THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION Mothermania (1973 UK third issue 11-track vinyl compilation LP with no track separation on the disc - Mothermania was put together by Frank [as opposed to the record company] from early Mothers recordings and includessome otherwise unreleased versions. The single-pocket picture sleeve has a little age yellowing to the edges while the vinyl remains in EX condition. A respectable example & the only FZ assembled compilation of the original Mothers!).

Notable Differences :-

Side 1:

1. Brown Shoes Don't Make It - No differences.
2. Mother People - Alternate mono mix: Complete song from beginning to end. No sound effects edited in, the line "Shut your f**kin' mouth about the length of my hair" line is NOT censored, and the song ends after "holding you near me" - no vinyl record scratch, just a natural fade-out
3. The Duke of Prunes - No differences. But the subtitles that appear on Absolutely Free are not used on Mothermania; the title "The Duke of Prunes" covers the whole suite, with "Amnesia Vivace" and "The Duke Regains His Chops, which are included here.
4. Call Any Vegetable - The "improvised section" is edited out: it jumps right from the Holst quote at the beginning of "Invocation & Ritual Dance of the Young Pumpkin" into "Soft-Sell Conclusions", skipping the whole sax/guitar solo part. (Note that these subtitles that appear on Absolutely Free are not used on Mothermania; the title "Call Any Vegetable" covers the whole suite.)
5. The Idiot Bastard Son - Alternate mono mix: Complete song. Full blown intro not on We're Only In It for the Money (piano & timpani - very nice). No "I never wanted to ..." section edited in, no snorks, and the end fades out naturally. Also, Frank made the acoustic guitars and clarinets more relevant in this mix. (The LP is worth getting for this track alone!)

Side 2:

1. It Can't Happen Here - On Freak Out!, it is not differentiated by title, but only considered an untitled segment of "Help, I'm a Rock". This is a completely new stereo mix. The old Freak Out! stereo featured the usual strict left/middle/right division typical of 60s stereo imaging - This is a more sophisticated stereo mix. It's also an alternate edit, with straight singing all the way through, and no piano/percussion section. The end is looped - it goes "It can't happen here, can't happen here, can't happen heeere [cheesy tape echo] ..." and there is also "an extra scrap of FZ dialog ('... since you first took the shots')". At one point the word "psychedelic" is plainly heard - the word is inexplicably edited out of the Freak Out! version.
2. You're Probably Wondering Why I'm Here - Completely new stereo mix; the old Freak Out! stereo featured the usual strict left/middle/right division typical of 60s stereo imaging - This is a more sophisticated stereo mix.
3. Who Are the Brain Police? - Completely new stereo mix; the old Freak Out! stereo featured the usual strict left/middle/right division typical of 60s stereo imaging - This is a more sophisticated stereo mix.
4. Plastic People - No differences.
5. Hungry Freaks, Daddy - Completely new stereo mix; the old Freak Out! stereo featured the usual strict left/middle/right division typical of 60s stereo imaging - This is a more sophisticated stereo mix. The echo effect that was applied to the last words ("the great society") on the Freak Out! vinyl has been removed (and was also removed from the Freak Out! 1985 remix).
6. America Drinks & Goes Home - No Differences
