Unreleased, demos & weird stuff
Part two: 1980 - 1993


GO TO PART ONE

Here are listed all the video (with live audio) and audio materials that contain live or studio FZ performances not officially released and not fitting in the regular shows listing. Of course are only listed materials with unreleased music in it and not interviews, show footage without audio etc. Promos for albums, movies and shows are not listed. Tv and radio broadcasts from a single specific show are listed in the regular tour listings.
Even if not always easy due to the nature of most of these materials, I've tried to follow a chronological order.

Main sources: FZShows Unreleased, radio, and weird stuff, Román García Albertos' chronology and Videography, the zappa patio's son of the alt.fan.frank-zappa Bootleg FAQ, Jon Naurin and my own trading lists, what is appeared in the tracker itself, etcetera.
If you think there's something that should be included in this list, please send me a PM.

1985 - 1993
From these years there are some irregular official releases that contain material not available elsewhere:

Also note that the "Trance-Fusion pre-release" is not listed because no real difference has been reported with the official release. As you know there are still unreleased in the vault at least two complete FZ compiled albums from 1991-1993: Dance Me This (mostly synclavier) and Varčse: The Rage And The Fury (Ensemble Modern plays Varčse, produced by FZ). Unlike Trance-Fusion they do not circulate amongst traders. Some samples of the Varčse album were available at Zappa.Com, but the page is no more there.
