Gail Zappa announces Roxy soundtrack

Gail Zappa Has some interesting news for us: She is launching a new series on the label Vaulternative Records, and she is announcing the release of the "prequel to the actual soundtrack" of the Roxy DVD.
Here is what Gail says, in her own words:

Dear People of Earth,
Here's what's thrilling:

1. It is Moon's Birthday today! And this morning I was lucky enough to have a cold breakfast with Moon and Mathilda - Ice Cream Cake and the sun wasn't even up yet. Yay! 

2. I know I do not have to remind you that next December 2013 is the 40th Anniversary of the Roxy Performances. Now that we have thoroughly identified all it's parts and participles, we will deliver The Movie without further incident and maybe only a little ado. In theatres, DVD and Blue-ray, sometime before December, 2013. 

3. MEANWHILE . . . before this December 2012, in anticipation of The ACTUAL Movie, we are pleased to inform you that we are scheduling the release of the PREQUEL to the actual Soundtrack. Yes. You will! Appreciate the raw unbridledness of the 75 minutes and 49 seconds of Roxy without the Elsewhere. Further details on The Movie and P.S. (Prequel Soundtrack) as soon as the duckies are all lined up. 

 4. Oh, and did I mention a new series is about to launch - Road Tapes - on Vaulternative Records! We've taken direct aim at Halloween! 

5. Thank you. 




Comment by Sigurd Huckle, the Radio Dupree Zappa department: 
The Road Tapes project sounds really interesting. Could that include a release of "the big one", the concert at The Palladium, N.Y.C. October 31, 1978? (A very long show including performances of some rare material.)
In May Gail wrote about the release of a Roxy soundtrack and if she manages to release it before December it will surely please many fans! When it comes to the release of the long awaited Roxy DVD, that one has been delayed before, so don't hold your breath.
