YESYESYES!!
i got my pkg...at first it wouldn't play on my mac so i was convinced i'd never view it on my regular dvd...i put it in and voila!
i was mesmerized from the moment the zappateers logo appeared across the screen!
the fact that part 3 was entirely your footage from the stage still blows me away!
the fact that we spent the finale on stage still blows me away...like unruly schoolchildren andre' called us...
thanks for spending the time to get it and send it to me...i love it and it was like being there all over again 8) ...well almost :wink:
:D :D

I have that one, myself. :)
I noticed you and the debutante pop up quickly in a couple of pan-shots.
Movie stars forever more!

was 'freak out!' groundbreaking and influential? of course it was! anyone with a bit of knowledge about the music scene around the mid-to-late 60s would agree. I would put 'freak out' in the top three albums of 1966, together with dylan's 'blonde on blonde' and 'revolver' by the beatles.

and, if you listen to what fz has to say on the mofo 4-cd box, you just might get a hint of how groundbreaking and influential 'freak out' really was:

Interviewer: Well, have you heard the Beatles new, uh...

FZ: I have the new Sgt. Pepper album.

FZ: I'd like to thank them very much for doing a wonderful take-off on Freak Out! during the song about Rita the meter maid. I thought that it was very clever to have people wheezing, huffing and panting in the background with the music still going on.

FZ: Uh, they do know that we exist in Europe. The album sells well in Sweden and, um, in Holland. Not, it doesn't sell as well in, uh, England, but that's mainly the fault of the record company, because when they released it there, they just pressed it and put it on the stand without any concurrent publicity, and you have to have a certain amount of, uh, machinery to get the ball rolling. But it has been what you might call an underground success because, um, my sources inform me that most of the groups over there have a copy and listen to it regularly, faithfully. Eric Burdon from the Animals liked it very well, he performs, uh, several of the songs from the first album with his group. And The Who were interested in "Who Are the Brain Police?" for a single, I was told.


Lumpy: Can you tell me the source of this interview? Which publication was it in and what was the date of publication? Thanks.
