In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Frank Zappa’s Orchestral Favorites album, comes a new edition presented the way Frank originally intended.

With audiophile detail and respect it deserves, commemorating the historical event that took place at UCLA’s Royce Hall in September 1975 where the compositions were recorded, Orchestral Favorites is now available as a special 40th anniversary 3CD deluxe set, featuring brand new proper hi-fi transfers of the original tapes, a newly created cover, and extensive liner notes from Zappa Vaultmeister Joe Travers and former Zappa bandmate Terry Bozzio, plus beautiful new packaging highlighting a wealth of stunning rare and never-before-seen photos of the event from the estate’s archives.

Produced by Ahmet Zappa and Joe Travers, the deluxe version of this comprehensive collection includes the original album, plus the entire evening performance from September 18, 1975 available for the first time ever, newly mixed in 2019 and spread across the two additional discs. Orchestral Favorites is also released on vinyl, featuring the original album mastered by Bernie Grundman and the newly generated anniversary art and cover, and pressed on 180-gram audiophile grade black vinyl.
