A 60-minute program of Frank Zappa in Stockholm in 1973, Talking Heads in Rome 1980 and The Kinks on BBC 1972 and on Rockpalast 1982.

TALKING HEADS—Rome, Italy, 1980
From the short-lived Adrian Belew (Frank Zappa, King Crimson, David Bowie) era –assisting on backing guitar and vocals – comes this rare Italian TV broadcast.  Witness the Talking Heads from one of their most definitive tours – Remain in Light.  This film was recently re-broadcast on Italian TV and is likely the best unofficial Talking Heads film anywhere.  Professionally filmed.
FRANK ZAPPA—August 23, 1973, Stockholm Sweden
Behold Frank Zappa and the Mothers live in Stockholm in the freezing Scandinavian weather!  This concert was televised as part of a Swedish series of concert broadcasts embarrassingly titled Oppåpoppa ("Get Up And Pop!").  The picture and sound are second-to-none.  The line-up includes Frank, Jean-Luc Ponty, George Duke, Ian Underwood, Ruth Underwood, Bruce Fowler, Tom Fowler and Ralph Humphrey.
THE KINKS—BBC Television, 1972  
The ever-clever, cheeky Kinks make their debut in this classic 1972 BBC TV
performance in London.  A rare and intimate hour spent in the glory days!  Bonus: STORYTELLERS--featuring Ray Davies.  See The Kinks founder chatting up how their best songs came to be in a solo acoustic environment.
