200 Motels is a 1971 American-British musical surrealist film cowritten by Frank Zappa and Tony Palmer and starring The Mothers of Invention, Theodore Bikel and Ringo Starr. A soundtrack album was released in the same year, with a slightly different selection of music.
The 200 Motels soundtrack to Frank Zappa's film 200 Motels was released by United Artists Records in 1971. Like the film, the album covers a loose storyline about The Mothers of Invention going crazy in the small town of Centerville and bassist Jeff quitting the group, as did his real life counterpart, Jeff Simmons, who left the group before the film began shooting and was replaced by actor Martin Lickert for the film.
Filming was abandoned partway through, and the music was issued as an album that made some sense of a rather random story. The story develops Zappa's own ambitions as a classical composer in the vein of Edgard Varèse, but also twits them, and the overall tone is satirical; Zappa (played here by Jeff Taylor) is himself a character in the story. 200 Motels: The Suites~Overture.
