ARTICLE ABOUT Mothers of Invention (Frank Zappa) FROM New Musical Express, March 11, 1967

A small but golden nugget for the Zappa fanatics out there!
Read on!


*** Mothers of Invention: Freak Out (Verve, SVLP 9154).

Record review by Allen Evans

This music sounds Eastern at times. Lyrics are sung off-key, off-tune and a la Dylan, with news of what a mess America is in — including racial unrest, social-sex relations, an Elvis send-up, and a car melting. All the tracks are composed by Frank Zappa, who arranged and conducted various other musicians behind the Mothers themselves — Ray Collins (lead vocal, harmonica), Jim Black (drums), Roy Estrada (bass) and Elliot Ingber (lead and rhythm guitar). VERY different.

Titles: Hungry Freaks Daddy, I Ain’t Got No Heart, Who Are The Brain Police, Motherly Love, Wowie Zowie, You Didn’t Try To Call Me, I’m Not Satisfied, You’re Probably Wondering Why I’m Here, Trouble Comin’ Every Day, Help I’m A Rock, Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet.
