Roxy & Elsewhere is a double live album by Frank Zappa and The Mothers, released in September 1974. Most of the songs were recorded on December 8, 9 and 10, 1973 at The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, California.

After his affair with jazz fusion (Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo, both released in 1972), Frank Zappa came back in late 1973 with an album of simple rock songs, Over-Nite Sensation. But the temptation for more challenging material was not long to resurface and, after a transitional LP (Apostrophe, early 1974), he unleashed a double LP (reissued on one CD) of his most complex music, creating a bridge between his comedy rock stylings and Canterbury-style progressive rock. Three-quarters of the album was recorded live at the Roxy in Hollywood and extensively overdubbed in the studio later.

Most of the material in this double set was recorded Dec. 10, 11 & 12, 1973, at the Roxy, Hollywood. Other portions were extracted from road tapes of show Mothers Day, 1974, at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago and the recent gymnasium extravaganza at Edinboro State College, Edinboro, Pennsylvania, May 8, 1974.

Frank Zappa Roxy & Elsewhere US CD album. This mostly live set features Zappa performing with the popular Mothers of Invention line-up of the early 70's-including jazz-funk meister George Duke, Napolean Murphy Brock on saxophone, and Ruth Underwood on percussion.

The band remains the same: George Duke, Napoleon Murphy Brock, Chester Thompson, Tom Fowler, and Ruth Underwood. An essential third-period Zappa album.
