Studio Tan
1978 Japanese First Pressing With Obi. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Studio Tan Is One Of Four Albums Culled From The Ill-Fated 1976 Box Set Läther And Released By Warner Bros. Without Frank Zappa Having A Word To Say About The Final Product (Including The Horrible Artwork). The 21-Minute Opener, "The Adventures Of Greggery Peccary," Is The Culmination Of Zappa's Art Of Storytelling. A Complex Piece Painstakingly Assembled In The Studio Over Three Years, It Allies The Comedy Rock Of The Flo & Eddie Era With The Jazzy Feel Of The Grand Wazoo And The Twisted Prog Rock Of The 1973-1974 Band. Yet, It Is Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts, Proposing An Unmatched Musical Narrative That Makes "Billy The Mountain" The Work Of A Child And Amounts To A Stunning Synthesis Of The Man's Influences, Stylistic Range, And Studio Techniques. Side Two Features An Intentionally Stupid Pop Song, "Lemme Take You To The Beach," And Two Instrumental Pieces Written A Few Years Earlier. The Personnel Is For The Most Part The Same As On Roxy & Elsewhere. If You Like Cartoon Music And Silly Stories, It Is Worth Your Money For "The Adventures Of Greggery Peccary" Alone.” François Couture, AMG.
