I found this at BestPrices.com<br>"Part 1 of this collection provides on and offstage glimpses of arcane behavior engaged in by Zappa and musicians Adrian Belew, Terry Bozzio, Roy Estrada, Ed Mann, Patrick O'Hearn, Tommy Mars and Peter Wolf. It's described as a movie about people who do stuff that is not normal. Part 2 is a guided tour through the depths of Zappa's Barfko-Swill Mail Order Company and ends with the music video "Peaches en Regalia.""

So that means it is similar to the DOES HUMOR... DVD: the old stuff in a new format. thats enough for me... New stuf should be released in new products, no?

there should be some extras!!!<br>Considering all the material recorded for the Halloween '77 show.<br><br>The problem here is ZFT is trying to do everything "on the cheap"<br><br>Frank would not approve.<br><br>That's is the first I've heard about 200 Motels on the disc. I don't think that is true.<br><br>Gail wouldn't do it.

Some info about this DVD I've found on a British web site (maybe this has already been posted):<br><br>
Quote:
FRANK ZAPPA Baby Snakes (2003 UK Region 2 PAL DVD remastered for 5.1 and Dolby Digital Stereo - The movie opens with FZ rehearsing  with his fellow band members and the rest of the film combines live  footage, primarily from the Halloween show at the Palladium in New  York City with assorted backstage material and truly amazing clay animation sequences by Bruce Bickford! Running time 150 minutes) <br>EUR 27.99 / £ 19.99

The extras are:<br><br>Original Theater Trailer<br><br>2 T.V. Spots<br><br>Roxy Trailer (in 5:1)<br><br>that's it  >:(<br><br>However, both the picture and the sound are phenom for the movie herself.  Especially the 5:1 DTS sound mix - great job Dweez - much better than the previous DVD-A release (Halloween)!<br><br>Kudos - 2 thumbs up - keep them DVD's a-comin'<br><br>

Not to mention the '74 footage from the Dub Room Special *WITHOUT* Bruce's claymation over it (or both versions is fine, but I want to see *all* of that original footage)

well its the 9th and still no DVD!!!!!!<br>i have it on pre-order with blackstar.co.uk as released on the 8th!!!(the site says "out of stock- reordered")<br><br>would be nice if the ZFT cared enough about us to give us firm release dates or even some details on new releases.(steve vai's site is great!-DVD previews, details of whats on the new releases etc, the zft should take note-this is how it should be done)<br><br>gail wont release any thing unless its is as frank wanted it, so i guess we will just have to wait!!!!<br><br>but how long does it take?<br><br><br>i just hope that 2004 will bring us more (trance fusion- fall 2003- gail lies again)<br><br>
