Description:

In 1968 Frank Zappa set up the Bizarre and Straight labels.

Includes rare footage, archive interviews and of course the music that made it all worthwhile.

Press:

“Ultimately, ironically, and perversely, From Bizarre to Straight strips away the commercial veneer erected even by Frank and is subversively factual, a demon's delight in a world of gushing fanboyisms.”
     —Acoustic Music (.com)

“This fascinating documentary is a must-see for anyone who appreciates music history.”
     —Daily News

“The whole story of Bizarre/Straight and the events of those years is pretty incredible. From Straight To Bizarre is probably something of a must for Zappa-philes, for the live footage alone. It is hard to believe that a lot of this stuff went on, but it did. The DVD is well worth checking out.”
