Frank Zappa ‘Halloween 81’ Box Set To Be Released In October

A Frank Zappa Halloween 81 box set, featuring unreleased live tracks from several shows held in New York City in 1981, will be released on October 2.

Zappa’s historic October 31 Halloween night concerts and the closing November 1 show recorded live at The Palladium will be released as a gigantic six-disc box set featuring 78 unreleased live tracks totaling more than seven hours of live performances.

The specially-designed costume box, including a Count Frankula mask along with a red and black cape, will be available via Zappa Records/UMe.

In addition, a 1CD version titled Halloween 81: Highlights From The Palladium, will also be released, featuring performances from all three shows along with an exclusive track, “Strictly Genteel.”

“Halloween 1981 became one of Zappa’s most popular of all the Halloween residencies in New York City,” says Zappa Vaultmeister Joe Travers. “The image of Frank in his hot magenta jumpsuit has gone on to become an iconic one in the world of rock and roll.”
