TRACKLISTING 1. Philosophy of the World 2. That Little Sports Car 3. Who Are Parents 4. My Pal Foot Foot 5. My Companion 6. I'm So Happy When You're of the World is the only studio album by the teen rock group the Shaggs, released in 1969. The Shaggs comprised sisters Helen, Betty, and Dorothy or Dot Wiggin, from Fremont, New Hampshire, USA. They were managed by their father, Austin Wiggin, Jr. and were sometimes accompanied by another sister, Rachel. They performed almost exclusively at the Fremont town hall and at a local nursing home, beginning in 1968 and ending in 1973. The Shaggs released one album, Philosophy Of The World, which must rank among the most polarizing LP's of all time. Some said it was the worst thing ever made. Frank Zappa famously was said to have dubbed it better than The Beatles. In 1968, three sisters from Fremont, New Hampshire strapped on their instruments and declared themselves The Shaggs. At that moment begun a peculiar tale that would last far beyond the groups five-year run. Dot, Betty and Helen and occasionally Rachel, the fourth sister played in the group on the insistence of their father, Austin Wiggin, who was convinced they were going to be big. Shaggs Own Thing. Jul 2020. However, Philosophy Of The World was rereleased in 1999 and reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. The Shaggs played the Bowery Ballroom that same year. The Shaggs would live on well into the 2000s, having the song Who Are Parents featured in Ken Park, and receiving a tribute album. Award winning writer John Langs even wrote a play about the Shaggs with Joy Gregory and Gunnar Madsen in 2003. Music by the Shaggs still lives on today. Dot Wiggin released a solo album in 2013 that contained Shaggs songs and originals. What do you think of The Shaggs Do their innocence and unusual rhythm patte.

The album has since gone on to inspire several other revivals, which have included tribute albums and even an Off-Broadway play about the group.

Okay, this is a genuinely enjoyable album. I totally understand what Zappa and Cobain were talking about when they said this was a great record. I think this way for three reasons.Reason number 1. It's fucking hilarious. The first time I heard this record I literally fell of the sofa I was laughing so much.Reason number 2. If you're anything like me, you like weird and unconventional music. This is about as unconventional as you can get. It is certainly not bound by the normal conventions of music. Crazy polyrhythms, nonsensical chord structures, atonal melodies. You name the musical convention, this record hasn't got it. Fascinating.Reason number 3. This was written by children, without parental guidance it seems. I can detect only the smallest hints that this was influenced by logical, life experienced adults. As such, this record is as close to being a pure, naive creative expression as I have ever encountered. Charming.All in all, everybody who says this is the worlds worst record has every reason to do so. But for the reasons stated above I really do, unironically love this LP. So there :P

Re:Reason number 3. This was written by children. How old were they? They don't look like children ?
Hi There, the copy I have is on black vinyl.
what colour is this edition? Is it black because it doesn't mention a colour?
inshreds66 what colour is this edition? Is it black because it doesn't mention a colour? This is the black vinyl re-issue. In most cases non-defined color will assumes black vinyl. Cheers.
