Frank Zappa and Tony Palmer’s 1971 film 200 Motels is to be released as a box set later this year.
The film has been remastered from Palmer’s original 2-inch masters and will be presented on 2DVD, with the second disc containing a collection of bonus material.
Also included in the box set will be a CD containing the soundtrack, a 36-page A4 full colour book with a specially written essay by Palmer, an A3 reproduction poster, promotional materials, lobby cards and a 200 Motels door hanger and each set will be signed by Palmer and individually numbered.
The film will also be released on 2DVD, 2CD, and in a variety of bundles.
The surrealist film attempts to capture the craziness of life on the road as a rock musician and stars Zappa, The Mothers of Invention, and artists including Ringo Starr and Keith Moon.
