I played this album recently for the first time in ages and it went down really well. Both discs are excellent throughout, theres no real low spots on this at all. Makes me want to watch the movie again, but before I can do that I need to get a new video player, as mine busted!!!.....As soon as thats done though, Im gonna re aquaint myself with Motels, Uncle Meat, Bickford and DHBIM!!!..........Till then I guess Ill have to console myself with the BBSNX DVD...

Every time I listen to this album I find something new (usually a new brilliant melodic passage).<br><br>

Anytime I listen to 200 Motels I get the Tuna Sandwhich medley stuck in my head for at least a week.

No problem man. Albums that you havent heard for a while always go down great when a song from them just pops into your head reminding you that you havent heard it in ages, rather than endlessly scanning your CD collection thinking "What shall I put on?"

Sweet. <br><br>What a great album and film. "I'm stealing the room! I'm STEALING THE ROOM" and "Magic Fingers" are personal hilights for me.<br><br>I'm a big Who fan too so its fun to see Keith Moon dressed as a nun cop a cheap feel off Ms. Lucy.

Shareza, cool is that like a bit torrent?<br><br>I'm on EZ Tree. I just got a real rare Who bootleg the other day. Someone has found their 1964 audition tape for EMI, a label from which they were steadfastly rejected.
