FZ88: A Visual Documentary of Zappa's Final Tour (softcover edition - signed)
Product Code fz88
FZ88 follows in the wake of my hugely successful Zappa The Hard Way book. That title, published in 2010, documented Zappa's last tour in great detail. The only thing it really lacked was a swathe of great photos to accompany the insightful and in depth story. This new title now completes the picture in more ways than one, built around the photos of Sergio Albonico. The name will be familiar to Zappa buffs as Albonico’s photos were used on the tour programme as well as the album release Guitar. Now for the first time ever an extensive selection of Albonico’s photos are published in this limited edition hardback book.
Produced in a custom-made presentation box, it includes a set of prints alongside the many photos that adorn the pages of the book. My text puts the photos in context, along with an interview with Albonico. This publication is further enhanced by the a 1988 interview with Zappa conducted by his former secretary, Pauline Butcher, as well as other previously unpublished photos and memorabilia from the time.
This collection is a visual documentary of Zappa’s last tour and a perfect companion to Zappa The Hard Way. But it also stands alone as a great collection of never before seen photos of Zappa from the rehearsals and concerts of his last tour.
