Frank Zappa – Joe’s Garage Acts 1, 2 & 3 (LP)

Title: Frank Zappa – Joe’s Garage Acts 1, 2 & 3 Format: Vinyl Record Label: Zappa Records Cat/Barcode: 824302386118

Joe’s Garage is a 1979 rock opera by Frank Zappa. Zappa self-deprecatingly described the album as a “stupid little story about how the government is going to do away with music. Originally released as two separate studio albums on Zappa Records, the project was later remastered and reissued as a triple vinyl record box set, Joe’s Garage, Acts I, II & III, in 1987. The story is told by a character identified as the “Central Scrutinizer” narrating the story of Joe, an average adolescent male, who forms a garage rock band, has unsatisfying relationships with women, gives all of his money to a government assisted and insincere religion, explores sexual activities with appliances, and is imprisoned. After being released from prison into a dystopian society in which music itself has been criminalized, he lapses into insanity.
