March 24 might as well be declared Frank Zappa Day. On that date, retailers are reporting that Zappa Records and UMe will unveil CD reissues of more than twenty Zappa titles from his storied discography. These posthumous releases from the late composer-bandleader were previously available as limited edition mail order/online exclusives from Vaulternative and Zappa Records between 1994 and 2015, and drew upon his vast archive of previously unheard material from both the studio and the concert stage.
Among these offerings from the prolific artist are compilations, audio documentaries for classic albums Freak Out! (The MOFO Project Object) and Cruising with Ruben and the Jets (Greasy Love Songs) and classic live performances from varying line-ups over the years in which Zappa was joined by Flo and Eddie, George Duke, Peter Wolf, Adrian Belew, Steve Vai, and numerous other renowned musicians and singers. Full track listings for every title as well as personnel and credits can be found in the discography at Zappa’s official website.
