SPB Publishing:

The first installment in what might be an ongoing series (FRANK ZAPPA IN THE STUDIO), A FREAK OUT IN THE MAKING details the story of Frank Zappa's debut album Freak Out!. An innovative release, it was rock's first concept album as well as being the first double album of original material in the history of rock and roll. In this book, Scott Parker delves into the creation of Zappa's first masterpiece, chronicling the true story of how it came to be such a powerful opening statement from a true musical genius.
