Xhol were one of the earliest Krautrockers, releasing their 1st (this) in 1969, which is issued on CD for the 1st time here. A must own for fans of Krautrock, these guys were unknown & undiscovered until the recent Krautrock revival & are still underap...

Xhol were one of the earliest Krautrockers, releasing their 1st in 1969. The band apparently broke up some time in 1970, as the writing on this one released in 1972 (their 3rd and last until the various archival thingies in the 90s and later), says...

"After playing live music from 1989 to 1996 with his band Art Zoyd for the films Nosferatu (Murnau), Faust (Murnau) and Hâxan (Christensen), fifteen years later Thierry Zaboitzeff once again sets off to tackle a new project.
This time he is alone on the stage, surrounded by a complete arsenal of high-tech equipment, yet including his favourite instruments: cello, bass, percussion, guitar and his voice.
In the midst of this forest of instruments, cables and electronics, Zaboitzeff sees himself...

"On the evening of October 23, 2013, Walt Disney Concert Hall was the place to be in Los Angeles, as Esa-Pekka Salonen conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Master Chorale in a spectacular, sold-out orchestral performance of Frank Zappa's 200 Motels (The Suites). The acclaimed, one-night-only 13-suite performance of Zappa's 1971 masterwork was recorded and is released here!

Amazing. This was one of the unavailable holy grails for Zappa fans, which has never been seen since its one airing in 1974 until the DVD and now this soundtrack were finally released in 2013.
The band is amazing and the performances are amazing. Nearly 75' long! Highly recommended!

"Having recorded some works with a large orchestra in January 1983, in January 1984, Frank Zappa arranged for some of his chamber works to be performed by Pierre Boulez's Ensemble InterContemporain, a 16-piece group. "The Perfect Stranger," "Naval Aviation In Art?," and "Dupree's Paradise" were given this treatment, and the four remaining tracks are the product of Zappa's music synthesizer, the Synclavier. As usual, Zappa's "serious" works are

"Buffalo is a two-hour-and-20-minute, two-CD set chronicling Zappa's appearance at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo, New York, on October 25, 1980. At that time, the 39-year-old composer/guitarist/singer had assembled a particularly adept band including "stunt" guitarist Steve Vai and virtuoso drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and, freed from record company restrictions, was preparing a lot of new material for his new Barking Pumpkin Records label."-AllMusic

Despite the 'concealed' bit below, this is a very, very good sounding 1971 concert recording!

"As history would have it, and thanks to the persistence of promoter Ron Delsener, Frank Zappa & his Mothers actually played Carnegie Hall. The two shows on October 11th, 1971 were recorded for posterity to mono 1/4' tape using a concealed Nagra tape machine and a Electrovoice 664 microphone. Both shows are presented here in their entirety along with the opening set of show 1 by the fabulous accapella...

“This Vaulternative Records concert release finds Zappa and band at the Uptown Theater, Chicago, Ill - September 29, 1978. Of the two shows played that evening, the late show is captured here in its entirety. As you would expect, the concert delivers with a good blend of fan favorites, blistering guitar solos, audience participation, on-the-spot improvisations and stellar playing from a talented band line-up.”

"Civilization Phaze III is the sixty-third album by Frank Zappa, released posthumously as a double album on October 31, 1994. It was the first studio album of new material from Zappa since 1986's Jazz from Hell.

This is the previously undocumented tour that Frank did in 1972 with "The Petit Wazoo" band in the fall/winter. A 10 piece band: Frank Zappa-guitar, conductor, vocals, Malcolm McNabb-trumpet, Gary Barone-trumpet, flugelhorn, Tom Malone-tuba, saxes...

The first release that allowed the world to hear Frank’s synclavier music.

"While Frank Zappa had ostensibly been "on his own" since the dissolution of the Mothers of Invention in 1969, never before had he used the term "solo artist" as literally as he does on the Grammy Award winning (in the "Best Rock Instrumental Performance by an orchestra, group or soloist" category) Jazz from Hell (1986).
After two decades of depending on the skills, virtuosity, and temperament of other musicians...

“Little Dots is the sequel to 2005's Imaginary Diseases. It features additional hand-picked selections from the Maestro himself of the 10-piece 'Petit Wazoo' tour of late 1972. Although FZ worked on this material during different time periods throughout the 70s and 80s, nothing was ever officially released during his lifetime. Now we get the chance to hear more from this horn-driven ensemble, featuring mammoth improvisations and unreleased compositions. Little Dots features "Cosmik Debris," "Little Dots"...

"This CD compiles a bunch of songs and tunes that Frank Zappa was involved with in various ways before he became known as the leader of the Mothers Of Invention.
For several years prior to the Mothers becoming MGM-Verve recording artists, Frank was associated with the Pal Recording Studio, whose owner and operator was Paul Buff. It was here, in Cucamonga, under Buff's tutelage, that Frank learned how to use a studio to create music, as opposed to simply writing dots on paper. Frank later bought the...

"Between 1985 and 1987, Frank Zappa released a pair of mail-order vinyl box sets called Old Masters that contained remastered and restored versions of all of his albums between Freak Out! and Zoot Allures. Each box contained an album of previously unreleased material called a "mystery disc."
Although he eventually reworked and remixed a handful of these cuts for subsequent releases, the majority of these recordings were never again released in any form.
As part of their exhaustive reissue of...

"As Gail Zappa's liner notes inform us, this material was all recorded, mixed and produced by FZ and then set aside... It was then much later compiled into this '08 release, and I bet it won't be reissued any time soon, hence the apt title. So, for any FZ fan this is definitely worth getting. It has some great music, with "Occam's Razor"...

The results were dumped on the market during 1978 and 1979, while Zappa moved on to his own record label. Orchestral Favorites consists of material...
