2016 Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For!

180g Vinyl LP! Cut Directly from Original 1/4" Stereo Analog Master Tapes!
Remastered for Vinyl by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

One of Zappa's Definitive Works!

The Zappa Family Trust presents more freshly remastered music with the 40th Anniversary Edition of Frank Zappa’s Apostrophe(’) on audiophile quality 180-gram vinyl. This special edition of the iconic 1974 album is cut directly from the original quarter-inch stereo analog master tapes.

Featuring definitive Zappa cuts “Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow” and “Cosmik Debris” among its original nine tracks, Apostrophe(’) was Zappa’s highest-charting album, peaking at No. 10 on the Billboard 200. The Gold-certified album has been remastered for vinyl by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and manufactured for the world at Pallas Group in Germany.

The 40th Anniversary Edition of Apostrophe(’) continues the Zappa Family Trust's ongoing commitment to the restoration of Frank Zappa’s albums on audiophile quality vinyl. Joe Travers, Vaultmeister, Zappa Archives, is working on the new LP releases with Bellman.

Apostrophe (') is an album by Frank Zappa, his eighteenth, released on March 22, 1974. An edited version of its lead-off track, "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow," was Zappa's first chart single, reaching position 86. Apostrophe (') remains Zappa's biggest commercial success in the US. It was certified Gold by the RIAA on April 7, 1976. The album also peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Charts and would end up becoming Zappa's highest-charting album.

Continuing from the commercial breakthrough of Over-Nite Sensation (1973), this album is a similar mix of short songs showcasing Zappa's humor and musical arrangements. The record's lyrical themes are often bizarre or obscure, with the exception of "Uncle Remus," which is an extension of Zappa's feelings on racial disharmony featured on his earlier song "Trouble Every Day."

Still avant-garde, 40 years after its release.
