Frank Zappa Waka-Wazoo Boxset

In 1972, Frank Zappa experimented with an “Electric Orchestra” concept which resulted in two of his finest albums, Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo.

Documenting the recording sessions with outtakes and assorted oddities, Waka/Wazoo is a 4CD/Blu-ray set celebrating the 50th anniversary of the releases. Also included is a live show from the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco - from 12/15/72 - and the unreleased FZ produced George Duke demos.

A Blu-Ray Audio disc features both albums with brand-new Dolby Atmos and 5.1 mixes, plus the 96/24 high-res stereo remasters.
