In October of 1977, Frank Zappa played six shows across four nights at the Palladium in New York. The entire residency, which was chronicled in the concert film Baby Snakes, will be released on Oct. 20 as Halloween 77, in a box set that includes a Frank Zappa costume.

The 158 tracks, which were re-mixed last year from the original masters, will be housed in a USB flash drive shaped like a "Zappa's Oh Punky!" candy bar in 24-bit WAV format. There is also a 28-page digital booklet with photos and liner notes from co-producer Joe Travers, musicians Adrian Belew and Ed Mann, tour manager Phil Kaufman and famous fan Janet “The Planet” Walley.

“This box set was a very special experience for me to work on,” said Ahmet Zappa in a press release. “I wanted to make sure we honored these legendary shows, so it was important to me that this box set felt of the era. It was a blast working with our partners to create the late ‘70s-inspired Frank Zappa mask and costume and the candy-shaped USB stick filled with tons of Zappa goodness. It was yet again a labor of love gathering up all the archival materials, reading notes by people who were there, and most importantly making sure the audio was up to par. All of us at Zappa Records are mighty pleased with it, and hope that fans of Frank Zappa and of Halloween will be too.”

The entire set can pre-ordered here. On Oct. 20, all six concerts will be available for purchase as a digital download. The only physical CDs that will be available is the three-CD Halloween show, which can also be pre-ordered here. That same day, Zappa's 1976 album Zoot Allures will be released on 180-gram vinyl.
