Next Week in Music | Dec. 5-11 • The Long List: 220 Releases On The Way

All the music heading for your playlist in the coming days. And plenty more besides.


Life is full of coincidences. Case in point: Frank Zappa died of cancer on Dec. 4, 1993 — 22 years to the day after the Montreux Casino burned down when a fan shot off a flare gun during a gig by The Mothers Of Invention. That event, as you probably know, inspired Deep Purple’s biggest hit Smoke On The Water. Four years after it was released, Deep Purple guitarist Tommy Bolin died of a drug overdose — on Dec. 4, 1976. Weird, huh? Anyway, while you listen to your Zappa / Mothers / Purple / Bolin playlist, check out the 200 albums, EPs, singles, box sets, compilations, anthologies, retrospectives, soundtracks, vinyl reissues and cassettes arriving next week:
