FINER MOMENTS OUT NOW ON VINYL
OVER-NITE SENSATION AND FREAK OUT! DUE IN JUNE
Ever since the Zappa Family Trust regained control of Frank Zappa's Barking Pumpkin
catalog, they've been putting out reissues at a furious pace. Up next are three vinyl
releases as Finer Moments hit stores earlier this month, while FZ's 1966 debut
Freak-Out and 1973's Over-Nite Sensation are coming out on 180-gram vinyl
Zappa Vaultmeiser Joe Travers has been working on these new vinyl releases with Chris
Bellman of Bernie Grundman mastering. The vinyl version of Freak-Out, considered
the first concept/double album in rock history, comes from the 1966 stereo mix. Over-
Nite Sensation contains such beloved tunes as "Dinah-Moe Humm," "I'm The Slime" and
"Camarillo Brillo." Finer Moments was recorded in the early '70s, but wasn't
released until last year.
Watch Zappa and his band's memorable performance of "I'm The Slime" from Saturday Night
Live featuring a cameo from legendary announcer Don Pardo.
