Several years ago I saw a concert on TV that was a tribute to FZ with alot of his old band members. I wish I could remember the name of it so I could find out if a DVD exists. Anyone know what I'm talking about? It may have been on a PBS channel.

It was called Zappa's Universe. No DVD released, but the album and the video might still be out there.

I'll check into these. Thanks for the leads. I should also add that the concert was made after Frank had passed away and if I recall it had Dweezil playing in it too.

Relax friend. It's just that the the ZFT is not, shall we say, current with their release promises. My comment had nothing to do with you. It's just that there have been so many promises made about various releases in the past few years, and most of them haven't panned out.

No offense intended. :)

Sorry, I jumped the gun on that one. I've been having a pretty stressful day and I took it out on you. Again, sorry about that. You've been a help and I appreciate it.

The ZFT doesn't even own the rights to Zappa's Universe. Polygram does.

It's nice, but certainly not worth what those Ebay prices are.
