Frank Zappa’s 1979 double album, Sheik Yerbouti, is newly remastered from the original analog masters for worldwide reissue by Zappa Records/UMe. Frank Zappa’s first release on his own Zappa Records, Sheik Yerbouti’s 18 tracks include the European smash hit “Bobby Brown,” the disco-inspired (and GRAMMY®-nominated) “Dancin’ Fool,” and the Peter Frampton-inspired “I Have Been In You.” Zappa produced the album from several 1977 and 1978 concerts recorded in the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Sweden with some studio elements. In his 1979 Sheik Yerbouti review for Rolling Stone, David Fricke appreciated Zappa’s myriad talents and the album’s humor: “… it reaffirms (at least for the faithful) Zappa’s chops as a bandleader and rock & roll wit who doesn’t have to be socially relevant to get a laugh.” With more than two million copies sold worldwide, Sheik Yerbouti continues to be one of the most popular albums of Frank Zappa’s vast recorded catalog.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
