Mindblowing Zappa studio footage with The Ikettes

A mix between the 1973 Mothers at The Roxy stage and a studio rehearsal.
How incredible to see them rehearse. So much fun and musical talent. The back up vocalists Debbie and Lynn. (Debbie Wilson and Linda Sims of The Ikettes). Frank, in his best mood...

This is a hidden bonus track on the brand new Roxy The Movie. Highly recommended DVD!
