Frank Zappas vaults will reopen in July for a pair of new releases, Frank Zappa for President and The Crux of the Biscuit.
Both scheduled to arrive July 15, the new Titles explore different sides of Zappas many-faceted musical personality. Frank Zappa for President? You betcha! We know at various times he wanted to run for office, reads a Label press release. In the spirit of the dramatic 2016 presidential election adventures comes a release that gives us a glimpse into what could have been. This album is comprised of unreleased compositions realized on the Synclavier, along with other relevant tracks mined from the Vault, with a political thread tying it all together.
