Hot Rats cemented Frank Zappa as a musical force to be reckoned with. The album, recorded on a prototype 16-track recorder, sounds as fresh & sonically superior on this 180 gram audiophile edition as it did when first released in 1969. Blending rock and jazz stylings with top call studio musicians, it opened the door to 'Fusion Music' while putting FZ on the guitar player map. Captain Beefheart makes a special guest appearance. It truly is a 'Movie For Your Ears.'

2013 vinyl LP reissue. Musically wrought with Zappa's identifiable touch, this gatefold reissue of the 1973 classic LP gathers up 7 FZ classics that managed to bring a first gold album into his stash. Accompanied by "the Mothers," Frank jackhammered his way through boundary-pushing lyrics, funky rhythms, heavy rock guitar, implied messages of male stupidity, and as always, attacks at social consciousness and political correctness tucked in between. Never one to miss an opportunity to vent through his music, Zappa excels in "Camarillo Brillo," "I'm the Slime," "Dirty Love," "Fifty-Fifty." Zomby Woof," "Dinah-Moe Humm" and "Montana." Catch Tina Turner and the Ikettes with some uncredited backup vocals in the last cut.

Limited double 180 gram vinyl LP repressing. Originally released in 1979, Sheik Yerbouti was Zappa's first album to be released on Zappa Records and contains the FM radio hits 'Dancin' Foot' and 'Bobby Brown' amongst others. Sheik Yerbouti represented a major turning point in Zappa's career. It emphasized the comedic aspect of his lyrics more than ever before, beginning a period of increased record sales and mainstream media attention. Sheik Yerbouti remains Zappa's biggest selling album worldwide with over two million units sold to date. The title is a play on words; Zappa appears on the cover in character in Arab headdress, and the name, meant to resemble an Arabic transcription, is pronounced like the title of KC and the Sunshine Band's 1976 disco hit "Shake Your Booty".

Chunga's Revenge [LP]

Vinyl LP pressing. Chunga's Revenge is the third solo album by Frank Zappa, originally released in 1970. Zappa's first effort of the 1970s marks the first appearance of former Turtles members Flo & Eddie on a Zappa record, and signals the dawn of a controversial epoch in Zappa's history. Chunga's Revenge represents a shift from both the satirical political commentary of his 1960s work with The Mothers of Invention, and the jazz fusion of Hot Rats. The material presented on Chunga's Revenge is eclectic: side one includes a guitar jam ("Transylvania Boogie"), a bluesy amble ("Road Ladies"), a jazz interlude ("Twenty Small Cigars") and an avant garde live improvisation ("The Nancy and Mary Music") drawn from "King Kong" and other songs from a July 1970 Mothers performance. Several poppy numbers ("Tell Me You Love Me", "Would You Go All the Way?", "Rudy Wants to Buy Yez a Drink", "Sharleena") appear on the second side along with the improvisational title track.

Vinyl LP pressing. Zoot Allures is a 1976 rock album by Frank Zappa. This was Zappa's only release on the Warner Bros. Records label. Due to a lawsuit with his former manager, Herb Cohen, Frank Zappa's recording contract was temporarily reassigned from DiscReet Records to Warner Bros. The album was originally conceptualized as a double LP, but Zappa rearranged, edited, and shortened the track listing to what was eventually released as a single album. Zappa recorded the album after completing a world tour with a band including Napoleon Murphy Brock on tenor sax and vocals, Andre Lewis on keyboards, Roy Estrada on bass and Terry Bozzio on drums. However, this band appeared only on the live track "Black Napkins" with only Bozzio retained to play on the sessions, although Lewis and Estrada contributed backing vocals.

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Zappa Records/UMe release a 40th anniversary vinyl edition of Orchestral Favorites, with the original album mastered by Bernie Grundman and the newly-created anniversary art and cover. Unpromoted at the time and issued alongside several other titles without Zappa's permission or quality control, it was publicly criticized by the artist for it's lack of liner notes or credits and unapproved artwork. The new edition from Zappa Records/UMe commemorates the event at UCLA's Royce Hall where the album compositions were recorded in September 1975. Listeners will be transported back to September 1975, when Zappa scheduled the Royce Hall event in between trying out new band members and preparing for a tour. "Frank supervised everything," recalls Travers in the liner notes, "hired sound and lights, mixed the front of house sound at times, conducted the orchestra on occasion, and played guitar with them."

The Zombies

In The Beginning [Import]

$99.99

New Vinyl: $99.99 Buy

Limited five 180gm colored vinyl LP set. Hailing from the unlikely setting of St. Albans, The Zombies burst onto the UK and US pop scene in August 1964 with the smash hit "She's Not There", penned by keyboard player Rod Argent. Colin Blunstone's breathy vocals set the record apart from the band's contemporaries, and they followed it up with a second hit in "Tell Her No". Their debut album Begin Here was released on the Decca label in 1965. Despite issuing several more excellent singles, further chart success eluded the band, although Dusty Springfield covered Argent's "If It Don't Work Out" (which the band also recorded). The Zombies signed to CBS in 1967 and recorded a new album over the summer, producing the sessions at Abbey Road and Olympic Studios themselves. The result was the classic Odessey And Oracle, but by the time the album was released in April 1968, the band had split up. "Time Of The Season" went on to be a huge hit in the US in 1969, selling over a million copies. This set is book-ended by the two 'proper' albums that the band recorded, Begin Here and Odessey And Oracle. In between, Early Days and Continue Here round up the band's various A-sides, B-sides and EP tracks. The fourth LP faithfully recreates the R.I.P. album, an intended posthumous release of overdubbed outtakes that was shelved when new band Argent emerged from the ashes of The Zombies. The whole set is housed in a rigid slipcase. The inner sleeves include photos from designer Phil Smee's extensive collection, while the albums are pressed on different coloured vinyl.
