2 stars I hate to agree with Zappa88 but what he says is true. However, for those who have heard the '66 vinyl version of Freak Out! will definitely want their hands on this edition. The common '95 re-release is actually a remix of the album's tracks and overdubs.

For the real completist of Zappa's material, I suggest the 4-CD box set of the MOFO Project/Object. Not only you get the original vinyl version on one CD, but also three discs of outtakes from the Vault, some interesting interviews by Zappa himself on creating the group and album, their '66 Fillmore West live performance, single edits, basic instrumental tracks of over half the album, and of course the unedited versions of a couple of songs, including the uninterrupted accapella "It Can't Happen Here" previously available on the "Mothermania" compilation LP.

You probably won't sit through all four CD's but it certainly is a treasure worth waiting for forty years later.
