Frank Zappa Zappa: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 180g Vinyl 5LP Box Set

68-Track Zappa (Original Soundtrack) includes 12 Unreleased Recordings from the Archive Plus 26 Original Score Cues Newly Composed by John Frizzell!

With unfettered access to the Zappa Trust and all archival footage, Zappa explores the private life behind the mammoth musical career that never shied away from the political turbulence of its time. Alex Winter's assembly features appearances by Frank's widow Gail Zappa and several of Frank's musical collaborators including Mike Keneally, Ian Underwood, Steve Vai, Pamela Des Barres, Bunk Gardner, David Harrington, Scott Thunes, Ruth Underwood, Ray White and others.

The soundtrack is a perfect complement to the film available here as a 180g vinyl 5LP box set for the Zappa completist. Showcasing 68 total songs, there are 12 previously unreleased recordings from the Zappa archive along with his 1978 Saturday Night Live performance; 24 additional Zappa songs from his extensive catalog spanning four decades; songs from Zappa's labels Straight/Bizarre Records like "No Longer Umpire" by Alice Cooper and "The Captain's Fat Theresa Shoes" by The GTO's; 2 classical compositions by Edgard Varese and Igor Stravinsky; and 26 Original Score cues newly composed by John Frizzell for the documentary – all of which give the universe a sonic exploration into the musical brilliance of Frank Zappa.

Taken together, Zappa and the companion soundtrack offer a riveting, revealing, and emotional portrait of Frank Zappa, a trailblazer, iconoclast, virtuosic musician, and fearless artist who forever changed music and culture with his unconventional and uncompromising vision. From his early psychedelic rock beginnings to his avant-garde experimentation, jazz-rock explorations, symphonic suites, and satirical send-ups to his conceptual, compositional, and technological innovations, Zappa shattered the norms every step of the way, and his influence and ethos continues to reverberate as strongly today as ever.

Features:

• Deluxe 180g vinyl 5LP box set
• Original soundtrack to Alex Winter's Zappa documentary with 68 total songs
• 12 previously unreleased recordings from the Zappa archive
• 24 additional Zappa songs from his extensive catalog spanning four decades
• 26 original score cues newly composed by John Frizzell for the documentary
