Full Show Friday | Frank Zappa In Munich 1978

We'd like to think we've seen it all when it comes to circulating Frank Zappa video, but we were unaware of an hour of pro-shot FZ live and off-stage footage from 1978 that was aired on German TV under the title "We Don't Mess Around." The concert film/documentary was filmed during Zappa's rehearsals at Circus Krone on September 8, 1978.

In this special Frank's band finds him joined by the impressive lineup of Ike Willis, Denny Walley, Arthur Barrow, Tommy Mars, Peter Wolf, Ed Mann and Vinnie Colaiuta. BR (Bayerischer Rundfunk) filmed the band in action and interviewed Zappa for a piece that was shown on German TV in 1980 and rebroadcast in 1996. The video includes such classics as "Easy Meat," "Pound For A Brown" and "Dancing Fool." Check it out:
