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.

The soundtrack to Frank Zappa's strange early-'70s film 200 Motels was always doomed to be a peripheral entry in his discography. The movie's story was not easy to follow, and neither is the record (not that plot was ever a big focus of the production). It's typically wacky Zappa of the era, with unpredictable sharp turns between crunchy rock bombast, orchestration, and jazz/classical influences, as well as interjections of wacky spoken dialogue

The album is mared by bad sound production and some of Zappa�s more generic orchestral arrangements, but on the positive side some of his best hard rock songs are also on this album. This is recorded in the Flo & Eddie period of the band, and of course their special humour and vocal styles are omnipresent throughout the album.

Soundtrack to the 1971 British musical "surrealistic documentary", featuring Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention; directed and written by Frank Zappa and Tony Palmer, with special material written by Howard Kaylan, Mark Volman, and Jeff Simmons.

Original LP liner notes:
This music is not in the same order as in the movie. Some of this music is in the movie. Some of this music is not in the movie. Some of the music that's in the movie is not in the album. Some of the music that was written for the movie is not in the movie or the album. All of this music was written for the movie, over a period of 4 years. Most of it (60%) was written in motels while touring. The rest of it was either done at home or in our rented flat in London, just prior to shooting. The OVERTURE is a cosmeticized version of one of the themes from "A HOLIDAY IN BERLIN, FULL BLOW"... and WOULD YOU LIKE A SNACK? is a vocal version of the same theme. Some of the situations described in the song texts are real. Some of them are not real. You decide.
