Frank Zappa's celebrated December 1976 concerts at New York's Palladium are getting boxed up for a new 40th-anniversary set. The four shows – held the week between Christmas and New Year's – were later whittled down for 1978's Zappa in New York double album.

Zappa In New York" released in 1978. The live double album was recorded at a series of shows at The Palladium, NYC, December 26-29, 1976. The album saw a brief release in early 1977 with FZ's intended tracklisting, before being quickly withdrawn by Warner Bros. The changes made by Warner Bros violated FZ's contract, which gave him complete artistic control over his music.

Frank Zappa’s seminal live double album Zappa in New York will celebrate its 40th anniversary with an extensive reissue that includes over three hours of previously unreleased performances. The five-disc set will arrive March 29th via Zappa Records and Universal Music. The original set was recorded during Zappa’s four-night run at the Palladium in New York between Christmas and New Year’s 1976. The unreleased live tracks were also newly mixed from the original two-inch 24-track master tapes. A five-CD set will include all the aforementioned material, a replica ticket from the show, previously unseen live photos shot by Gail Zappa, liner notes from Zappa band members Ruth Underwood and Ray White, and an essay by Travers with Jen Jewel Brown.

Eat That Question, the new Frank Zappa documentary from director Thorsten Schutte, is in theaters now. The film primarily revolves around clips, interviews and a vast selection of footage; all of which takes an attention-grabbing deep-dive into the mind of the prodigious musical genius. Not only is this newly-released rock doc chock-full of great footage and mind-blowing music; but it will make a newborn Zappa fan out of any newcomer who watches. 43. Titties & Beer Album: Zappa in New York Released: 1977 Starting off the ever-so-cherished Zappa in New York record, is this masterful work of musicianship, humor and onstage performance. The song would feature drummer Terry Bozzio wearing a rubber mask of Satan, playing the part of the devil; while Zappa assumed the role of the main character who’s girlfriend was gobbled up by the beer-guzzling Beelzebub.
