Lost in all the hoopla with the impending 50th anniversary of Sgt Peppers - we here have our own 50th anniversary to celebrate. I agree with most that BWS is FZ's most under-rated album - Absolutely Free must come in a close second. A great concept album - beating SPLHCB by a few days - we have what becomes the nearly classic Mothers lineup (ok it is never without changes) - one of the very first FZ guitar solos in Call ANy Vegetable. THe classic Brown Shoes Don't Make It. Guess there are not many out takes as not even a partially extended (save for Big Leg Emma and Why Don't You Do Me Right) has been released. Did Ray Collins once say this was his favorite MOI lp.

So this weekend instead of breaking out that other lp that is hitting 50 - give this one a spin. Your ears will thank you.

From official Frank Zappa twitter: "On June 2, a special vinyl exclusive edition of “Absolutely Free” will be available for pre-order. Happy 50th Anniversary!"

And facebook: "“Absolutely Free" released 50 years ago on this day in 1967. To celebrate we have a new t-shirt available now AND one week from today on June 2, we will continue the celebration when a special vinyl exclusive edition of “Absolutely Free” will be available for pre-order. Happy 50th Anniversary!"

The Globalia site lists is as being released in June 26, while wikipedia lists it as being today. I have notice this discrepancies before. Any thoughts?

A heck of a record, anyway!

Umm....we're not talking about Sgt. Pepper.....

It must be exhausting for you to be so bitter and angry all the time.

The best of the "pop" albums the original Mothers made.

Oh sorry, Douchebag.

I guess I might have been clearer had I mentioned the tone of your sub-moronic 1-word assessment of Sgt. Pepper certainly matches most of your posts.

one of the 1st, 3rd or 4th I ever heard and the one that made me say: Holy Shit! This is the music I have been waiting for all my life (at 13).

CONVERTED!
