Frank Zappa’s ‘Beat the Boots’ – on iTunes

A huge collection of Frank Zappa’s music is being made available through iTunes to mark the worldwide Independence Day celebration of indie music. The collection includes many out of print tracks.
The Zappa Family Trust is making Zappa’s 148-track long ‘Beat the Boots’ series available online – the only authorised Zappa catalogue to be made available on iTunes. The collection comprises a huge host of tracks that were originally distributed illegally by music bootleggers, so Zappa fought back with an official release.
TuneCore handled getting the music into iTunes, because the Zappa Family Trust saw the service as the fastest and easiest way to achieve the task with no loss of rights or royalties.
