Orchestral Favorites is an album by Frank Zappa first released in May 1979 on his own DiscReet Records label. The album is instrumental and features music performed by the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra. The album's creation was spurred by Warner Bros. rejection of Zappa's Läther album. Then Frank Zappa got into a disagreement with his record company, Warner Bros. and Läther was split up into several different releases as part of a contractual agreement. The results were dumped on the market during 1978 and 1979, while Zappa moved on to his own record label. Frank Zappas 1979 album Orchestral Favorites is re-examined for its 40th anniversary and will be reissued as a double vinyl or expanded 3CD deluxe in August. The instrumental album was actually recorded at UCLAs Royce Hall in September 1975 and features music performed by the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra. 40 years on, the Zappa Family Trust have found the original tapes along with the tone reel that allows proper set-up of the master tapes and cr.
