Over-nite sensation by Frank Zappa( Recording )

10 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in English and German and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over Nite Sensation" quizás sea su disco mas completo. El disco (1973) anunciaba trozos de jazz, letras lascivas y ritmos irresistibles. La banda ejecutaba en directo una extraordinaria combinación de swing con bases de jazz y un rock sonoro y rico en matices que probablemente solo Frank (por su interes en la múcia clásica moderna) podía conseguir

Frank Zappa's 200 motels by Frank Zappa( Visual )

8 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in English and French and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A psychedelic precursor to music videos, in which Zappa's Mothers of Invention wreak havoc in Centerville, an obnoxiously stereotypical American town. The first color movie made on videotape and then transferred to film, 200 Motels attempts to present the sometimes inspired life of a rock 'n roll band in search of money, groupies and cheeseburgers. When the film is inspired, one gets a glimpse of the convoluted terrain of Zappa's mind; when it is not, moments can drag, but one must admit that only Frank Zappa could make such a film, let alone release it. A bemused Ringo Starr does not so much steal the film as temporarily rescuscitate it
