Bigger Versions:

Frank Zappa's 200 Motels [c. 1971/United Artists], slightly re-edited by yours truly.

The intention is to put the cartoon segment where it belongs: before the finale. Other scenes have been reordered to accommodate this change.

Sources For This Fan Edit Include: Screen-captures of the new transfer
available on Amazon Instant Video, audio from said transfer, footage from VPRO
documentaries made during the film's production, audio from the soundtrack album,
audio from a rare 1975 bootleg, and audio from said VPRO documentaries.

Everything has been sped-up or down to it's original performance speed!
US Theatrical WIdescreen Standard of 1.85:1 used.

If there's a way I can get ahold of the new transfer I bought on Amazon Instant Video without the use of screengrabs, which I will be researching on off-time, I'll redo this immediately! Having a consistent frame-rate throughout is something I can only dream of at this stage, lol!

This is a presentation edit, not a restoration. That should be made vitally clear. I'm trying to present the film in a better light for the sake of the music.

It's now on YouTube!
Along with the short featurette made during it's production:

A DVD of it has been prepared but I'll save that for when I can go at this again.

Screw that laserdisc I say, these colours don't make your eyes bleed! At least I don't think, xD

"What do I need to paint that particular place? Outside the boundaries of the human race. To that field of people that I want to know. And yet reality says so firmly, no, woah, woah."
