Zappa Records/UMe releases the 40th anniversary 3-disc deluxe edition of Frank Zappa’s Orchestral Favorites! The Zappa Family Trust is giving the 1979 album the audiophile detail and respect it deserves and that was lacking in the original release. Unpromoted at the time and issued alongside several other titles without Zappa’s permission or quality control, it was publicly criticised by the artist for its lack of liner notes or credits and unapproved artwork. The new edition from Zappa Records/UMe commemorates the event at UCLA’s Royce Hall where the album compositions were recorded in September 1975. Produced by Ahmet Zappa and Joe Travers, the new edition of Orchestral Favorites will feature not only the original album but the entire evening performance from 18 September 1975, spread across two additional discs. Extensive searches in the Vault uncovered the elusive master tone reel, which crucially contains the alignment tones that help set up the playback of the master tapes. Zappa reportedly did not provide this reel when he delivered the album. The Zappa Family Trust is now thus able to present the audio as originally intended. Hi-res transfers from the original tapes have been completed, and with mastering by Bob Ludwig, the audio quality is now better than ever.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Frank Zappa Catalog Studio Masters

Disc 3, Tracks 1-13; Disc 1, Tracks 1-6; Disc 2, Tracks 1-7 – contains high-resolution digital transfers of material originating from an analogue master source

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!
