...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

40th Anniversary Edition of Frank Zappa's Apostrophe(') Now on 180-Gram Vinyl

40th Anniversary Edition of Frank Zappa's Apostrophe(') Now on 180-Gram Vinyl
The ZAPPA FAMILY TRUST presents more freshly remastered music with the 40th Anniversary Edition of Frank Zappa's Apostrophe(') on audiophile quality 180-gram vinyl. Cut directly from the original quarter-inch stereo analog master tapes, the special edition of the iconic 1974 album will be released on September 30.
Featuring definitive Zappa cuts "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" and "Cosmik Debris" among its original nine tracks,Apostrophe(') was Zappa's highest-charting album, peaking at No. 10 on the Billboard 200. The Gold-certified album has been remastered for vinyl by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and manufactured for the world at Pallas Group in Germany.
The 40th Anniversary Edition of Apostrophe(') continues the ZAPPA FAMILY TRUST's ongoing commitment to the restoration of Frank Zappa's albums on audiophile quality vinyl. Joe Travers, Vaultmaster, Zappa Archives, is working on the new LP releases with Bellman.
In 2012, when the rights to the iconic composer's masters reverted back to Zappa Records and the ZAPPA FAMILY TRUST headed by Zappa's widow Gail Zappathe family made his entire recorded catalog available on iTunes for the first time and began remastering the albums for reissue on vinyl. Presented with proper care and attention to detail, the releases honor the iconic legacy of the Composer, Guitarist, Bandleader, Filmmaker and Irrepressible Wit.
