Frank Zappa’s Astounding Mid-’70s Run of Rust Belt Gigs Collected for New ‘Erie’ Box Set

Six-CD set features three full concerts from 1974 to 1976 and seven hours of unreleased music

A trio of Frank Zappa’s Rust Belt-area concerts, performed during one of the rock legend’s most artistically fertile period, are the focus of an upcoming six-CD box set dubbed Zappa/Erie.

The box set captures a string of shows Zappa and his band (three different lineups) performed along the border of Pennsylvania and Ohio from 1974 to 1976, a three-year stretch that yielded his classic LPs Over-Nite Sensation, Apostrophe (‘), and One Size Fits All.

Tracks from all three albums are scattered throughout Zappa/Erie, as are songs from his earlier Mothers of Invention works and subsequent LPs, notably 1976’s Zoot Allures, which arrived just one month before the final full gig in the box set, a November 12, 1976 show from Erie, Pennsylvania.

Of the 71 songs featured on Zappa/Erie, all but 10 minutes remained unreleased in Zappa’s famed vault; only “Son of Orange County” and “More Trouble Every Day” have previously been heard, included as the Elsewhere portion of the 1974 live LP Roxy & Elsewhere.

The Zappa/Erie box set was a personal endeavor for Zappa Trust archivist and “vaultmeister” Joe Travers, as he grew up in the region. “When the Covid-19 pandemic hit in 2020, I found myself, like so many others, with a lot of extra time on my hands,” Travers writes in the liner notes. “Because of this, I threw myself even more deeply into archiving the fabulous vault of Mr. Frank Zappa. During this time, it dawned on me that in all my years being the Vaultmeister for Zappa, I had never prioritized documenting the concerts FZ played in my hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania.”

In addition to the Ohio/Pennsylvania shows, the six CDs are padded out by highlights from other Zappa gigs from the era. Zappa/Erie, due out June 6 and available to preorder now, also boasts liner notes documenting the shows by local journalists and Zappa experts, as well as concert posters, photos from the shows, and more.
