What a strange band! This did the psychedelic music best. I will argue that with anyone. They did it for the best reasons to. Frank Zappa is a musical genius. He left us too early and he could have provided us with so many more masterpieces. He has more than 90 albums to his name and Freak Out is probably the best!

Frank Zappa's very best band ever. It's a shame it ended like this.
