Zappa, Zappa And More Zappa

Frank Zappa fans have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to FZ material. And for all you Zappa aficionados out there, there are two new DVDs you need to see: Eat That Question - Frank Zappa In His Own Words, and Roxy: The Movie.

Eat That Question - Frank Zappa In His Own Words

The first movie is a collection of Zappa interviews through the years. This movie recently had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

FZ was a great interview subject. He was direct, candid and often turned questions on their head, toying with interviewers. 

Here's the trailer:

Roxy: The Movie

This concert film captured three epic nights at the Roxy Theater in Hollywood back in December 1973. Apparently there were technical issues with the filming, but modern technology and editing made it possible to finish the movie.

Zappa always had amazing musicians in his bands and this group was no exception. With George Duke on keys, Chester Thompson and Ralph Humphreys on drums and the otherworldly virtuoso Ruth Underwood on vibes, it was an incredible lineup! Not to mention Zappa himself on guitar. 

Here's the trailer:

If we had to pick just one of these movies, it would probably be Roxy: The Movie since it includes so much great music. For Zappa fans, these are two solid additions to the FZ video library.
