50th Anniversary 180g Vinyl 2LP Reissue Newly Remastered by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and Pressed at Optimal in Germany; All Original Packaging including Booklet and Poster

200 Motels turns 50! In celebration of Frank Zappa's famous 1971 "Surrealistic Documentary," Zappa Records, UMe and MGM are pleased to present the original soundtrack, a double album set featuring all original packaging including the booklet and poster and brand new remastering by legend Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Pressed on 180g vinyl by Optimal Media in Germany.

Released in October 1971, 200 Motels was a miraculous feat, a cinematic collision of the venerated musician and composer's kaleidoscopic musical and visual worlds that brought together Zappa and his band, The Mothers, Ringo Starr as Zappa – as "a large dwarf" – Keith Moon as a perverted nun, Pamela Des Barres in her acting debut, noted thespian Theodore Bikel, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and an incredible assortment of characters (both on screen and off) for a "surrealistic documentary" about the bizarre life of a touring musician.

A heady, psychedelic stew of low and high brow art forms, the film, written by Zappa and co-directed by him and Tony Palmer, mixed together irreverent comedic skits, madcap satire, eye-popping animation and virtuosic on-screen musical performances from both The Mothers and the RPO for a fascinating and free-wheeling multimedia extravaganza. Shot in just 10 days with a budget of around $650,000 from distributor United Artists, 200 Motels was one of the first movies to be filmed entirely on videotape and Zappa and crew pushed the envelope of the burgeoning new medium's possibilities, mostly notably through its use of spectacular – and at the time – state-of-the-art visual effects.
