Zappa, Frank/The Mothers Of Invention - Uncle Meat 2 x CDs (2011 transfer of digital master)

SKU 28-ZPRCZR3839.2
This was the album that introduced me to 'funny music' and literally changed my life and is why I am at the computer writing descriptions of music to you and releasing records by other 'funny music' artists nearly 50 years later.
I distinctly remember being handed this album by a trusted friend in 10th grade with the admonition to be sure to listen to this album this evening, which I duly did without enthusiasm...until the 1st notes came out.
Immediately, it was like a door opened up to a technicolor-filled world (cue that scene in The Wizard of Oz, especially apropos considering the sped-up munchkin vocals that are all over this album), and I also distinctly remembering the feeling that this was the music I had waited my entire (15 year old) life to hear, but didn't know actually existed. I didn't go a day for at least 4 years without listening to at least one side of this double lp set.
The sophistication of the music, performances and studio techniques were an absolutely amazing accomplishment for an album that was recorded in fall 1967/winter 1968.
Now you can buy it in great sound with little reproductions of the original booklet, as well as an added 45' of the worst garbage you would ever hope to *not* have to hear, taken from the film soundtrack of the same name and which no one can possibly stand to listen to more than once.
Uncle Steve says, play all of CD 1 and then JUST the King Kong part of CD 2, which gives you the music of the original album minus the garbage, and hopefully your life will change as well.
