The Mothers of Invention: Absolutely Free (Verve V6-5013)
Greg Shaw, Mojo Navigator, August 1967
THIS ALBUM is a "first" in the rock genre, being basically an opera more than anything else. The record is divided into 13 tracks, each having a separate theme, but they run together smoothly with no breaks. The liner notes describe the two sides as "#s 1 and 2 ,in a series of underground oratorios" and a complete "libretto" is offered for $1.
