There have been two versions of "We're Only In It For The Money" in circulation almost since it was released - a censored version and an uncensored version. I know the censored version was in print on record as early as 1969.

Meanwhile, my copy of the Rykodisc CD is definitely the uncensored one (it has the "flower power sucks" bit from "Absolutely Free" and the bit about "I can still rmember Mama with her apron in the back / feeding all the boys in Ed's cafe" which was ridiculously cut from the origiunal censored version. Are there two different editions of the Rykodisc CD too?
I know that Zappa re-recorded some of it for the Barking Pumpkin release that he put out himself in the early 90s, but the Rykodisc one I have claims to have been remastered directly from the original tapes, (which as far as I can tell, is true, and I've also heard the vinyl).
