    got a copy of the DVD from a friend.

    GREAT STUFF!

    some cool interview footage of Ry Cooder and how he almost lost his mind before quitting the Magic Band.

    some great 1974 live footage. (i saw the Captain in 1974/Kansas City).

    REALLY REALLY good Frank Zappa commentary.

    oh, and Jimmy Carl Black's comments:

    "Frank was good, but Beefheart was the REAL THING!"

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    not sure if its available commercially.

    Beefheart...very cool.
     
  3. I would do anything (....well, almost anything :rolleyes: ) to get my hands on that DVD. I've been dying to see this for years and haven't been able to get my hands on it.
