Frank Zappa's Family Trust Letting Fans Release Roxy By Proxy

12/20/2012
.
(OP) The Zappa Family Trust and Zappa Records are offering up the unprecedented opportunity for Zappa fans to license their very own copies of Roxy By Proxy by Frank Zappa with The Mothers of Invention.

For a $1000 licensing fee, fans can own a master duplication copy of Roxy By Proxy (All Roxy No Elsewhere): 76 minutes of never-before-released Frank Zappa master recordings from the Roxy performances of December 9 & 10, 1973 including "Inca Roads," "Penguin in Bondage," "T'Mershi Duween," "Dog/Meat," "RDNZL," "Cheepnis & Dupree's Paradise," "King Kong," "Chunga's Revenge" and more.

They will also be provided with liner notes and packaging artwork so they can duplicate the CDs to sell at any price they choose, with a $1.20 per CD mechanical royalty to be paid back to Zappa Records. The opportunity is valid now through December 28.

Interested fans/participants can sell as many copies of the album as they'd like at the retail level, as official licensed distributors for the Zappa Family Trust. They can also give CDs away as gifts. All the details can be found here.

Proceeds from this unprecedented opportunity are being used to complete the long-awaited film The Roxy Performances--recorded December 10, 11 and 12, 1973 in Los Angeles and released in part on 1974's Roxy & Elsewhere CD--for eventual theatrical release and on DVD. According to the ZFT, "You are the ones who want it and you are the ones we need to help us make it happen! This is also a big Thank You to all the fans that are ready willing and able to participate in the ultimate adventure of distributing this record. We are grateful–and we are hopeful that you will show us how to do it better than it has ever been done before."
