Frank Zappa

Frank Zappa fans anxiously awaiting the release of the Roxy By Proxy album will have to sit tight just a little bit longer, with the project experiencing some manufacturing delays.

It'll be worth it though: Roxy by Proxy has been described by the Zappa Family Trust as “All Roxy, No Elsewhere: 76 minutes of never-before-released Frank Zappa master recordings from the Roxy Performances of 9 & 10 December 1973: "Inca Roads," "Penguin in Bondage," "T’Mershi Duween," "Dog/Meat," "RDNZL," "Cheepnis & Dupree’s Paradise," "King Kong," "Chunga’s Revenge" and you know, that’s not all. Yes, it is the same band as the Roxy part of Roxy & Elsewhere.”

The set also includes a "voluminous booklet jacked with liner notes by the redoubtable Ms Ruth Underwood."

The new shipping date will be announced some time within the next two weeks, while the associated movie will be ready in time for the Zappa Plays Zappa show at the Roxy in West Hollywood on the 40th anniversary of Zappa's performances there.

The album can be preordered at the Barfko Swill store. It follows the release of the Gibson USA Frank Zappa® "Roxy" SG, based on Frank's own heavily modified SG Special.
