Following the 2010 Voiceprint UK DVD reissue of Tony Palmer's Film Of Frank Zappa's 200 Motels comes a new PledgeMusic 2CD & 2DVD box set with extras & exclusives (but no bells and whistles). Proceed with caution.

Good advice.

"This is for the first time these masters have ever being used." Well that certainly inspires confidence.

I am interested in it for the DVD of supposed concert footage and was the 2010 DVD release up to par?

The 2010 version was a disgrace, a real botch job, and it also claimed to be "restored from the original sources."

...and Palmer has admitted:

Quote:
Briefly, the source material we will be using for the new DVD will be more or less the same as we used before (see below).
...
So we've used the same source material, in spite of the tape being in increasingly poor condition.
But the technology has improved hugely in the last few years, so we are confident the end result will look better.


So the claim of using original masters for the first time is a flat-out lie.
