.. I was in Tower Records this weekend, and found FZ's "HALLOWEEN" on an audio DVD, it costs more than a CD, is there video footage on it as well?? Should I buy it???? Also, can it be played/viewed on a regular DVD player..?? I asked at the store, but the munchkin behind the counter had no idea.....what do I do...??

Halloween is basically a surround sound live FZ album.  There are two videos on it ("Suicide Chump" and "Dancing Fool"), but the rest is just 5.1 stereo Zappa that plays while a still image rests on your screen.<br><br>Alot of people have a problem with the fact that Dweezil wasn't exactly adventurous in his choice of material, but I think this DVD-A is well worth buying, if not just for the 17 minute "Black Napkins/Deathless Horsie" medley.<br><br>Oh, and yeah, it will play in any DVD player (assuming the region number matches your machine).

There is a stereo mix that will play on any player, in addition to the DVD-A 5.1 and DTS 5.1 mixes.<br><br>I am not too familiar with whats out there available on DVD-A, but some might ONLY work (not have a stereo mix) with a DVD-A player....
