Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Full performer name: Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention.
  • Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention: Frank Zappa (guitar, vocals); Ray Collins (vocals); Bunk Gardner (saxophone); Don Preston (keyboards, vocals); Roy Estrada (bass, vocals); Jimmy Carl Black, Billy Mundi (drums, percussion, vocals).
  • This package contains the complete libretto (clean American version), plus two additional tracks not included on the original release.
  • Lyricist: Frank Zappa.
  • Liner Note Author: Frank Zappa.
  • Photographers: Jerry Deiter; Marshal Harmon; Alice Ochs.
  • Arranger: Frank Zappa.
  • Before becoming obsessed with sex, politics and the Synclavier, Frank Zappa was a performer of great whimsy, who here, on his second album, was singing about such topics as fruits and vegetables while also displaying a developing critical attitude toward American social mores. Dense with musical references from "Louie Louie" to Holst's "The Planets," ABSOLUTELY FREE is a testament to the young Zappa's awesome musical breadth. These Mothers of Invention lack the precision of Zappa's later combos, but give a firm R&B grounding to his experimentation. ABSOLUTELY FREE includes the classic "Brown Shoes Don't Make It," a biting parody of suburban American values, along with forgotten masterpieces like "Call Any Vegetable," a tune pointing out the ease with which we can become in tune with our little green buddies.
Professional Reviews
Q (8/95, pp.150-151) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "A pair of side-long 'underground oratorios' crystallising Zappa's life themes--the corruptions of materialism, the vacuity of modern culture, the value of vegetables--and his technique, montaging ham-fisted mock opera with puerile bubblegum and a jazz-rock that writhes with exhilaration..."

Down Beat - 3 Stars - Good

Option - Recommended
