Frank Zappa - 200 Motels (6 CD/2 CD/LP) - 29 October 2021
Frank Zappa’s “200 Motels” turns 50! In celebration of FZ’s famous 1971 “Surrealistic Documentary,” Zappa Records, UMe and MGM are pleased to present an extensive 7-disc box set.

Unearthed from FZ’s Vault are original demos, studio outtakes, work mixes, interviews and movie ads along with newly discovered dialog reels revealing an early audio edit of the film. This incredible set contains a replica of the movie poster, a custom motel keychain, Do-Not-Disturb motel door hanger and the original 1971 soundtrack packaging along with new liner notes from Pamela Des Barres, Ruth Underwood and Vaultmeister, Joe Travers. Also included is a first-ever Blu-ray disc featuring the movie in 1080p high-definition with its intended screen-crop-ratio for the first time along with the digital premiere of FZ’s documentary 1987 Honker Home Video VHS release “The True Story Of 200 Motels.”

Hoffman forum, Zappateers, reddit, same place you heard about it.

No other proof other than I think that this info would be hard to make up.

Looks like the info originally appeared on amazon.co.uk this morning but has since been removed.

Can't wait for this, I'm giddy as a schoolgirl!

That info hasn't been on amazon.co.uk for a while, and hasn't been there the whole time I've been checking it out, since The Idiot posted the link on Zappateers. The page was pretty messed up, but they seem to have fixed it a bit. Maybe their web developers were trying it out - but it's a very unprofessional mess. This busted tit bit bullshit really shits me off.

The info was on amazon.co.uk early yesterday morning and that's the source of the info that was cut and pasted. It was removed shortly thereafter.

I was hoping a DVD/Blu-Ray of the "200 Motels" film would be included too. It looks interesting though!

Shit. What happened to the "Blu-ray disc featuring the movie in 1080p high-definition with its intended screen-crop-ratio for the first time"?

In the heat of the moment I almost pre ordered.....
Then I remembered the extortionist freight charged by this distributor to deliver to my area.....

With sweaty palms (Plook's 1st porn star name) I will await my preferred supplier to list.....

Either the original press release was incorrect, or they aren't going to have it ready in time to release with the audio recording. That would be my guess.

Just to be clear, the original info was NOT a press release. It was info posted on amazon.co.uk that was taken down in a big hurry.

At no point did anyone connected with the ZFT state that the movie would be included. They don't own the rights to it. Never have and never will.

I wish the movie was included as well but it's not something the ZFT has control over.

That info had to come from somewhere, though--Amazon didn't just make it up. Where did it come from if not the ZFT? It is weird that even on the original description the box is first described as just "6CD" and the part about the Blu-Ray disc seems tacked onto the end.

While the box set is still an autobuy for me, not having the video content included makes it a LOT less desirable. A properly mastered version of the film (which has been screwed up one way or another on every previous release) was a big selling point, and the True Story documentary is a lot of fun, and should have been included even if the ZFT couldn't wangle rights to the film itself.

I'm not disputing that the ZFT was responsible for writing up the info. For the CD at least.

The fact is, it was never released by the ZFT, nor was it intended for the public to read. Obviously so, because amazon.co.uk yanked it within a couple of hours of it being posted and, to be best of my knowledge, no other amazon outlets or anyone else in the world posted this info at the time. Maybe some clueless nitwit at amazon.co.uk tacked that blurb about the movie onto the end. Who knows?

The ZFT NEVER promised that the movie would be included, nor did they ever indicate to the public that it would be so.

Man, I've bought every multi-disc official release as they've been coming and haven't been let down yet, but I've got to give a big Fuck No to this. $150 for six discs, plus a few chachkees and a big booklet? No thanks. Between having the '97 CDs, a UA '70s French pressing of the LP, and all the official live releases of this band, I think I'm good.

Also the fact that there's no video, but TWO discs of dialog shit that Frank didn't see fit to make it on Playground Psychotics is a letdown. Would probably bite if it was around $80-90.

At least they didn't stick in a Rance Muhammitz mask.
