Cat no. 238351
Absolutely Free is a continuation of the weird freakiness - both in sounds and concepts - introduced on Freak Out!, Plastic People and America Drinks and Goes Home continue the artist's lampooning of middle american values, while this time out, Zappa also seems obsessed with the fruits and vegetables that 'keep you regular' (The Duke of Prunes and All Any Vegetable). The music here jumps from avant-garde jazz snippets to gritty garage rock to operatic vocals in a manner that was truly innovative at the time; in fact, it often sounded like true musical insanity.
