Zappa's Fourth Solo Album on 180g Vinyl LP!
50th Anniversary Reissue of the Classic Wazoo Period 1972 Release!
All-Analog Mastering by Bernie Grundman in 2022!

Analog Planet Rated 10/11 Music, 10/11 Sonics!

In 1972 FZ experimented with an "Electric Orchestra" concept which resulted in two albums: Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of this endeavor, Waka/Jawaka is available as a 1LP 180g black vinyl.

These Waka/Wazoo-era releases are essential listening for the instrumentally oriented Frank Zappa music fan. Between Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo, you'll find this is some of the most heartfelt music Zappa ever made.
