This offering is a real treasure trove for Frank Zappa fans. A celebration of 50 years since the formation of the Mothers, a project which didn’t last long but marked an important period in the life of the great musician and his fans. The album, made up of 70 songs, is a selection of both studio and live recordings discovered by the Zappa estate. The recordings are finally available digitally on four discs, more than four hours of a group born out of the ashes of Mothers of Invention which broke up the previous year for financial reasons but also, as Zappa came to explain, “through a lack of effort and cooperation”. Another version of the story, pointed out by some band members, is that the break up was due to Zappa’s dictatorial tendency, a genius whose perfectionism verged on madness. For these reasons, Mothers of Invention came to an end. In the gap that followed, Zappa released a solo album, Hot Rats (1969), which was met with great success and contains one of his most successful tunes, Reaches en Regalia. Then came along the Mothers made up of six musicians: English drummer Aynsley Dunbar (not to be confused with the Jamaican brothers), jazz keyboardist George Duke, Ian Underwood on guitar, Jeff Simmons on bass and some ex-members of the Turtles: singers Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, aka “The Phlorescent Leech and Eddie” or “Flo & Eddie”. The Mothers can be heard on Zappa’s subsequent solo album, his third, Chunga’s Revenge (1970). Ultimately, this line-up lived a brief seven-month existence as, in January 1971, Simmons quit the group during the recording of the original soundtrack of the film 200 Motels, co-directed by Zappa himself and Tony Palmer. In that period, The Mothers then went on to record for several hours at the famous Trident Studios in London with a young, already well-known producer, Roy Thomas Baker, who would go on to produce albums for Queen, The Cars and Alice Cooper… We also find, presented here for the first time, alternative versions of Sharleena and Wonderful Wino with an incredible guitar solo from the man himself… Most importantly are the unreleased tracks such as the impressive Red Tubular Lighter, Giraffe and a never-before-heard version of Envelopes. In short, this album is a sizeable gift for all aficionados on the great Frank Zappa. © Yan Céh/Qobuz

Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.

The World According to Peter Gabriel

A figurehead of the British prog rock scene with Genesis, Peter Gabriel, who will turn 70 on February 13th, later became a champion of world music and an example of the politically engaged artist, through his label Real World, his Womad festivals and of course the protest song “Biko”, etched into the history books and made famous from the Amnesty International tour concerts. Let’s take a look back at the career of a pop star not like the others.

Diabolus in Musica: 50 Years of Black Sabbath

In the autumn of 1969, four young lads from Birmingham crammed themselves into a studio in London for what looked like their last chance at making a career in music. They had 24 hours to record and to change their lives forever. They left the studio with “Black Sabbath” an eponymous debut album from the band led by Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tommy Iommi that would turn a whole generation onto heavy metal. Let us look back on a sonic revolution.
