We're Only in It for the Money is the third studio album by American rock band the Mothers of Invention, released on March 4, 1968 by Verve Records. As with the band's first two efforts, it is a concept album, and satirizes left and right-wing politics, particularly the hippie subculture, as well as the Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was conceived as part of a project called No Commercial Potential, which produced three other albums: Lumpy Gravy, Cruising with Ruben & the.

Формируйте собственную коллекция коллекцию записей The Mothers Of Invention. From the beginning, Frank Zappa cultivated a role as voice of the freaks - imaginative outsiders who didn't fit comfortably into any group. Like Freak Out, We're Only in It for the Money essentially devotes its first half to satire, and its second half to presenting alternatives. Despite some specific references, the first-half suite is still wickedly funny, since its targets remain immediately recognizable. March 4th 1968. The Mothers Of Invention. Zappa Records. Note: All the music heard on this album was compsed, arranged & scientifically mutilated by Frank Zappa with the exception of a little bit of surf music. None of the sounds are generated electronically - they are all the product of electronically altering the sounds of NORMAL instruments. The orchestral segments were conducted by Sid Sharp under the supervision of the composer.

From the mocking cover art to the orchestral notes that grace the music to the loose thematic ties that link the songs, the Mothers of Invention s Were Only in It for the Money turns Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band on its head. But its not so much the Beatles masterpiece which was released nine months before the Mothers album that Frank Zappa and his band of musical pranksters ruthlessly skewer its the culture that fed and supported it. Were Only in It for the Money still managed to reach No. 30 Zappas best showing until Apostrophe became his only Top 10 album in 1974 and build a small reputation as a counterculture classic. The whole of Were Only In it for the Money is just under 40 minutes total, encompassing uptempo tracks, ballads and the aforementioned studio explorations. It goes by briskly though, stopping and starting and shifting gears constantly and unexpectedly to what might seem dizzying effect at first but quickly settles into its own groove. Frank Zappa, both with and without the Mothers of Invention, would never stop seeking new ways to express himself, until the end of his life. He recorded more than 60 albums in all, some exceedingly brilliant, others disappointing to an alarming degree. Cheese ages gracefully. We're Only In It For The Money, alas, does not, and for one simple reason. Where's the music There's a lot of savage irony, some eclectic vocals, some truly weird studio sounds and some sing-along tunes on here.
