    Une redécouverte de cet album historique avec cette qualité de son. Je connaissais l'album avec la version CD au son lointain et daté. Une différence étonnante.

    Idée intéressante, mais dommage que les commentaires en néerlandais n'étaient pas traduits.

Videos about Classic Album Listening Session - 50 years: Frank Zappa - Freak Out!

Golden jubilee of Zappa’s debut

Introduction in Dutch by Zjakki Willems

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention released their first album in 1966: Freak Out! In many ways, it was a milestone of musical history in terms of both music and recording technique. Before Freak Out! who would ever have dared to think that doowop and rhythm & blues could seamlessly cross into classical avant-garde? Not to mention the satirical lyrics, the artwork, Suzy Creamcheese, the multiplicity or the conceptual continuity.

Before we listen to the album in its entirety, it will be introduced in Dutch by Zjakki Willems (radio maker and Zappa fan right from the start)
