the mothers of invention

wollman rink, central park, ny - august 3rd 1968



Released: 21st Jul 2014



Released: 15th Sep 2014


This superb set documents the Mothers’ appearance at the 1968 Schaefer Music Festival, sponsored by the Schaefer Brewing Company & held at the Wollman Skating Rink in New York City's Central Park.

In exchange for $4000 & what the contract described as "100% star billing", Zappa & his cohorts played two exhilarating 40-minute sets (at 8pm & 10.30pm), taking in early material, pieces that had yet to be recorded & some that never would be. It makes its long-awaited return to CD here.
