What's it called?:
12 Zappa reissues
What does it sound like?:
I just bought the first three releases from Universal's first batch of their Zappa Catalogue Reissue Project (there are 12 titles currently available - basically the first Mothers/Zappa LPs up to 1972). And very fine they sound, too - taken mostly from the original "analogue masters", so the maestro's fiddling with his classics is kept to a minimum.
What does it all *mean*?:
Mrs. Zappa promised that this time they'll get everything right. And apparently they did - and: the booklets reproduce every element of the original sleeves (in readable size!) up to the last detail.
Goes well with …:
...the other 48 reissues to come.
Might suit people who like …:
...to have a good-looking physical product on their shelves.
