"Frank Zappa Plays the Music of Frank Zappa: A Memorial Tribute" by Frank Zappa Is Released
Frank Zappa Plays the Music of Frank Zappa: A Memorial Tribute is a posthumous album by Frank Zappa.
According to the liner notes, Frank's son Dweezil talked with his father shortly before Frank's death about the songs Frank had written that he would consider to be his "signature" tunes. These were "Zoot Allures", "Black Napkins" and "Watermelon in Easter Hay". The album compiles the original album versions of these three pieces, along with an alternate, live take of each, and the track "Merely a Blues in A", a blues improvisation recorded in Paris in 1974. It was released by The Zappa Family Trust and is only available online from Barfko-Swill—the mail-order section on zappa.com.
