Fantastic stuff!!!
20 December 2003 | by Gore-HoundSee all my reviews

I am so glad this movie was finally released on DVD. My VHS copy was starting to wear out. This movie is a must for any Zappa fan. Thoroughly enjoyable, every minute of it. The claymation is unbelievable. The concert footage is amazing. The backstage antics are hilarious. And, Frank Zappa was a brilliant guitar player.
