Frank Zappa - Uncle Meat Demo [1968]



Não encontrei muita informação sobre esse disco, aparentemente foi lançado como bootleg e também era conhecido como Acetate. São demos ou outtakes do álbum Uncle Meat (1969), eu desconfio que as músicas foram tiradas do VHS lançado em 1987 (na verdade era para ser lançado em 68/69, no entanto levou 19 anos para sair), mas não estou bem certo se as músicas vieram daí. Quando peguei este arquivo não tinha capa, procurei em várias fontes, mas achava sempre os mesmos dados e necas de capa! Então resolvi improvisar uma. Quem souber alguma coisa a mais sobre esse disco, agradeço se me contar. No texto em inglês estão as informações que eu descobri.

The Mothers Of Invention at the time of this recording were:

Ray Collins - swell vocals
Jimmy Carl Black - drums, droll humor, poverty
Roy Estrada electric - bass, chesseburgers, Pachuco falsetto
Don (Dom De Wild) Preston - electric piano, tarot cards, brown rice
Billy (The Oozer) Mundi - drums on some pieces before he quit to join RHINOCEROS
Bunk (Sweetpants) Gardner - piccolo, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, soprano sax, alto sax, tenor sax, bassoon (all of these electric and/or non-electric depending)
Ian Underwood - electric organ, piano, harpsichord, celeste, flute, clarinet, alto sax, baritone sax, special assistance, copyist, industrial relations & teen appeal
Artie (With the Green Mustache) Tripp - drums, timpani, vibes, marimba, xylophone, wood blocks, bells, small chimes, cheerful outlook & specific enquiries
Euclid James (Motorhead/Motorishi) Sherwood - pop star, frenetic tenor sax stylings, tambourine, choreography, obstinance & equipment setter-upper when he's not hustling local groupies

Special thanks to: Ruth Komanoff who plays marimba and vibes with Artie on many of the tracks, and Nelcy Walker the soprano voice with Ray & Roy on Dog Breath & The Uncle Meat Variations
