Absolutely Free is the second studio album by the American rock band the Mothers of Invention, led by Frank Zappa, released in 1967. Absolutely Free is, again, a display of complex musical composition with political and social satire. The band had been augmented since Freak Out! by the addition of woodwinds player Bunk Gardner, keyboardist Don Preston, rhythm guitarist Jim Fielder and drummer Billy Mundi.
Frank Zappa's liner notes for Freak Out! name-checked an enormous breadth of musical and intellectual influences, and he seemingly attempts to cover them all on the second Mothers of Invention album, Absolutely Free. It's made possible not only by expanded instrumentation, but also Zappa's experiments with tape manipulation and abrupt.
The Mothers of Invention were an American rock band from California. Formed in 1964, their work is marked by the use of sonic experimentation, innovative album art, and elaborate live shows. Originally an R&B band called the Soul Giants, the band's first lineup included Ray Collins, David Coronado, Ray Hunt, Roy Estrada and Jimmy Carl Black. Frank Zappa was asked to take over as the guitarist following a fight between Collins and Coronado, the band's original saxophonist/leader.

The album is split into two sections, "Absolutely Free" and "The Mothers of Invention American Pageant. Part one opens with the excellent Plastic People, which lambastes aspects of American life from the President to women. It is one of the best tunes written with the Mothers.
Amnesia Vivace, The Mothers of Invention (1967 - Absolutely Free) - 08. Big Leg Emma, а также рингтоны на звонок и все новые треки.
The Mothers of Invention American Pageant" is not quite as good as "Absolutely Free", but it still has its strong points. America Drinks" starts this side of the album and it is a really shoddy spoof of an American cabaret lounge that is really a complete lack of substance, although I do enjoy the drumming by Jimmy Carl Black. Uncle Bernie's Farm" is the second song, and it is a very refreshing, short song that has no apparent subject but still sounds fresh every time you listen
