MORE INFO

In October 2013, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, recorded the music of composer Frank Zappa which he had originally scored for his cult-classic movie “200 Motels.”  This limited-edition, purple-colored 7” single contains the opening piece from the concert, “Overture” (from 200 Motels) and another gem from the Zappa canon on the B-side; the previously unreleased recording of “What’s the Name of Your Group?” from the original score performed in 1971 by Zappa with the Royal Philharmonic.
