Im always wary, as a UK resident, I could only play Region 2 discs, until I got a multi region player that is, I got sick of waiting that extra month for the Euro releases...

You can buy Baby Snakes in the dutch stores, also at the Free Record Shop so why buy it at zappa.com?

At least the VHS v Betamax issue was due to competing technologies. <br><br>I have to say I do not understand why the ZFT made the DVD Region 1. There are Zappa fans all over the world, and a lot of places do not have stores which carry Zappa stuff. It would have made much more sense to make the DVD region free. <br><br>Maybe they'll do this for future releases ???
