Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Joe's Corsage" is a full-length album release by US avant garde rock act Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention. The album was released through Vaulternative Records in May 2004. "Joe's Corsage" features archive material recorded in 1964-1965. Some or probably most of it while the band were still called The Soul Giants. The album was compiled by archivist Joe Travers. Most of the material are demo recordings of tracks that in their final form would appear on the band´s debut album "Freak Out! (1966)", but also a few tracks that would appear on "Absolutely Free (1967)" and "We're Only In It For The Money (1968)". In addition to the demos there are also a couple of live cover tracks by Righteous Brothers and Marvin Gaye. There are also a couple of interludes on the album where Frank Zappa speaks of the origins of the band and his influences, taken from interviews from the sixties.

If you are already familiar with the early material by the band and the doo woop/r´n´b style of tracks like "Anyway the Wind Blows" and "Go Cry On Somebody Else's Shoulder" you pretty much know what to expect from "Joe's Corsage". The versions on this album vary from the ones that ended up on the studio albums, but for the most part the tracks aren´t terribly different from the studio versions. A track like "I'm So Happy I Could Cry", which ended up being titled "Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance" on "We're Only In It For The Money (1968)" featuring a new set of lyrics, is one of the tracks that sound a bit different from the studio version, but otherwise I think there are little here that´ll be of interest to anyone but the most hardcore collectors. Still the recordings are of good quality with a, for the time, remarkably good sound production and of course there´s nothing wrong with the quality of the material either, so a 3 star (60%) rating is fair.

3 stars Oh, the things that are lurking in Frank Zappa's vault.

This album consists mostly of pre-"Freak Out" demos and tapes of Frank and The Mothers, plus a few live tracks from the same era. At the time, besides Frank, the band consisted of Ray Collins, Roy Estrada and Jimmy Carl Black. Also on guitar on some of the tracks is Henry Vestine, who is more famous as the guitarist for Canned Heat.

Historically important to Zappa fans, the album includes classic tracks from the first few MOI albums, with very different vocals and sometimes different arrangements. The most notable song is I'm So Happy I Could Cry, with unusually un-Zappalike upbeat lyrics over the music that we know as Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance.

The sound on these recordings is quite good. In fact it's better than a lot of major label albums from years later.

For a Zappaphile like me, 4 stars. For the normal prog fan, 3 stars.
