ZAPPAatite: Frank Zappa’s Tastiest Tracks, a career-spanning collection of Zappa’s back-catalogue, will be released on September 23.

A prolific, eccentric, performer Zappa’s output features over 60 albums as a solo-artist and member of Mothers of Invention. 2016 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Mothers of Invention’s debut, Freak Out!

To coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of Mothers of Invention’s debut, Freak Out!, Zappa’s releases have been compressed into an 18-track primer. His son, Ahmet Zappa and archivist, Joe Travers have compiled the album. It will be split into three food-themed sections: Appetizers, Entrees and Desserts to accompany the album cover of Zappa.


“This isn’t a greatest hits album as Frank didn’t really have ‘hits,’ nor is it a ‘best of’ since that would be impossible to fit on a single disc,” said Ahmet Zappa. “ZAPPAtite collects a cross section of my favourite songs that lean more towards the rock side of his expansive repertoire.”

The tracklisting is:

1. I’m The Slime
2. Dirty Love
3. Dancin’ Foo
4. Trouble Every Day

5. Peaches En Regalia
6. Tell Me You Love Me
7. Bobby Brown Goes Down
8. You Are What You Is
9. Valley Girl
10. Joe’s Garage
11. Cosmik Debris
12. Sofa No. 1
13. Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow

14. Titties & Beer
15. G-Spot Tornado
16. Cocaine Decisions
17. Zoot Allures
18. Strictly Genteel
