This Special Edition 3DVD set brings together three programmes by Frank Zappa. Baby Snakes premiered in New York City on 21 December 1979. The film combines live footage, primarily from the Halloween show at the Palladium in New York City, with assorted backstage material and truly amazing clay animation sequences by Bruce Bickford. The Dub Room Special is a documentary that features material from Zappa s 1981 Halloween show at New York s Palladium and from KCET Studios in December 1974 for the TV special "A Token Of His Extreme," again paired with the animation of Bruce Bickford. The Torture Never Stops is the most complete version available of the 1981 Halloween show. All Frank Zappa shows were unique experiences with Zappa on guitar and baton, leading his band on flights of improvisation and drawing ever more intense performances from them.

I bought this for the "Torture Never Stops" concert disk, but both of the others are good viewing too. "Baby Snakes" has footage of a much smaller concert, which is far more manic and 'out there' than "Torture". "Dub Room Special" features more footage from the same concerts and has more studio content. All bear the unmistakeable Zappa quality and I'd recommend these for fans and newcomers alike. "The Torture Never Stops" is seminal Zappa for sure!

Everything you'd expect from Frank Zappa - and more! Thoroughly enjoyed this DVD & got my friends round to join in the repeat experience!

A great set and excellent value for money. I just wish that Frank played his guitar more in the concert sections of each film.

WORTH THE WAIT!! 5 Dec 2013

I waited on line, freezing cold December in NYC on opening night to see the first public show. I have waited almost 35 years to own my very own copy. It really captures FZ's Halloween shows. Awesome musicians and claymation.
