Does anybody know anything about this?

From
http://www.jcrmusicnews.com/en/dvd/2085 ... e-2.html#0

"In August 1969, to the dismay of many fans, Frank Zappa disbanded the original Mothers of Invention. Feeling constrained by the musical abilities of certain members, he cleaned the slate and set about assembling a new group. Hand-picking superior talent from a variety of musical genres, by 1970 the second incarnation of the band was unleashed. This film focuses on the sophomore Mothers, looking too at the very different projects that book-ended their brief existence; Zappa had incorporated ideas from free jazz and fusion into his music to produce three eccentric albeit influential solo albums. As the new decade dawned and the musical landscape shifted this prolific but often-overlooked period in Frank Zappa's career remained a pioneering era for a modern day composer who often confounded both audiences and critics, but who refused to compromise. Includes new interviews with; George Duke, Aynsley Dunbar, Don Preston, Jeff Simmons, Mark Volman, Max Bennett, Sal Marquez, Ian Underwood plus 200 Motels director Tony Palmer, biographers Ben Watson and Billy James and Mojo Magazine's Mark Paytress."

Yeah, saw the news on this one a few weeks ago. I'm gonna guess it's not a ZFT endorsed product, seeing who's all involved in the interviews. Like the Straight To Bizarre, & Mothers In The '60s DVDs this should be interesting though, covering the Chunga's thru Roxy era.

Pretty good as most Chrome Dreams products are. A little uncomfortable with Mark Volman's use of the "rape" word in describing some of the Mothers extracurricular activities in the extras.

Not out in the UK for ages yet. I'm so desperate for this.

Lovely. I was looking at the Amazon and HMV listings. I'll buy it when I get paid. Looks like the best price too. I got the Zappa VS Beefheart boxset yesterday from HMV in Swindon. Seen both documentaries before but they're just so damn interesting I wanted to own them.

This too and Zappa in the 60's. Might as well buy that now!
