Customer Review

on 30 March 2013
The "dub room" and backstage interludes between songs are not as entertaining as Frank thought they were. And the imposition of sound effects on the animated sequences - cutting in on the actual music - is an annoyance.

But this is still worth having - even though both the 1974 and 1981 concerts are available separately (or will be, soon after this review is published). It contains two songs from each concert that don't turn up on the companion volume.

1981 Band: "Cocaine Decisions" and "Nig Biz" (with a particularly great Ray White guitar break [and vocal, of course}) do not appear on the "The Torture Never Stops" DVD.

1974 Band: "Approximate" (complete with "danced" interlude and a glimpse of the sheet music) and "Cosmik Debris" (the version with the iconic NMB solo) do not appear on the "A Token Of My Extreme" DVD.

And the "Valley Girl Documentary" is a not-unamusing snapshot of the time (and it says more than it intends to about the gap between how the Zappa family presented themselves, and what life was really like in their Mulholland Drive fortress).
