That is a reference to a concert held in Italy inthe year before the release of the album, The Dangerous Kitchen - Zappa* - The Man From Utopia (CD, on 7 July at Parco Redecesio which is also referred in a street sign on the album cover in Segratenear Milan. While Zappa was playing, a huge number of mosquitoes began flying on stage and gave the band a hard time.
The back cover shows the audience as seen from the stage during the concert in Palermowhich ended in a riot. The sleeve art is also a reference to Liberatore's comic character RanXerox. The album's opening track " Cocaine Decisions ", with its groove redolent of skiffle washboards, is an attack on drug-influenced businessmen and features a harmonica. For "Jazz" and "Kitchen", Zappa had guitarist Steve Vai overdub complex guitar parts for the entire length of the songs, which perfectly copied Zappa's every word and syllable.
This unique type of overdub was a one-time experiment that Zappa never repeated. The technique that he uses in this particular song is very interesting: it's this half-sung, half-spoken performing method that's not quite like Sprechgesangbut what makes it so interesting is that he accompanies it with an instrumental solo.
I was very surprised to find out that the guitar part was recorded separately. As it seemed so synchronous, I was convinced that Zappa had sung and played at the same time. Nevertheless the technique itself, the idea of "the singing instrument" comes from "Dangerous Kitchen".
The album was originally released on vinyl in The album was issued in remixed and resequenced form with one additional track on CD in by Barking Pumpkin. The later Rykodisc edition and the Universal Music Group release are identical. Album - Billboard United States. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

We Are Not Alone 6. The Dangerous Kitchen 7. Stick Together 9. The Jazz Discharge Party Hats Moggio No extra verse on "Cocaine Decisions", but an instrumental section equal to "Cocaine decisions, cocaine decisions" in the fade played 4 times, and one extra bridge make up for the additional 57 seconds on the CD version. The CD also has a repeat of the final "The bigger the cushion" part.
What doesn't suit me is that the sound quality of the CD stinks on ice. The bass is booming without being loud. When I played it, I thought my speakers had been blown. It sounds stupid, he should have left that one alone.
The Man from Utopia was the first Zappa album that I ever owned. So, naturally, I also have some problems with the remix. Extended songs, good. Replaced and removed instruments, bad. They both have their good points and bad points. I happen to feel that the segues and track order are much better in the remixed version too. PS: "SEX" was not hit with a pitch bender. Those backing vocals were just removed from the first mix, or else re-recorded for the remix.
And I happen to prefer the remixed version Barrow and Vinnie? The remix actually has been Wackerman-ized, who the hell knows why. It's pretty obviously Wackerman. Same thing with "Dangerous Kitchen". Is my face red! I guess I never really listened to the CD version of that. It sounds to me like there is now upright bass added to it, too. I still would like to hear the original live version without overdubs.
JWB : Yes. JWB : They're only on the 92 remix. Official Ryko statement: "New master. New timing sheet. This is the remix. The BP and '95 discs are identical, seemingly. This was another late reissue dating from so this is hardly surprising. Included in this series were some entries that never had "proper" The Dangerous Kitchen - Zappa* - The Man From Utopia (CD issues, i.
We need to stress that the sound quality of these discs matches the US Ryko issueswhich they are clearly derived from. These are collectors items, not new remastered editions. Lateupdate: It appears as if the Japanese may be warming up the mini-LP ovens for a new batch based on the UMe remasters.
We'll let you know if this happens. I'm not sure how well I'm going to be able to compare this to the '95 issue As the only other copy I have of the album is the two-ferbut I'll do my best. The front cover is the one we all know and love, but printed MUCH darker, with a faint gold, boxed "Limited Edition" declaration in the lower left corner. A catalogue number!
All track titles are in capitals. There are a few other graphical quirks, but I doubt anyone wants to hear a complete rundown on the package.

From Cliff Album) Questions I think there The Dangerous Kitchen - Zappa* - The Man From Utopia (CD too little of everything here.
Apr 21, · The Man From Utopia continues the lifelong composition begun by Zappa in the 's. This album is considered important by fans and critics: "Dangerous Kitchen" for its unique guitar/voice sync. "Moggio" is a personal instrumental favorite, standing out among hundreds of Zappa peices I am able to call to mind. This album presents a mix of studio tracks and altered live recordings from Frank Zappa's hard rock period. The tone is definitely less rock-oriented than on Them or Us, only "Stick Together" and "Cocaine Decisions" qualifying as such. The most noticeable trend here is the half-spoken half-sung free-form numbers "The Radio Is Broken," "The Dangerous Kitchen," and "The Jazz Discharge Party Hats. The dangerous kitchen - The man from Utopia meets Mary Lou "The dangerous kitchen" is the one of the two live recitatives, that Steve Vai transcribed. Both used to be available at Barfko Swill. Samples are included below at "The jazz discharge party hats". It got used for letting Steve Vai double Zappa's recitative on guitar.
