How about a thread discussing the ROXY performances DVD/CD/theatrical release?<br><br>Does anyone out there (admin.?) know the REAL DEAL regarding the ROXY DVD situation? And what about all the other Honker videos, when will these make it to DVD format? Is this going to be a "Vaulternative" effort or will they be released by another company?<br><br>-Studebaker Hawk<br>(PS: let me put my "vote" in again- I would like to see a DVD RELEASE. Theatrical would be nice but if I could have it my way I'd have a DVD in my hands ASAP. -SH)<br><br>

The Roxy series definately needs releasing on DVD. There's not much hope for a theatre release over here!!!<br><br>I live in a sllepy old part of England and saw an awesome performance by a Zappa tribute band last night - the Muffin Men. A small art/music venue but it was packed. There are Zappa fans over here, they sometimes need to come out of the closet. Or should I say 'go into the closet'.....

[quote author=Lobster Man link=board=wishList;num=1030027234;start=0#10 date=02/20/04 at 18:48:35]We've been through this: It's not ready yet.<br><br>FZ's stereo mix of the music has probably been linked up to the video of the concert, but they still have to remix the audio into 5.1 and link that up to the video of the concert, all the while spending a great deal of Gail Zappa's money trying to put this together in order to put out a DVD with a $24.99 retail price ...<br><br>huffapuffapuffahuffapuffa.<br><br>Did anyone read that?[/quote]<br><br>REALLY?  Do you really think that *all of this time* that they've been diligently at work on putting this out?  When was this project started?  Yes, I certainly agree that it is "not ready yet" but I don't think that's due to the fact that they've been working on it - I would imagine it's due to the fact that they're NOT working on it.  <br><br>Or better yet:<br><br>They don't do no good <br>They never be workin' <br>When they oughta should <br>They waste your time <br>They're wastin' mine <br><br> :P
