Zappa’s Sheik Yerbouti set for vinyl reissue

Frank Zappa’s 1979 double album Sheik Yerbouti has been remastered and is set to be reissued on December 11.

It’s the latest release in Zappa’s back catalogue, made possible thanks to a licensing agreement between the late musician’s family and Universal Music Enterprises.

Sheik Yerbouti will be pressed on double heavyweight 180g vinyl and follows the releases of One Size Fits All and concert film Roxy: The Movie.

A total of 16 Zappa albums were recently made available on digital formats. His widow Gail died last month.
