A long long time ago, Uncle Frank & The Mothers released one of only two Verve singles in Japan. This one, with sleeve dated ‘TO 6711’ [Nov 67 Tokyo] was the first & has since become one of the rarest Frank Zappa official releases in the world.
Taken from the then-recently released ‘Freak Out’ album, this wide centred 7″ is backed by Who Are The Brain Police? A jolly civil rights themed package all round. What makes this extra special is that the title track is the 2:33 single edit, rather than the 5:53 album version. Sometimes these are found as fairly tatty copies but even then you still have to pay a small fortune for them.
This rare example is a stock copy & only the second our Japanese buyer has ever found. The thin silk laminated flipback picture sleeve is untorn, free of stickers or writing. The pink lettering really stands out unblemished & the unique design even sports a ‘psychedelic’ genre header in red. We would grade the sleeve a very pleasing VG+ with just some minor foxing on the back not spoiling the print & otherwise just the very lightest thumb crease from handling.
The vinyl has a deep sheen both sides & grades VG+/EX- with merely a few faint paper hairlines not affecting play. A lovely copy of one of the rarest FZ releases in the world! Find out more about this record in our store.
