Frank Zappa fans, an excellent new release is headed your way!

On September 23rd, ZAPPAtite – Frank Zappa’s Tastiest Tracks will be released on Zappa Records/UMe. The album is a collection of some of Zappa’s best known and most revered pieces. Ranging from his early psychedelic music to his experimental later years, this compilation will combine all of Zappa’s different sides into one album, giving the listener a taste of his many musical expressions.

The album is split into three “courses”–Appetizers, Entrees, and Desserts (a food theme, hence the ZAPPAtite title)–that were organized by Zappa’s son Ahmet Zappa and Frank Zappa archivist Joe Travers. In a press release, Ahmet Zappa had this to say about the album: “It’s a veritable smorgasbord of musicality for the curious and a buffet of favorites for the fans, ZAPPAtite collects a cross section of my favorite songs composed by my dad, that lean more towards the rock side of his expansive repertoire. I hope you’re hungry because this meal for your ears rocks!”

You can pre-order the album digitally or on CD here, and a vinyl release is expected at a later date. See below for the full album track list.
