I am a devoted Zappa fan (as most of us Zappa fans are), and this is the only DVD I have of the master, and I must say I adore it.
However, you must know what you're getting here. This is the '86 band, not the Mothers, so those of you expecting the older zappa stuff look elsewhere. This DVD focuses on Zappa's humourous and shocking (critical) side, so the main focus here is on the show itself, with Thunes and Ray White and pretty much everyone else goofing around a lot and having a fun time...and this is transmitted to the viewer, this video is just incredibly fun to watch!
Performances are still amazing though, and you get a couple of solos from Zappa (he's mostly in his conducting role throughtout the show), which are again fantastic.
Packaging is not great, but I don't really mind, it's the music that's important in the end.
Sound and image quality are not superb (nothing to rant about either), and the DVD falls bit short, more songs (or complete songs) could have been included and have the interviews intermixed in the show as a separate extra.
Still this is an amazing video which I must have watched about 50 times and I still haven't grown tired of "and I'm not kidding..." ;) so go buy this!!
