Zappa In New York was released in 1978. To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the release of the album UMC will release a triple vinyl edition on 29 March 2019.
This 40th Anniversary Edition features all-analog mastering of the original album mix, unavailable since first issued. Plus, an additional LP of select bonus content from The Vault, and new liner notes from Ruth Underwood and Ray White. The 3LP is pressed at Pallas, Germany on 180 gram audiophile grade vinyl.
Recorded live in New York City at the end of 1976. Heavy on, well, “freewheeling” lyrical content, with “Titties & Beer” and “The Illinois Enema Bandit” (the latter featuring “sophisticated narration” by Don Pardo) being special favorites with young males of a certain age. Also here is the song that gets most peoples’ vote for the best title ever to grace a Zappa instrumental, “I Promise Not to Come In Your Mouth.”
