Apostrophe (’) is the eighteenth album by Frank Zappa, released in March 1974 in both stereo and quadraphonic formats.

Apostrophe (') ‎(Cass, Album). Apostrophe (') ‎(LP, Album). Discreet, Discreet, Reprise Records, Reprise Records.

The first half of the album is full of nonsensical shaggy-dog story songs that segue into one another without seeming to finish themselves first; their dirty jokes are generally more subtle and veiled than the more notorious cuts on Over-Nite Sensation. The second half contains the instrumental title cut, featuring Jack Bruce on bass; "Uncle Remus," an update of Zappa's critique of racial discord on "Trouble Every Day"; and a return to the album's earlier silliness in "Stink-Foot. Apostrophe (') has the narrative feel of a concept album, but aside.

Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was an American multi instrumentalist musician, composer, and bandleader. His work is characterized by nonconformity, free-form improvisation, sound experiments, musical virtuosity, and satire of American culture

Could be just my copy, but the recording is a bit harsh in the high-frequency range (hissing s-sounds).Not at all like the original pressing or digital copy i have listened to.
Wiliniett
The most famous Zappa release, and quite a good one at that. Mr. Zappa's discography is intense and dense, full of things that could scare any listener trying to crack it. Start with this one, it's relatively tame and a great listen all around.
Mejora
If you can get this Vinyl at a good price you will have picked up a sonic bargain. The sound on this version is so well balanced and dynamic, you may well throw away all other copies you own, US/European or otherwise. The only question you will be left with are the other Japanese cuts this good.
Kare
My copy looks like the "original" of this one. the runouts the following with nothing scratched out:Side 1: MS2175(31690-)-WB —◁Side 2: MS2175(31691-)-WB —◁
Friert
Thought I should point out this tape is not a US version, but a Canadian 70's edition. Most likely a first "pressing"
Ƀ⁞₳⁞Ð Ƀ⁞Ǿ⁞Ɏ
Amusingly, record labels on both sides show: 'Fran Zappa' (sic)
Gajurus
The original US release came with a lyric insert
BORZOTA
Sounds fantastic, exactly what a repressing of an older release like this should be!

Zappa is God. Thusly, this is a chapter from His Holy Scriptures, and a necessary rite of passage into the all encompassing world of Zappa. The Mustached One Himself would probably detest this description. But I am merely a disciple, fervently attempting to shove my beliefs down the throats of the sheeple who are lost among the wilderness of garbage music.

jwiz89 Zappa is God. Thusly, this is a chapter from His Holy Scriptures, and a necessary rite of passage into the all encompassing world of Zappa. The Mustached One Himself would probably detest this description. But I am merely a disciple, fervently attempting to shove my beliefs down the throats of the sheeple who are lost among the wilderness of garbage music. I'm thankful that A'pos! Tro-phe (!) was too my dad's 'rite of passage' (or 'initiation' if you will) into the Zappa canon back in the early 80's. He forever remains a converted Zappaist (or 'musicianist' as FZ Himself would call it) - as you can probably tell, I've been a hardcore believer all my life because of that. There's certainly no regretting that "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" and "Nanook Rubs It" are together a permanent fixture of our quote-along routine... enthusiastically yelling at each other, in a vigorous circular motion, Nanook and the fur trapper's war cries of yellow snow blindness.Amen!
Samugor
I concur fully.
