Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Mothermania: The Best Of The Mothers

A curious compilation released in 1969 by Frank Zappa’s backing band The Mothers of Invention, Mothermania contained unique mixes of songs already on Freak Out!, Absolutely Free and We're Only In It For The Money. Created mainly in response to unsanctioned compilations then being released by his old record company, Zappa disowned it soon afterwards, but now it gets a 50th anniversary overhaul from the original tapes.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
Weasels Ripped My Flesh

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. Weasels Ripped My Flesh is one of his best-loved albums with The Mothers Of Invention, being a frenzied blend-up of edited live recordings that refers to all sorts of experimental music modes in typically playful Zappa style. 180g vinyl reissue.

Frank Zappa
Chunga's Revenge

A typically straight-laced affair from Frank Zappa here. First pressed in 1970, Chunga’s Revenge marks the beardy weirdy’s first album with a Mothers Of Invention lineup that included former Turtles Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman. Musically it’s … well, it’s Frank Zappa, so it’s more a case of bands sounding like him rather than the other way round. This reissue is the first vinyl release of the LP for three decades.

Frank Zappa / The Mothers Of Invention
Burnt Weeny Sandwich

Often closer to idiot than genius on the genius/idiot spectrum, Frank Zappa nonetheless had both an incredible moustache and a career which spanned all kinds of styles and mediums. This 1970 album has been lovingly restored by the Zappa family trust who are slowly re-issuing his large and sprawling back catalogue. At the time of release the album was actually a posthumous Mothers of Invention record after Zappa dissolved the band and is comprised of studio and live elements.

Francis Vincent Zappa Conducts The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Orchestra & Chorus
Lumpy Gravy

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. Lumpy Gravy is Zappa’s debut solo album from 1967, released under the name Francis Vincent Zappa and utilising the talents of The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Orchestra & Chorus (some session musicians). Big time musique concréte and contemporary composition, as translated via Zappa’s playful mind.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
We're Only In It For The Money

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. We’re Only In It For The Money is his third album with The Mothers Of Invention, and it’s got a wild blend of psych-rockin’, weirdo voice / tape experimentation, skitty bits, doo-wop and much more. Sounds pretty out there, even for 1968. 180g vinyl reissue.
