ZAPPA (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

A must have for Frank Zappa fans! ‘ZAPPA (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)’ is a bumper set which features (deep breath): a dozen unreleased Zappa recordings; songs The GTO’s and Alice Cooper which were released on Zappa’s record labels Straight and Bizarre; classical compositions by Igor Stravinsky and Edgard Varese (not sure why they're on here, but whatever); and a newly composed score for the motion picture from John Frizzell.

Frank Zappa
Hot Rats (Pink Vinyl Remaster)

Frank Zappa’s 1969 weirdo virtuoso cosmic jazz rock classic Hot Rats is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Zappa really embraced the future on this one, using 16-track equipment to pursue his every weirdo whim. How many other albums have a 'Advanced recording techniques' section on their Wikipedia page?

Frank Zappa
Halloween 81

If you like Frank Zappa (and thousands do I've heard) then there are a couple of editions of his Halloween '81 live set floating about. For the really adventurous you could go for the 6CD box set which has 78 (count 'em) unreleased live tracks. For those of us with a more sensitive disposition there's a single CD 'highlights' edition. Your choice.

Essential ownership for Frank Zappa fans, The Mothers 1970 is a four-CD box set containing 70 unreleased tracks marking the 50th anniversary of that era’s line-up of Zappa’s backing band The Mothers of Invention.

Frank Zappa
Hot Rats

An early piece of the strange and wonderful Frank Zappa puzzle, recorded as a solo album by Zappa in 1969. Hot Rats is a spiralling, mostly instrumental suite of music recorded with cutting-edge 16-track studio technology that allowed for greater complexity: you can bet Zappa loved that. Reissued on vinyl by Universal.

Frank Zappa
Orchestral Favorites (40th Anniversary)

Appearing during a period of upheaval between Frank Zappa and his label Warner, Orchestral Favourites was an album of instrumentals recorded with the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra and released without his permission in 1979. Now, the often-overlooked record gets a deluxe overhaul and expansion for its 40th anniversary worthy of Zappa’s original vision.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Mothermania: The Best Of The Mothers

A curious compilation released in 1969 by Frank Zappa’s backing band The Mothers of Invention, Mothermania contained unique mixes of songs already on Freak Out!, Absolutely Free and We're Only In It For The Money. Created mainly in response to unsanctioned compilations then being released by his old record company, Zappa disowned it soon afterwards, but now it gets a 50th anniversary overhaul from the original tapes.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
Weasels Ripped My Flesh

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. Weasels Ripped My Flesh is one of his best-loved albums with The Mothers Of Invention, being a frenzied blend-up of edited live recordings that refers to all sorts of experimental music modes in typically playful Zappa style. 180g vinyl reissue.

Frank Zappa
Sheik Yerbouti

Reissues afoot of two Frank Zappa albums on Universal. Sheik Yerbouti is mostly a live album, though Zappa added in some studio wizardry to round things out. Features all the typical Zappa-isms, with lots of highly technical guitar and rhythm lines and a bit of ‘wackiness’. Double LP reissue.

Frank Zappa
Zoot Allures

Frank Zappa’s Zoot Allures (what an incredibly Frank Zappa title for an album) was released in 1976 in the midst of some legal stresses. Frank’s intense guitar stylings are at the centre of the album’s sound, which seems to have learned lessons from heavy metal and applied them to the weird world of Zappa. Reissued to vinyl by Universal.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
We're Only In It For The Money

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. We’re Only In It For The Money is his third album with The Mothers Of Invention, and it’s got a wild blend of psych-rockin’, weirdo voice / tape experimentation, skitty bits, doo-wop and much more. Sounds pretty out there, even for 1968. 180g vinyl reissue.
