Here’s an excerpt:

Tony Palmer DVD confirms: “we have no fixed release date… but one thing is for sure, we have the master tapes and the urban myth that they ‘disappeared’ is untrue.”

    Pssst, Tony: you really have to fix that “Frank Zapper’s 200 Motels” byline…

    Hey, ho, let’s go! 🙂 Good news! I hope the sound will be a bit cleared, though.

    That’s sweet music to my ears (and eyes), Barry. I can finally rid myself of those lousy copies of 200 Motels I’ve been watching and replace them with a version of better resolution and greater audio quality.

    He stole the whole thing from me!

  5. Hans says:

    Rumor has it that Richard Starkey has been caught in the middle of the night trying to bury the master tapes.

    Weird…. I don’t see anything on the actual site about it!

    I still didn’t make it through this movie in one sitting.

    A perfect release would be a two-disc set; the movie and “the true story of 200 Motels” or whatever it was called. The documentary makes the movie much more watchable. I purchased both on VHS way back when. It wouldn’t ever happen. Too many lawyers involved. Gail is probably on the phone with “Dewy, Cheatum and How” right now. It’ll be five years of civil litigation before this sees the light of day. BTW, I wonder if the current massive LA forest fires are a potential threat to “The Vault”.

    Why? His monologue is the best part of the movie!

    Peace and Love, Peace and Love. Wonder if Ringo would sign this one?

    “The Vault” is a myth.

    So’s the idea of ‘ONE GOD’, but, here we are…….

    Yes, and also Keith Moon dressed as a nun playing a harp and peering manically thru the strings!
