FRANK ZAPPA RADIO SHOW ALBUMS

The list of Frank Zappa radio show albums just keeps getting longer.

Here's a couple that I recently came across:

  • frank zappa: zappa fm - live in rotterdam 1980
        (2021, lp, --, pearl hunters records) - on pink vinyl

  • frank zappa: live in vancouver 1975

        (2019, lp, --, radio looploop) = a copy of the 2016 (unofficial) release on the dol label


MARUTYRI

Marutyri is a 9-piece band that shares a passion for the beauty and complexity of fusion music.

At least, that's what their Bandcamp page says.
I can only confirm that what I've heard sounds amazing.

Marutyri's funk / fusion mix is the kind of music that makes one feel happy.
This morning, I enjoyed "The Tribe" (one of their early EP's), Inner Movements (their debut album, nomited for an Edison Award in NL at the time), and "Live At Reysland Studios" (their latest release). 

  • marutyri: the tribe
        (2015, cd ep, nl, private release)


  • marutyri: inner movements
        (2016, cd, nl, challenge records)

  • marutyri: live at raysland studios
        (2019, download/streaming, nl, --)


 

WIDESPREAD PANIC

Widespread Panic did another run at The Beacon in NYC recently.
Sound pretty good, and, yes, that's Jimmy Herring on his PRS NF3 guitar.

John Bell – Dave Schools – Domingo S. Ortiz – John Hermann – Jimmy Herring – Duane Trucks

FRANK ZAPPA RADIO SHOW ALBUMS

Unofficial and unauthorised but does that mean that they're illegal ?
I have to admit that I buy one every once in a while.
But only when I happen to come across one :-)
And, no, as a matter of fact, I didn't bring these home from Zappanale. These can be found in a lot of major internet shops.
Here are some 'recent' radio show releases.
BTW, it's funny how all of these albums mention FM radio broadcasts as a source. For some of these, it's true, but very often it is not. And they never use the original recordings but almost always the recordings that are up (and available for free) at the Zappateers website.

  • frank zappa; king biscuit flower hour
        (2022, lp, --, radio sound broadcast) - coloured vinyl, limited to 300 copies.
    = Munich, 1980/07/03

  • frank zappa: austin 1973
        (2021, 2lp, --, parachute recording company)
    = Austin, 1973/10/26

  • frank zappa: the rehearsal broadcast - philadelphia 1988
        (2021, 2lp, -, parachute recordings company)
    = Philadephia, 1988/02/14 - rehearsal + concert

  • frank zappa: under the covers - the songs he didn't write
        (2020, 2lp, -, parachute recordings company)
    = Various dates and locations
