This collection brilliantly commemorates the critically-acclaimed 2006 concerts which presented a collection of Zappa's rock-oriented compositions from the 1960s through the 1980s: this 2 DVD/3 CD set is a tour de force of rock guitar virtuosity. Filmed in Portland and Seattle, this set is a guitarist's dream come true. Featuring Dweezil Zappa with Terry Bozzio and Steve Vai, a dash of Frank Zappa's social commentary and wit, this set is a document like no other available! Also featured are a mix of musicians who previously played with Frank Zappa including Mothers of Invention member Napoleon Murphy Brock. In addition, Zappa himself performs posthumously via synchronized A/V technology.

Recorded live at two shows, one in Portland and the other in Seattle, this concert film captures two dynamic and unforgettable performances from a tour featuring Dweezil Zappa playing hits from his father's extensive catalogue. Along for the ride were fellow musicians Joe Travers, Pete Griffin, and many other talented players who not only capture the spirit of Frank Zappa's tunes, but also reinterpret them for a new generation of fans.

Born in Forlì (Italy) in 1951, Riccardo Zappa is widely recognized as the greatest Italian acoustic guitarist. For five consecutive years he was voted the best in the poll promoted by the famous monthly magazine "Guitar Club". After that, he was declared to be no longer eligible for nomination. His music is in fact quite unique in the whole Italian prog scene; not can many other comparisons be found outside Italy, except perhaps Mike Oldfield, for his long, acoustic-based instrumental compositions…

This is the one that has the Zappa online forums really buzzing! Though nothing was ever officially released from Frank's Petit Wazoo 1972 tour until 2005 (on the Zappa Family Trust release Imaginary Diseases), Frank had revisited and worked on the material that makes up this sequel to that '05 release in spurts throughout the '70s and '80s. Finally we get more from this massively improvisational period that found FZ leading a 10-piece horn-driven lineup. "Cosmik Debris," "Little Dots" (two versions), "Rollo," "Kansas City Shuffle" and two versions of "Columbia, S.C."

In the 20th Century, Frank Zappa made his mark as a musician unlike any other in America. With a wild eccentric iconoclastic attitude guiding his distinctive music, which it was itself guided by a firm intellectual integrity, Zappa made himself an unforgettable force in popular music. This film covers his life and work through various archival footage through the decades. Whether it was his taboo challenging early creations, his outspoken efforts against the political forces determined to censor him or his constant quest for new artistic challenges, Zappa made a mark no one could ignore.

By the closing months of 1981 Frank Zappa had already released five albums during that productive year. Three of these records were his instrumental guitar collections - Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar, Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar Some More, and The Return of the Son of Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar - initially sold via mail order but later released through CBS. There was also the live double Tinseltown Rebellion and the 2-LP studio set You Are What You Is, released in September. Zappa also hit the road in September 81, performing a largely domestic tour that criss-crossed the US and took in a couple of shows in Canada between September and Christmas. On board for the tour were Frank s latest touring band, comprising Chad Wackerman on drums, Ed Mann on percussion, Tommy Mars on keyboards, Scott Thunes on bass, with Steve Vai and Ray White on guitar.

Official Release #85. This triple volume package contains an audio documentary tracing the conception and construction of Frank Zappa's We're Only in It for the Money (1968) and Lumpy Gravy (1968) masterworks. As the second entry in the Project/Object series (the first being the MoFo Project/Object in 2006 that gathered four CDs worth of goodies from the Freak Out! era), the modus operandi for Lumpy Money (2009) remains much the same as its predecessor. Presented within are primary components from both works in several unique – and formerly unissued – incarnations and configurations. It should also be noted that neither of Zappa's mid-'90s approved masters for We're Only in It for the Money or Lumpy Gravy are found here. Instead of retreading those – which (as of this 2009 writing) remain in print on the Rykodisc label – the nearly three-and-a-half hours served up here offer an embarrassment of insight into the development of the music, as well as the modular recording style that Zappa was evermore frequently incorporating into his craft.
