Frank Zappa in the Year 1973

1973 is one of Frank Zappa's busiest years.

Think about it : in one year, he records three albums, releases one and plays seventy-seven concerts throughout the world.

From March till the end of May, he is at Bolic Sound in Inglewood and Whitney Studios in Glendale to complete his seventeenth studio album "Over-Nite Sensation" (to be released in September) and to tape parts of his solo project "Apostrophe."
