Phyllis Smith Altenhaus,
This is a three hour,two tape set of a Frank Zappa concert in 1977 and there is just a lot of fun here. Not for every taste but any real music fan should find this inspired to say the least. There are many scenes of Bill Bickford's clay animation and it is truly incredible. That alone is worth seeking out the original uncut version,not the newer edited 90 minute version because it puts all other claymation to shame. If your not a Zappa fan,take it with a big grain of salt. If you are,you don't want to miss this. It's a lot better than "200 Motels". Enjoy!
