A small but golden nugget for the Zappa fanatics out there!
*** 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.
