Οι GTO’s [Girls Together Outrageously] ήταν το γυναικείο γκρουπ που δημιούργησε ο Frank Zappa στα late ‘60s. Η παρουσία τους στη σκηνή και στο στούντιο ήταν “εύλογα” επηρεασμένη απ’ τη δική του. Άφησαν το στίγμα τους στη σκηνή του LA. παρά το ότι κυκλοφόρησαν ένα και μόνο άλμπουμ [Permanent Damage]
Ανάμεσα στις εντυπωσιακές συμμετοχές στην ηχογράφηση του ήταν εκείνη του Jeff Beck – τον ακούμε μαζί τους σε δυο τραγούδια.

GTO’s [Girls Together Outrageously] were the female group Frank Zappa formed in the late ’60s. Their presence, on stage and in the studio was “understandably” influenced by his own one.
They left their mark on the LA scene, despite releasing a single album [Permanent Damage].
Among the impressive participations on this recording was the one of Jeff Beck – we hear two songs with him on electric guitar.

❝ I see all the people I want to see
I be all the people I want to be
And find all the treasures I want to find
Along with the images, they’re so unkind
Shock treatment, let me go-o
Shock treatment, oh let me go-o etc. etc ❞

❝ She creaked down the lane
As sane as you make her
Rake held proudly in her hand
Loudly singing her song
To you, to you, to you, to you
She puffs on her old corn pipe
Griping about dusty heat
Her feet
Swing bare in the rubbish
So high and mighty on her throne
Her bony hounds by her side
Gone with the rush of time
The Eureka Springs Garbage Lady
Shall ride no more
A-aaah, a-aaah, a-aaah, a-aaah
She’s a school teacher from Dakota
Diploma in her shack
Back with the folks at home
She’s in love with the Blacksmith Harry
Caring for his trash
Dashing by as fast
As her sway-back
hag will go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o
(Clap clap)
Will go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (clap clap)
Will go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (clap clap)
Will go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (clap clap clap)
La la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la
So high and mighty on her throne
Her bony hounds by her side
Gone with the rush of time
The Eureka Springs Garbage Lady
Shall ride no more ❞

Enjoy!
