To me absurdity is the only realityFrank Zappa (1940-1993)

The late, perpetually great Frank Zappa is remembered as a singer, guitarist, composer, and a free-thinking performer who did what he wanted, said what he meant, about anyone or anything. Many ignorant types think of him as the guy who just wrote funny songs. His visceral, “in the moment” guitar solos that he played onstage were otherworldly. Just ask Steve Vai, a Zappa protégé, not to mention a myriad of other fine guitar players and appreciators of music.

The two most commercial Frank Zappa albums were Over-nite Sensation (1973) and Apostrophe (‘) (1974). Now, immortalized on an amazing 97-minute DVD, you can catch rare archive and home movie footage, live performances, photos, and interviews of Frank as well as some up to date commentary from his friends and former bandmates that tell the story of these two albums.

Reader note: the contents in this DVD are the embodiment of what Frank Zappa was about, not just a feeble documentary or “making of …” video. The live footage alone on this program is worth the trip to the store or clicking around on the Web to purchase it.

The definitive sound and lyrics of Frank Zappa are talked about by Frank’s wife, Gail, his kids Dweezil, Moon, Ahmet and Diva, as well as friends and colleagues including Steve Vai, Warren Cucurullo, Alice Cooper, even Billy Bob Thorton (mmmhm). Zappa heads and audiophiles will enjoy Dweezil’s dissection of some songs on the mixing board, isolating parts such as Tina Turner’s vocals, bringing forth the compositional brilliance and exposing the creative genius of a man who loved to make music.

In addition to the classic footage the DVD includes new performances of some classic tracks from the two albums by Zappa Plays Zappa.

Thursday, August 9th, 2007 was proclaimed Frank Zappa Day in Baltimore, MD.
