Description

    Frank Zappa Annotated 200 Motels Score. "Touring makes you crazy," Frank Zappa said of the inspiration for the 1971 movie 200 Motels. The movie had a $600,000 budget, seven-day shoot, and an eleven-day post-production period, all of which helped capture the sort of chaos Zappa and the Mothers of Invention wanted to depict. Most of the musical soundtrack for this film was recorded live as the film was shot and, like the movie, the double-album soundtrack LP was completed in about a week. This lot consists of a large (13" x 19.5") comb-bound soft-covered orchestral score of approximately sixty-six pages (377 bars), heavily annotated. This is the suite for the "I Have Seen the Pleated Gazelle" sequence in the film, a suite of five orchestra l/ choral pieces that is considered one of the highlights of Zappa's career. In Excellent condition.
