Zappa Records has announced a new archival title – and it’s a landmark, if bittersweet, addition to the library. Zappa ’88: The Last U.S. Show preserves the March 25, 1988 show at Uniondale, New York’s Nassau Coliseum that turned out to be the musician and bandleader’s final show on American soil. Zappa ’88: The Last U.S. Show, featuring the first release of Zappa’s “Beatles Medley” with lyrics rewritten to reflect the Jimmy Swaggart scandal, will be available from Zappa Records and UMe as a 2-CD set or a 4-LP 180-gram black vinyl box set as well as in digital configurations. A purple vinyl variant is also up for pre-order exclusively from uDiscoverMusic and the Zappa online store. Ahmet Zappa and “Vaultmeister” Joe Travers have produced this release featuring new mixes by Craig Parker Adams from the original 48-track digital masters. Liner notes have been written by Travers and Chad Wackerman; the drummer was celebrating his 28th birthday during the concert and was feted in song by Zappa and the audience. Peder Andersson’s photos round out the package.
