Phyllis Smith Altenhaus,
I am a big Zappa fan. the performance of Napoleon Murphy Brock (unbelievable talent) on Florentine Pogen and the live "room service" rap session is something that should not be missed, I have a very keen sense of music and admire musical talent from a musicians perspective, Dub Room special delivers a feeling of the live electricity that Zappa shows deliver. HIGHLY Recommended. Be assured that the Inca Roads portion of this DVD is edited to include claymation during most of the song, this is an important part of the DVD where I would have loved to see the band play. What a lineup including Chester Thompson Genesis live tour drummer, George Duke jazz Superstar Ruth Underwoods percussion contributions are also very worthy and of course little stevie vai, say no more this DVD delivers.
