The soundtrack to Alex Winter’s highly acclaimed Frank Zappa documentary, Zappa, will be released through Zappa Records/UMe next year as a five LP and three CD set next year. Zappa Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is also available to stream from digtial services right now.

Pre-orders for several physical releases of the soundtrack including in two deluxe formats: a 3CD edition (you can view the tracklist below) slated for February 19 and a 5LP box set planned for May 7, which will be available on 180-gram black vinyl as well as on limited edition 180-gram smoke vinyl, exclusively via Zappa.com, uDiscover and Sound of Vinyl online stores.

The deluxe physical and digital editions include 12 previously unreleased recordings from The Vault, which include performances from the Whisky A Go-Go in 1968, the Fillmore West in ‘70 and Zappa’s famed performance of Dancin’ Fool on Saturday Night Live in ’78.

The soundtrack features songs from Zappa’s record labels Straight and Bizarre Records such as No Longer Umpire from Alice Cooper’s debut album, Pretties For You, originally released on Straight in 1969; The Captain’s Fat Theresa Shoes by GTO’s, from the all-girl group’s one and only album, Permanent Damage, produced by Zappa.

It also includes two classical compositions by Zappa’s lifetime inspirations Edgard Varese and Igor Stravinsky as well as several interview clips. The soundtrack is rounded out with 26 original score cues newly composed by John Frizzell for the documentary.

A 2LP edition on 180-gram clear vinyl and 21-track digital edition will also be available, collecting together eight of the unreleased recordings from the Zappa archive, the SNL performance and 13 recordings from Zappa’s extensive recording career.
