The Mothers Of Invention ‎– Rock-pile. Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention - Bacon Fat Live At The Rockpile '69 ‎(CD, Album, RM, Unofficial).

The Mothers of Invention were an American rock band from California. Formed in 1964, their work is marked by the use of sonic experimentation, innovative album art, and elaborate live shows. Originally an R&B band called the Soul Giants, the band's first lineup included Ray Collins, David Coronado, Ray Hunt, Roy Estrada and Jimmy Carl Black. Frank Zappa was asked to take over as the guitarist following a fight between Collins and Coronado, the band's original saxophonist/leader.

His 1966 debut album with the Mothers of Invention, Freak Out!, combined songs in conventional rock and roll format with collective improvisations and studio-generated sound collages. He continued this eclectic and experimental approach, irrespective of whether the fundamental format was rock, jazz or classical. Zappa's output is unified by a conceptual continuity he termed "Project/Object", with numerous musical phrases, ideas, and characters reappearing across his albums  . 2 Late 1960s: the Mothers of Invention. Debut album: Freak Out!

We're Only in It for the Money is the third studio album by the Mothers of Invention. Released on March 4, 1968, on Verve Records, it was subsequently remixed and re-recorded by Frank Zappa and reissued by Rykodisc in 1986. As with the band's previous two albums, We're Only in It for the Money 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.

The debut album by Mothers of Invention is a rather strange collection of songs. Freak Out! consist mainly of fifties rhythm and blues songs with some exceptions. The rhythm and blues songs have pretty funny lyrics. Personally I like everything on this album except for Help Iīm a Rock and The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet which is not to my liking. I know this is what makes this album prog rock, but I never liked the noisy part of Mothers of Invention, I always preferred the songs with intelligent lyrics, and there are fortunately plenty of them in Zappaīs discography. Some might say there is an overweight of the silly ones, but I think even the silly ones tells us something.

An instantly likeable jazz-rock album, warm and uplifting, it’s primarily instrumental except for a vocal cameo by Captain Beefheart. Hot Rats has a way of sounding rigidly structured and at the same time utterly free. It isn’t really jazz, though it relies heavily on solos, but it’s not quite rock because the solos are so jazzy. It’s a special record. David Cavanagh Q&A DON PRESTON (Mothers Of Invention keyboardist, 1966-69; 1971) What was it like working with Zappa? That’s like asking ‘how did it feel when your mother died right in front of you?’ Ha ha!
