Discographie Frank Zappa part 5 - Crusing with Ruben & the Jets



frank zappa cruising with ruben and the jets
The Mothers of Invention : "Crusing with Ruben & the Jets"
Label : the Frank Zappa family thrust
Date d'enregistrement : 1968

Dernière tentative avouée pour passer à la radio, cet album est un hommage mi-parodique mi-révérencieux à la musique doo-wop des années 50. En fait, plusieurs personnes à l'époque pensaient que le disque avait été enregistré dans les années 50. Plutôt distrayant dans son ensemble, la seule véritable force de ce disque se situe au niveau des arrangements vocaux exceptionnels et bien évidemment de l'humour des paroles. On y retrouve des morceaux connus tels que "How could I be such a fool", "Any way the wind blows" ou encore "You didn't try to call me". Zappa écrivait sur la pochette : 'This is an album of greasy love songs and cretin simplicity...'
Note : (The Incredible Melting Man)
