Today i found the DVD "Derailroaded" in the Zappa-shelf of my local "hardware"-store. Now i ask myself if it is really worth to buy it. I can guess that the photo with FZ on the front is a promise, that probably won t be kept. How much Zappa is on the disc? Shall i buy it? German amazon has two very friendly reviews (considering Fischer as interesing figure in the first way). Does anybody here know this one and can describe it a little bit? If there was some comprehensive original footage from the Zappa/Fischer collaboration at the time of his first album, this could maybe convince me to buy the disc. If there were only a few sentences by Zappa to be found (like: "he has something to say...") i think, i can live without it. :?:

It's a real good documentary. Not a ton of Frank footage, but some. Frank is an important part of the story though. A recent interview with Gail is in it too.

It is excellent, sad and interesting.
You'll want to watch it more than once.
There is some footage of Zappa, but there is plenty about his relationship with Fisher and an interesting anecdote by Dr. Demento.
