Informazioni sull'album

We’re Only in It For the Money è un album di Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention. Come i due predecessori, il disco mescola elementi di stili fra loro diversissimi, e parodia la cultura hippie e Summer of Love, oltre ad offrire una satira sulla natura superficiale della vita negli Stati Uniti.

Inizialmente pubblicato nel 1968, il disco venne ripubblicato da Rykodisc nel 1986 con nuove registrazioni per le percussioni. Le parti censurata sulla prima versione vennero inoltre riammesse.

Una curiosità sul disco è che venne inserito da Q magazine nella lista dei “Migliori Album psichedelici di tutti i tempi”.

La canzone Flower Punk è arrangiata su Hey Joe di Jimi Hendrix, che tra l’altro appare sulla copertina del disco.

Nel 1967 Zappa concepì l’idea per un disco, Our Man in Nirvana, che doveva combinare la musica della sua band The Mothers of Invention con la comicità di Lenny Bruce (che si era esibito con Zappa al The Fillmore nel 1966). Ma quando venne pubblicato Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Zappa notò l’effetto che diede ai Beatles, e pensò che la scena flower power avrebbe avuto sempre maggiore influenza sulla cultura popolare. Di conseguenza decise di produrre un album satirico che parodiasse ogni aspetto di Sgt. Pepper e della società statunitense degli anni sessanta. L’unico rimasuglio dell’idea originale che compare in We’re Only in It For The Money è la frase “Don’t come in me, in me, in me…” nella canzone Harry, You’re a Beast, e si riferisce ad una gag di Lenny Bruce riguardante l’eiaculazione.

    Strange that most voters votes for the inside cover of the LP and not the original front.

    The best send-up of American bourgeois conservatism and radical leftism.

    I know it's nitpicking, but this should really be labeled under "The Mothers of Invention" Stuff like "The Wall" and "The Final Cut" are predominantly Roger Waters works, particularly the latter. We still call them Pink Floyd albums though.

    Lovely as fuck... Love the bass's tone on the whole album. Nasal Retentive Calliope Music & The Chrome Plated Megaphone Of Destiny where so ahead of their time.

    "i really wish he focused less on sending his anti-big label messages" That is not what this album is about. It's a satire of 60s culture, specifically The Beatles and the "Flower Power" era. You might have realised this had you actually done some research into the matter, but yet again you just make yourself look like someone who has no idea what they're talking about. Maybe you should go back to telling people about how Trout Mask Replica is improvised.

    This is nothing short of a masterpiece.. A satirical masterpiece. :-) Anyway, I personally like to label all my Zappa stuff under one name(Frank Zappa), keeps the scrobbles together.

    no, this is a Mothers of Invention album Akayz. which includes Zappa. anyway, i wholeheartedly disagree with the two below posts. i really wish he focused less on sending his anti-big label messages and just wrote more melody. this album lacks any really catchy stuff, good instrumentation, or the lot. it's really just sound collaged snippets and rather under par material written by Zappa. he could do way better than this, and thankfully he did afterward before the Mothers broke up. this is definitely my least favorite in the Mothers of Invention discog. still, it has some bright moments, so its really not terrible, its just nowhere near the masterpieces he's made.
