Official Release #7. 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, it contains unique mixes or edits done specifically for this compilation. Mothermania is a collection of previously released tunes culled from the first three Mothers of Invention albums. So why bother? Well, it's the only early collection actually compiled by FZ. Verve released a bunch of early compilations without permission, but more importantly, this is the only place you can hear some of these mixes and edits. Many of the tunes from Freak Out! appear in different mixes, while "It Can't Happen Here" plays through without the interruptions of the Freak Out! version.
The twelve song Ready for Rock 'n' Roll disc is a repackaged collection of covers from days gone by, before Great White splintered into a pair of rival groups. "Sin City" starts that remake action, which includes a cool medley entitled "Bitches and Other Women".
Hungarian pianist-composer HAVASI’s life has revolved around the piano since the age of four, when he had his talent and perfect pitch discovered. During his studies he was extremely motivated by challenges and competitive situations. He would practice for ten hours a day to make the most of himself. He learned the trade of classical music with respect and humility, studied the lives and works of various masters, and graduated from Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Hungary. He came to recognise the huge responsibility involved in teaching, and taught in Budapest’s conservatory for years. As a performer of classical music he built up a vast repertoire, gave concerts in several towns across Europe, and won various piano contests.
