Ok Ok, I've been gone for a long time, & asked this in another forum before, so I thought i'd try here to see if I get better results, or ANY?!!<br><br> So can ANYONE tell me WHEN we'll get to buy the "Roxy" dvd that looks so incredible & will be So Lenghty(since it's more than 1 gig FZ & The Band payed there) since the "Baby Snakes" dvd had such a great trailer for the "Roxy" gigs on it???<br><br> I mean the "Baby Snakes" dvd's trailer for the Roxy material made it seem like it's release was IMMINENT! So where is this??<br><br> Ever since I bought the great vhs of "The Dub Room Special" way back when Frank was still alive & running the stuff released from "The Vault", i've been fascinated wanting to see more from this great band! And while I saw FZ & his various bands in MANY incarnations, & I love them all, I always felt the band that performed at the Roxy(but include Ralph Humphrey on drums too)was my fave, & I was lucky enuff to see that band here in 1973!<br><br>So can ANYONE pls inform me about this? I mean with all due respect to Gail(I know it's not easy sweetie)<br>she just doesn't run this thing with the efficiency that Frank did, & therefore we must wait intolerable ammounts of time between releases! ???<br><br>I need my Roxy fix dammit, so pls, pls someone tell me this dvd will be released soon?? ::)<br><br>Btw, (i'm sure i'm not alone on this)I want ALL the old video's that used to be availble on vhs released on dvd, as I didn't get a few titles(way back then) because of money! Now; the release of the "BS" dvd was a great start, & so was the release of "Does Humor Belong In Music" on dvd(altho I always thought that was edited way too much & was my least fave FZ vid, because THAT WAS A GREAT LIVE CONCERT!)but I need the "ROXY"-"The Real Story of 200 Motels"-"The Burnt Weenie Sandwich"-"The Video From Hell" & "Uncle Meat" released on dvd!! <br><br>So, PLEASE, everyone who agrees with me on this, lets somehow do what we can to get these wonderful & historical events released on dvd asap! :( >:(  Thanks.

So, in other words nobody really knows, plus the fact that you already posted this subject before with the same results. We are all waiting for it. :o

It won't be released soon, but it will be released. You'll just have to be patient.
