Zappa, Frank / The Mothers Of Invention - The Lumpy Money Project / Object 3 x CDs

SKU 28-ZPRCZR20008.2
Previously only available from the ZFT (tm tm tm), I am personally extremely happy to be able to offer this small treasure up. I bought it from the ZFT and paid much more than this!

"In 2008, Frank Zappa’s Masterworks “Lumpy Gravy” & “We’re Only In It For The Money” turned 40 years old. To mark the occasion, the Zappa Family Trust put together an anniversary edition of their Project/ Object Audio Documentary series entitled “LUMPY MONEY.” This extensive release contains unique and rare versions of both legendary albums as well as many nuggets from The Vault including various studio outtakes, single versions, instrumental mixes and FZ interview excerpts. FZ essentially worked on both albums during the same time period in 1967 and 1968. The original “Lumpy Gravy” sessions were produced by Nick Venet and recorded at Capitol Studios with a host of primo studio musicians, some of who eventually became the famous Wrecking Crew. After legal delays from FZ’s record company, “Lumpy Gravy” began anew. Armed with the “ Lumpy Gravy” session tapes and a razor blade, FZ sat in his New York City apartment and transformed the project into the masterwork collage we know today. “We’re Only In It For The Money” has gone down in history as one of the most essential rock albums of our time. With its scathing messages, use of parody, musique concrète & DADA-ist tendencies, there truly is nothing like it. “LUMPY MONEY” brings together these two iconic albums, featuring original configurations and mono mixes never before released digitally in pristine audio quality, as well as a jam packed booklet filled with photos, oddities and featuring liner notes from David Fricke and Gail Zappa."

This fulfills the wish of every Zappa fanatic that drooled over that 4-track tape of Lumpy Gravy that had the mostly instrumental (previously pretty-much unreleased ....handful of copies,at best)version of that album! It's here as well as a ton of out-takes and other ,otherwise unavailable sounds and treasures from the original sessions. Worth every penny!
