"A very early raga recording of La Monte Young and The Theatre Of Eternal Music. It's unclear who else appears on this material (possibly Dennis Johnson and/or Terry Jennings).
Notable is that, if the year given on the cover is correct, it predates the involvement of Marian Zazeela, Tony Conrad, Angus MacLise and John Cale by roughly two years. This is probably one of the earliest records of the commune.
Founded in 1960 in the area of New York, the Theatre of Eternal Music (a.k.a. The Dream...

"The music of Thierry Zaboitzeff cannot be neatly fitted into any existing musical category. On and off one might be tempted by a few bars which indicate a category but soon enough such certainty is shattered.
If Zaboitzeff is in the mood to sound like a child immersed in games, he will. But if he wishes to create a monster through his music, he can and will do so just as well. His music ranges from light and airy to deep and heavy, it is as diverse as life itself. The music accommodates the...

Samla Mammas Manna was the original band of keyboardist/composer Lars Hollmer. They blended progressive with bits of folk elements & more. This was their last in their original lifetime, & has some simply amazing playing from all, including under-heralded guitar genius Eino Haapala.

This album marks the beginning of the more experimental side of Samla, who changed their name to Zamla MM to deliniate the difference. Those crazy Swedes! Original guitarist Coste Apetrea left and guitarist Eino Haapla joined. Coste is a great guitaris...

“After falling out with his long-time manager Herb Cohen, Frank Zappa spent much of the late 1970s in a legal battle with Cohen and later with Warner Brothers too. With the majority of his own recorded material thus tied up, Zappa concentrated on touring with a small, rock-oriented band. March 1978 witnessed the release of Zappa In New York, recorded live with a 13-strong band at the Palladium in late December 1976. Demonstrating in equal measure Zappa's extraordinary ability as a composer and fearless

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.

"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

“On March 19, 1979 the band performed at the Parc de Penfeld, in Brest, France, for a show that was recorded for live FM Radio Broadcast, transmitted across continental Europe and synched too on many US stations.
Featuring a line-up which included, Ike Willis and Warren Cuccurullo on guitars, Tommy Mars and Peter Wolf on keyboards, Ed Mann on percussion, Arthur Barrow on bass and Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, the musicianship was, as always, second-to-none, and the gig a roaring success with many...

"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

“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.”

"Halloween was Frank Zappa's favorite holiday and by 1977 his Halloween shows were legendary. Recorded live at The Palladium in NYC, Zappa performed six shows 28-31 October. Four shows were filmed and resulted in Zappa's movie Baby Snakes. The Halloween 77 three CD version includes the Halloween night show in it's entirety, mixed in 2016 from original Vault masters, plus select tracks from the other five shows."

"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).

“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"...

“By October 1977, Frank Zappa was firmly established as an iconic and iconoclastic rock star. He had recently been preparing Läther (1977), a proposed four-LP set, due for release on Halloween. However, his label declined to proceed, leading to protracted legal hassles. This show, at The Palladium, New York was broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour, was on the album's release date, and finds the great man in superb form, as he tackles a range of material, much of it from Läther. The entire broadcast...

"Frank Zappa's 1988 tour turned out to be his last. Many fans consider it to be FZ's best tour ever; the presence of horns, percussion and "stunt guitar" (not to mention the infamous Synclavier) gave the band a tumbrel variety lacking in the synth-dominated '84 tour, and the proliferation of "secret words" made each show unique.
Unfortunately, the tour proved to be a turbulent experience for Zappa due to conflicts among the band members, and this ultimately cut short the existence of this lineup...
