Prof. sez:

Here's another rarity in the series "essential in mono but not available on cd". 

It would probably be a bit of an overstatement to say that the 60's didn't truly start until this double elpee came out. 
But what a shocker this must have been back in the day. The first of its kind psychedelic pop-art sleeve. The 
perfectly executed compositions which range from conventional to completely nonsensical to everything in between and 
beyond. The razor-sharp social commentary which was probably lost on most listeners at the time. The use of humor 
as a powerful weapon. Most of all, Zappa made a point of propagandizing against the dogma's, religion, sexual 
oppression and ignorance that he felt plagued his beloved country, sadly reminding us that there just never are enough 
people quite like him around. So, let's have a look into the crazy world of the Mothers which may actually have been 
the sanest place on earth in 1966. 

Like Sgt. Peppers and Blonde on Blonde, this album comes through best in its original one-channel mix. The importance
and superiority of the monaural mixes of the latter two has finally been recognized but when it comes to Freak out!, 
we are still left with stereo only (even though an exhausting 4CD box set was released in 2006). I have been wanting to 
do this one for a couple years and have auditioned various original USA copies. The copy I ended up using was not the 
cleanest one of them all, but it had easily the cleanest audio (and it's the result that counts). Many hours of manual 
restoration went into this to bring it up to the usual standard.     

Enjoy!
