Joe's Garage was originally released in 1979 in two separate parts; Act I came first, followed by a two-record set containing Acts II & III. Joe's Garage is generally regarded as one of Zappa's finest post-'60s conceptual works, a sprawling, satirical rock opera about a totalitarian future in which music is outlawed to control the population. The narrative is long, winding, and occasionally loses focus; it was improvised in a weekend, some of it around previously existing songs, but Zappa manages to make most of it hang together.

Joe's Garage, Act I is a music studio album recording by FRANK ZAPPA (essive Rock) released in 1979 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. It's not that "Joe's Garage Act I" hits any higher highs than "Sheik Yerbouti" or Ship Arriving Too Late, it just hits them more consistently.

Альбом - Joe's Garage. Joe's Garage – рок-опера американского музыканта и композитора Фрэнка Заппы, выпущенная в виде двух отдельных альбомов на лейбле Zappa Records в 1979 году. Переработанная версия альбомов была в 1987 году выпущена в виде бокс-сета из трёх альбомов: Joe's Garage, Acts I, Act II и Act III. Сюжет оперы повествует о юном музыканте, который создаёт рок-группу, отдаёт все деньги религиозной секте, совершает акты совокупления с бытовыми электроприборами и попадает в тюрьму.
