Tony Palmer's previous DVD release of 200 Motels was badly cropped garbage with a clueless audio commentary. The CD tracklist is identical to the Ryko release. I would avoid any product where Palmer's name is listed equally with FZ's.

I'd love an upgraded version, but I am hesitant to pre-order anything from Tony Palmer. I fell for the "restored from original sources" line the first time he released, Tony Palmer's Film of Frank Zappa's 200 Motels in 2010.

From what I gather, the no-longer-available on-demand DVD-R is the one to own. For a physical copy.

The MGM MOD DVD is the only release of this movie worth owning. You beat me to it by a minute!

Jinx!

Yea...I saw a wee bit of the new August 2018 "official" DVD. Without getting deep into comparison, it just looked "off" to me. Picture quality. Not even getting into cropping. That the on-demand and the dvd are not the same is yet another mystery of the problematic history.

BIG Question: lots of folks say the Turner broadcast is THE one, less cropping. Picture crisp. But that does not reflect what Frank released into the theaters. It is MORE image (top/bottom?) then one deserves. And it doesn't look like a film. Looks more video. Is that clear?

Is the soundtrack CD being cleaned up for this release? If not I'm passing on this.

LOL @ the people here and on other music forums who think this is an exciting new official release. Tony Palmer is a scuzzbag.

Are you reading the same thread as the rest of us....? No-one here thinks this is an exciting new official release...it's just a release that might be worth having if you, say, collect FZ stuff...or like the film...or the music... or some weird shit like that... Wink

If you collect all FZ product, no matter the source or quality and need the box and posters, then get this one.

If you are a fan of the music and the movie, there are better versions out there and avoid this like the plague.
