Halloween 77 Box Set Preorder

From October 28 – 31, 1977 Frank Zappa held his annual Halloween run at the Palladium in New York City. Zappa and his band played six historic shows at the venue and the entire run will be released as the Halloween 77 box set on October 20 via Zappa Records/UMe.

The Halloween 77 box set will feature all six shows with 158 tracks (mixed in 2016 from original vault masters) loaded onto a “Zappa’s Oh Punky” fun size candy bar-shaped USB drive in 24-bit WAV audio. Halloween 77 also includes a 28-page digital booklet featuring never-before-seen photos and liner notes from Vaultmeister Joe Travers as well as personal firsthand accounts from many of Zappa’s bandmates, crew and fans who were there, including guitarist Adrian Belew, percussionist Ed Mann, keyboard tech Thomas Nordegg, tour manager Phil Kaufman and fan Janet “The Planet” Walley. Plus, the box set will incorporate a retro Halloween mask and costume of the maestro himself. A 3CD version featuring the Halloween night concert with bonus tracks from the night before will also be available.

Zappa’s 1977 lineup of the band featured Terry Bozzio on drums, Tommy Mars and Peter Wolf on keyboards, Adrian Belew on guitar and vocals, Ed Mann on percussion and Patrick O’Hearn on bass. The group averaged 25 songs each show and threw in exciting jams and audience participation segments.

If you look under F (for Frank Zappa), M (for Mothers of Invention), and Z (for Zappa) using this database - http://tela.sugarmegs.org/ - you will find literally hundreds and hundreds of uploaded full concerts. Some have pretty decent sound, some not so much, but they cover just about every period and band configuration.
