"Shark Gathering In Post Industrial Bad Doberan".
That was the title of the 2012 Zappanale expo, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Frank Zappa's "The Yellow Shark".

By popular demand, or maybe just to please the freaks, the Dieter / Robert team produced a set of three DVD(R)s with the highlights of the 2012 expo.
Not to be missed is the "Exhibition Review", a 20-minute special mixed with concert fragments of Fried Dähn, The Yellow Snow Crystals, George Duke & Jean-Luc Ponty, all playing the music of Frank Zappa. Or the complete concert that Fried Dähn & The Yellow String Quartet did at the expo hall on 2012/08/03.
But the most impressive part is the 40-minute "The Lost Episodes Phase II": Frank Zappa, The Ensemble Modern & L.Shankar rehearsing in L.A., a private movie by the late Wolfgang Stryi.
