Zappa family releases original Lumpy Gravy

The Zappa Family Trust will release a three-CD "audio documentary" on November 25.

Billboard reports that the set focuses on the 60’s albums We’re Only In It For The Money and Lumpy Gravy.
It will include two mixes of each album, done by Frank himself:
"It will include feature the first official release of the instrumental, Igor Stravinsky-influenced orchestral "ballet" version of Lumpy Gravy that Zappa recorded in 1967 for Capitol Records but decided to revamp, adding rock musicians and eventually releasing it on MGM/Verve four months after We're Only in it For the Money in 1968.”
