Zappa DVD set for release

Zappa

A DVD documenting the recording of Frank Zappa’s classic albums
‘Over-Nite Sensation’ and ‘Apostrophe’ is set to be released next month. The film will be going behind-the-scenes at each album’s recording session and the 98-minute documentary gives a rare insight into the psychedelic icon who died in 1993.

The Zappa family opened the doors to his UMRK studio and the vault for the archive materials which feature rarely seen performances including his Saturday Night Live television appearance in 1976.

The DVD also features interviews with wife Gail, children Moon, Dweezil and Ahmet, and friends and colleagues including rocker Alice Cooper.

‘Frank Zappa CA Apostrophe/Over-Nite Sensation’ is released May 1.

    Mid 70s Saturday Night Live + Zappa: that’s a potent combo fer sure. Does Belushi take a sax solo?

    Here’s hoping the Zappa vaults remain open for some time; I remember DJ Shadow describing some psyche-era film of The Mothers playing to a buncha acid-fried hippies at the Filmore or somewhere, sounded der coolest but I’ve never been able to track it down.

    Very cool site, by the way. Anna Waits pointed me in your direction – I’m her big bro – and I’m not disapointed.
