Quote:
From SOCIETY PAGES, issue #7, page 17,<br>interview with FZ by Simms & Rob Samler 1/12/91:

DEN SIMMS: Will we ever get to see some of the film that was made at the Roxy in '73?

FZ: Not unless I get to be very, very, very, very rich, and have an awful lot of spare time. All the film has been transferred to video, but none of the audio has been synchronized to it. Before you can edit it, it all has to be synchronized, and that's a pretty time-consuming and expensive process. Video editing costs a lot of money, and I don't have any of the equipment here at the house, so I always have to rely on someone else's studio, and it runs about six hundred to seven hundred dollars an hour.

Wait at least one or two years (if we're lucky) to be blown away.

Where do you get 5 years from Isaac? Its been 30 yearas since the shows, and didn't one of the 80s videos have a trailor for the Roxy shows too? If that's the case its more like about 16 years.

ON the TRUE STORY OF 200 MOTELS you can see footage of ROXY with the sound and video all synced up.<br>  I bought the video when Barfko released it ...maybe 1988?

The Roxy trailer that was previously offered on this website and later on the Baby Snakes DVD was produced in 1999. It's been five years since anyone seriously thought about trying to put this out. Zappa didn't have enough money to do it in the late 1980s.
