listening to we're only in it for the money on vinyl, i'm reminded how heavily censored the album originally was. curiously, the unexpurgated versions of "who needs the peace corps?" and "absolutely free" were included on an mgm compilation album i owned before ever hearing the 'riginal. fz fucked up the initial cd release (which combined money with its "part two," lumpy gravy) by re-recording the bass and drum parts. the '95 cd versh has the original tracks restored and includes _some_ of the censored lyrics, but it still sounds thin in comparison with the vinyl. so there.
