Yep, me too, I think all of them were signed at the time.

I e-mailed him to thank him and mentioned that the quality was far superior to a crappy VHS boot that I had at the time. My e-mail and many others can still be found at his website:

He responded with (way back on July 31, 2007):

Thanks for your much appreciated email. The bootleg copy must have been copied years ago when I was sending out the VHS to people while trying to get rights from the Zappa family and those who professed to help me. I finally got the nerve to release it myself and have gotten several emails like yours. I'm glad to release my copy for you to see for both myself and for Frank who would never want our footage to be seen in anything but the way we shot it.

His loyal videographer sent me this wonderful breakdown of my film which I thought you might enjoy as an added bonus.

I wanted to pick up a copy of Ed's film in 2007, but couldn't afford it at the time. This thread reminded me about it, and I was glad to find he's still active online. I contacted him through his website last week and was able to order a copy directly.
