SKU 28-ZPRC38351.1
"Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing with laser etching. The Zappa Family Trust marks the 50th Anniversary of Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention's 1967 album Absolutely Free with an expanded vinyl-exclusive edition.
This double 180 gram LP version includes the original record mastered by Bernie Grundman and cut directly from the original analog master tapes, plus a laser-etched additional disc including 20 minutes of bonus material from the vault. The package features FZ's original layout and libretto.
Absolutely Free turns 50!! Absolutely Free is the second studio album by the Mothers of Invention. Absolutely Free is a display of complex musical composition with political and social satire.
This album's emphasis is on interconnected movements, as each side of the original vinyl LP comprises a mini-suite. It also features one of the most famous songs of Zappa's early career, "Brown Shoes Don't Make It", a track which has been described as a "condensed two-hour musical"."

The Mothers' 2nd album, recorded in 1966, and unbelievably assured and nervy. Includes the two "underground oratorios" as well as both sides of their contemporary 'smash flop single' "Big Leg Emma" and "Why Don't You Do Me Right", as well as FZ's 1969 remixes of 3 songs. 'The beginnings of 'progressive rock' are contained within, Grasshopper...' (And I don't remember my lp copy bought when I was 15 having Frank's name stuck on the spine before the Mother's name, but for simplicity and filing sake, I'll do it too)
