Zappa, Frank - A Token of His Extreme DVD

SKU 28-EGVS306159DVD
Amazing. This is one of the unavailable holy grails for Zappa fans, which has never been seen since its one airing in 1974. Parts of it appear on The Dub Room Syndicate DVD, but only parts. The band is amazing and the performances are amazing and the INSANE claymation by Bruce Bickford is amazing (although it does disrupt the visual flow of the concert). Nearly 75' long! Highly recommended!

"Recorded on August 27, 1974 at KCET in Hollywood, A TOKEN OF HIS EXTREME features Frank Zappa with five incredibly talented band members for this extravaganza of live music.
The line-up exists of
Frank Zappa guitar, percussion, vocals
George Duke keyboards, finger cymbals, tambourine, vocals
Napoleon Murphy Brock sax, vocals
Ruth Underwood percussion
Tom Fowler bass
Chester Thompson drums

FZ: "This was put together with my own money and my own time and it's been offered to television networks and to syndication and it has been steadfastly rejected by the American television industry. It has been shown in primetime in France and Switzerland, with marvelous results. It's probably one of the finest pieces of video work that any human being has ever done. I did it myself. And the animation that you're gonna see in this was done by a guy named Bruce Bickford, and I hope he is watching the show, because it's probably the first time that a lot of people in America got a chance to see it." - FZ appearing on the Mike Douglas Show, 1976

Because Token has never been commercially released until now, it is one of the most sought after Frank Zappa programs."
