All Analog Production from the Original 1969 Master Tape by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering; Pressed on Audiophile 180g Vinyl LP by Pallas
The lionized Mothermania - The Best Of The Mothers compilation album was originally released in March 1969, created by Frank Zappa in a resolution agreement with MGM Verve over censorship and their endless unauthorized and unappreciated by the artist compilations from the original albums then in release by Verve. Although the songs on the album were released previously on Freak Out, Absolutely Free, and We're Only In It For The Money, it contains unique mixes/edits done specifically for this collection by Zappa himself, including an uncensored version of "Mother People" (previously censored on WOIIFTM,) as well as a completely different mix of "The Idiot Bastard Son."
