Frank Zappa's New York Halloween 1981 concerts were filmed live at The Palladium. This "thing" entitled THE TORTURE NEVER STOPS was created in it's entirety by Frank Zappa from the original concert production and intended by the artists 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 billion and a half airings by MTV of the concerts 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. All Frank Zappa shows were unique experiences with Zappa on guitar and baton, leading his band on flights of improvisation and drawing ever more intense performances from them. THE TORTURE NEVER STOPS cements Zappa's reputation as one of the most innovative and challenging composers and performers of the 20th century.
