The Zappa Family Trust, in a deal with Universal Music Enterprises, will release 60 Frank Zappa re-mastered recordings, beginning on July 31 with 12 albums.
"The ink is not yet dry on The Zappa Family Trust's worldwide deal with Universal Music Enterprises. They made us the offer we couldn't refuse—for all the right reasons. It is a win-win for all of us, but mostly for Frank Zappa. Long may his baton wave. We are so ready to go," said Gail Zappa.
