THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION - ABSOLUTELY FREE USA V6-5013 STEREO FOC 12" LP VINYL

This album "Absolutely Free" is the second album by The Mothers of Invention, led by Frank Zappa. Absolutely Free is, again, a display of complex musical composition with political and social satire. The band had been augmented since Freak Out! by the addition of saxophone player Bunk Gardner, keyboardist Don Preston, guitarist Jim Fielder and drummer Billy Mundi. Fielder quit the group before the album was released and his name was removed from the album credits.
