Is surround sound going to take off? Its chances of becoming the new industry standard will be dramatically enhanced if we get many more releases exclusive to the format like Zappa’s Halloween. Recorded live in New York in October 1978, Dweezil Zappa’s 5:1 production brilliantly places you right there in the middle of the hall. Clever, adventurous, self-indulgent and silly all at the same time, Zappa is in characteristic form and his guitar playing is incendiary on favourites such as “Easy Meat” and “Stink-Foot”. Play alongside the long available Zappa In New York double CD, recorded the same year, and the full potential of surround sound becomes self-evident.
