1968 Outsider Masterpiece Re-mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes!

Shattering conventions – musical, social, political – was the life's work of Frank Zappa, the iconoclastic musical genius, rock legend and intellectual firebrand of the late 20th century whose work is equally revered by hardcore rockers and serious musical scholars.

1968's We're Only In It for the Money is the third studio album by Zappa And The Mothers Of Invention. As with the band's previous two outings, it's a conceptual affair which satirizes politics, particularly the hippie subculture, as well as The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper. It was conceived as part of a project called No Commercial Potential, which produced three other albums: Lumpy Gravy, Cruising with Ruben & the Jets and Uncle Meat. The 18-track outsider masterpiece encompasses rock, orchestral and experimental music with aplomb, and stands as one of Zappa's greatest achievements.

For an album recorded mid to late 1967, the sound quality is quite amazing. Mobile Fidelity re-mastered the album from the original analog master tapes, and their work is just stunning on this 24k Gold CD!

"We're Only in It for the Money is a milestone of studio mischief and a merciless satire of anything that pissed Zappa off during flower power's heyday - drippy hippies, the Establishment, whatever." - Rolling Stone, 500 Greatest Albums of All Time
