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."

1969 compilation from Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention. Mothermania, subtitled The Best of the Mothers, is a compilation album by The Mothers of Invention. While the songs were previously released on Freak Out!, Absolutely Free and We're Only in It for the Money, the compilation contains unique mixes or edits done specifically for this compilation.
