I am really looking for answers from ZFT. I am a religious consumer of all things Zappa and when I bought the Baby Snakes DVD so many years ago when it was first released, it contained a trailor for the Roxy DVD. I know everyone is always looking for this and this post is nothing new, but maybe if we innundate the ZFT with this one specific question/demand, we'll at least get answers.

The "high cost" answer is common, but I am looking for a little more explaination. It seems like everyone in the Zappa Universe is waiting for this, and they could probably charge 100 bucks and we'd still all buy it.

I am sure I will get lots of responses like "No shit Sherlock" and I'll probably be talked down to by Mr. Wonderful Trendmonger, so save it. What I really want is an answer from someone who is truely in the know. No speculations.

Thanks to anyone who can help

that andthe trailor on the baby snakes dvd were teases..... it's not fair to the fans to say they have parts done and to expect release with no official release set.

the montana/dupree's paradice footage is great, but finish this thing already... i am foaming at the mouth

Well, at least that means it's still on their radar and it hasn't been put aside so that's good news. But I can understand everyone's impatience. It's beeen years since we all first saw that teaser and I've been dying to see the whole thing too.

I trust the ZFT to put it out when it (and they) are ready.

24 months. that's 2 years, people. whatever the reason for the delay, it had better be good. like gail said, however, frank would say this or that is coming out and you would'nt see it (if at all) for several years. how long did it take for uncle meat to come out? i'm still tired of being told to wait and wait. she does say there will be a dvd release by the end of the year (hopefully). she won't say what, but i understand why-- because of places like youtube and zappateers(even though i love these sites)it'd be out there before the release date. it won't be roxy, but maybe 200 motels (with making of as a second disc?) or the aforementioned uncle meat. whatever it is, i'm interested. good interview, though.

yeah, if it's gonna take another 2 years, it had better be a 3 disc extravaganza!!! they could put the sweden 1973 concert on another disc or something.

nice interview, he asked all the questions i would like to have asked!
