I too would welcome literally anything by those early Mothers, my favourite era
I will happily post up the extra info later. But this seems to be London Airport (Heathrow) I think this is FZ's first international flight. He looks happy as he knows that his name is really Frank not Francis, as his foist Passport and BC have been made/consulted. Hence he has splashed out on a BOAC bag
A paper label on the back of this photo states-
"They are shown on arrival from New York at Heathrow airport, London, today (Monday).From left to right, they are, Mothers, RAY COLLINS, JIMMY CARL BLACK, SUZIE CREAMCHEESE (the only one capable of motherhood), the group leader, FRANK ZAPPA and DON PRESTON.
The Mothers of Invention are America's first freak-out group and are here for a one-night concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Saturday when they will be augmented by members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. They have a new single disc, 'Big Leg Emma' out on Friday, and an L.P. 'Absolutely Free' scheduled for October release. Zappa writes all the lyrics - a form of caustic social comment - on the American way of life.

Thanks, love it....
I like how those early Mothers dresed too. They don't look typical of the era at all which interests me. They had style, particularly in that famous photo (probably the next day after this one) of them walking through London. I love JCB's trousers and how BG is dressed with his hair tied back. Do those particular trousers that JCB was wearing have a name?
