Uncle Meat/Show End 4:01TT: 64:46 On February 2nd, Zappa Records/UMe will release the long-awaited The Roxy Performances, a box set of audio from all four of Frank Zappa’s lauded performances at The Roxy in Hollywood on December 9th and 10th, 1973. Previously, the Zappa Family Trust released Roxy: The Movie in 2015, a film chronicling this renowned Frank Zappa run also featuring George Duke, Napoleon Murphy Brock, Tom Fowler, Bruce Fowler, Ruth Underwood, Ralph Humphrey, and Chester Thompson. However, the film’s soundtrack was limited, as it only contained highlights for the various performances. In contrast, The Roxy Performances will be extensive and rings in at eight hours of music, also including audio from the invite-only soundcheck and film shoot on December 8th, 1973, ahead of The Roxy run.The box set is currently available for pre-order and can be found here. In addition to eight hours of music, The Roxy Performances also contains a 48-page booklet with liner notes and essays from Zappa family friends. Those who pre-order The Roxy Performances will be rewarded with bonus materials, such as audio of Frank Zappa’s session at Ike Turner’s Bolic Sound in Inglewood a few days after the final Roxy show and an immediate download of “RDNZL” from the December 9th early performance.As explained by Ahmet Zappa, who helped co-produce The Roxy Performances with archivist Joe Travers, “This is one of my favorite FZ line-ups ever. This box contains some of the best nights of music Los Angeles has ever seen with their ears at an historic venue. … Hold on to your hotdogs people. This box is the be-all-end-all. This is it. This is all of it. It’s time to get your rocks off for the Roxy.”last_img
