Produktbeschreibungen

Ein Best-Of Album mit Songs aus Frank Zappas erster Schaffensperiode mit den Mothers of Invention. Zappa ging für die veränderten Mixe dieser frühen Favoriten seiner ersten drei Studioalben Freak Out!, Absolutely Free und We´re Only In It For The Money noch einmal ins Studio – und war verärgert, als seine damalige Plattenfirma Verve das Album parallel mit seinem Hot Rats-Album veröffentlichte. Für den normalen Zappa-Fan, der die ersten drei Zappa-LPs schon hat, womöglich redundant, dagegen für Einsteiger ideal, ist Mothermania ein Muss für den Diehard-Fan.

Von M. Pauli VINE-PRODUKTTESTER am 22. November 2012
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Ich bin Zappa Fan seit den späten 70igern (vorher war ich einfach zu jung, um ansatzweise dies zu verstehen). Die ersten 5 Zappa-Alben war zur Zeit um die späten 70er nicht bis schwer zu bekommen. Da fand ich bei einem Freund dieses Album "Mothermania" nebendran stand noch "The worst of the Mothers". Ich gebs zu, damals hatte ich keinen Schimmer, was dies alles zu bedeuten hat und was das alles noch für mich heißen wird in meinem Leben. Ich wurde zum Zappa-Fan und bin es heute noch. Habe x-Konzerte gesehen und das ganze Material meines Heroes gekauft. Nur die Mothermania und Worst of.. nie als CD gesehen und besessen. Mothermania ist nun mal halt nur eine Best of der Anfangstage der MOI - aber sie gehört einfach dazu. Schönes Album, vor allem Songs, die textlich schon sehr kritisch sind, wurden hier verewigt. Ich bin happy, daß sie nun in der Sammlung steht. Wer Zappa erst seit den sheik Yerbouti-Tagen kennt und nie in die Vergangenheit zu Freak out gereist ist, dem empfehle ich diese Scheibe auf jeden Fall. ansonsten nur für Sammler, die jeden Schnipsel brauchen....und das weiß der FT

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Only FZ Created MGM/Verve Compilation 30. Dezember 2012
Von Robert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
When "Mothermania" was released there were already several compilation albums of The Mothers Of Invention floating around. Except for "Mothermania", none were compiled or approved by Frank Zappa. On FZ's only approved "best of The Mothers" collection, we get four unique mixes of four songs, which makes this release essential for the Zappa fan who needs EVERYTHING! "Mother People" has the verse that was censored out of "We're Only In It For The Money" (which includes the wonderful lyric: "Shut your f-----g mouth about the length of my hair". "The Idiot Bastard Son" features a short intro that was trimmed for "We're Only In It For The Money", and it also omits the mid-song dialog that ruined the flow of the song. "Call Any Vegetable", which consists of three parts and runs about 8 minutes on "Absolutely Free" is trimmed to a more digestible 4:23, by omitting most of part 2 ("Invocation & Ritual Dance Of The Young Pumpkin"). Finally, we get the alternate edit of "It Can't Happen Here", which has the piano ballet interlude removed, and adds an extra line of FZ's dialog with Suzy Creamcheese. For me, as a Zappa fanatic, "Mothermania" on CD is a long awaited, essential collection.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An impressive, idiosyncratic compilation that collectors need, too 23. November 2012
Von David Goodwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Between 1966 and 1968, the Mothers of Invention released exactly four albums for Verve Records--five, if you count "Lumpy Gravy," which was a Zappa solo record. So on first blush, "Mothermania," a 1969 release that compiles songs from the first three Mothers records--Freak Out!, Absolutely Free, and We're Only In It For the Money--seems pretty unnecessary, much like "Big Star's Biggest" or other compilations that cull from two or three albums. After all, all three of the Verve albums are well worth owning, and each would be a strong starting point for the new initiate.

And yet "Mothermania," which was compiled by Zappa himself, is anything but superfluous; it's a brilliant encapsulation of those first three albums, a definitive statement of "We are the Mothers, and this is what we sound like." For one, the track selection is pretty stellar. Starting off side one with "Brown Shoes Don't Make It" and side two with "It Can't Happen Here" is a ballsy move, but it works brilliantly; Zappa trusts that his listeners will realize that both of those tracks, uncommercial as they are, reflect an indispensable side of the band. Indeed, "Mothermania" actually de-emphasizes the commercial side of the group, eschewing the greasy love songs of Freak Out! and Ruben and the Jets both. It's not a perfect selection--"Trouble Every Day" is missed, in particular--but finding a better balance between the freakish and the accessible would be tough to do.

Were "Mothermania" simply an excellent compilation, its forty-year absence would not have been much lamented; however, Zappa also saw fit to stuff it full of exclusive goodies that were not available elsewhere and, as such, were lost to time for four decades. Both tracks from "Money" are available in radically different mixes. "The Idiot Bastard Son," which now sports a timpani introduction, is almost a completely different song, and "Mother People" finally surfaces in a completely unedited version, F-bomb intact and with no Lumpy Gravy intrusions. The Freak Out! tracks, meanwhile, are represented by alternative stereo mixes that, while not as revelatory as the "Money" songs, do present a nice variation on the standard Freak Out! takes (intriguingly, these were among the songs that Zappa altered the most when he revisited Freak Out! for CD release). The Absolutely Free songs are the standard Absolutely Free versions, albeit with the "Call Any Vegetable" suite expertly excising much of the "Invocation & Ritual Dance" section. Now that Absolutely Free has been reissued in excellent sound, the "Mothermania" selections aren't as essential as they were when this collection was first resurrected in 2009, but the version of "Plastic People" found here is missing some of the tape glitches that are on the 2012 Absolutely Free CD.

In other words, collectors will find a lot to like here.

In 2009, the Zappa Family Trust released "Mothermania" as a website-only exclusive. This 2012 CD is a physical release of the same audio. Those who bought the download don't need this, but the packaging is quite nice and it's lovely to have "Mothermania" back in print after so long.

In the end, "Mothermania" didn't satiate Verve's appetite, as the label would crank out a surprising number of Zappa/Mothers compilations, stretching well into the 1970s. Many of those compilations, which annoyed Zappa to no end, were facially more ambitious than "Mothermania," selecting also from "Ruben and the Jets" and "Lumpy Gravy" and thus providing a broader overview of the Verve era. But none was as idiosyncratic as "Mothermania," trusting the listener to make sense of and enjoy angular works like "Brown Shoes" and "It Can't Happen Here" (neither of which was featured on any of those later Verge compilations). For those new to Zappa, this is a safe place to wade in. And for those well versed, there's enough exclusive to this disc to justify a completist's purchase.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mothermania was Frank's idea of presenting his better songs from three years of work 18. Januar 2013
Von J. D. Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
The release of Mothermania on CD marks two milestones; it is yet another of the UME remasters and sounds fantastic and it represents what Frank himself saw as his most accessible and acceptable product to that point (1969).

Others who are more detail-oriented that I can elaborate on how the mixes for several of the songs on Mothermania were significantly different than those on the original LPs. What I think deserves some ink is how unusual his output was in the first three years, when compared to other music of the day. The 1960s saw the flourishing of music as expression for social viewpoint - historically songs, other than humourous ditties, only dealt with the vicissitudes of love. During the mid-sixties, songs began to deal with the larger world.

Zappa possessed a caustic wit and skewered both the uptight parents and the conformist-faux-hippie youth. Mothermania chooses some of these gems ("Brown Shoes Don't Make it", "Who Are the Brain Police?", "America Drinks & Goes Home") and presents them outside of the integrated contextual placement within his first severl LPs. They shine here on their own.

One small mention of the sound - it is glorious. The details of the nightclub sounds you can hear in the background of America Drinks & Goes Home are alone woth the investment, but all the tracks never sounded better, possibly never better in their original vinyl.

If you want a sampler of Zappa's Sixties work - I would say his freshest and most experimental period - you need this
4.0 von 5 Sternen We Are the Mother People 3. Oktober 2015
Von Captain K - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
The Mothers' first few albums were released by a label that didn't realize until too late whom it had signed and had no idea what to do with them except, apparently, some heavy-handed censorship. For this collection it was agreed that several of the Mothers' shorter "songs" would be re-released as Zappa & Co. intended them. Whether this amounts to little more than a few un-bleeped f bombs is for you to decide. Since the Mothers were among the first to release "concept albums" the notion of "greatest hits" is elusive, but at least here you have a one-disc collection of some of the best-remembered pieces. Whether this is thematically acceptable is for you to decide.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This is an early release of material from the Mothers ... 4. Oktober 2015
Von Stephen V. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This is an early release of material from the Mothers up to that date. They are not merely re-releases of previously recorded songs (greatest hits) there are variations and I never get tired of listening to Zappas stuff over and over. If you are a true fan you need to own this one too.
