Frank Zappa - The Torture Never Stops

Frank Zappa's New York Halloween 1981 concerts were filmed Live at The Palladium. This 'thing' entitled 'The Torture Never Stops' was created in its entirety by FZ from the original concert production and intended by the Artist as one of three Television Specials. This is the longest version of the three - the others, 'You Are What You Is' and 'Dumb All Over', having actually aired.

Halloween was Frank Zappa's favorite holiday, and New York was the site of Frank Zappa Halloween concerts for years!

The many airings by MTV of the concerts (non-edited) followed on closely from the release of the double album 'You Are What You Is' in September of that year on Frank Zappa's own recently founded and thoroughly independent label, Barking Pumpkin. Much of the set list is drawn from that work.
