean.
