Review
Larry "Wild Man" Fischer was "discovered" on the streets of Hollywood by Frank Zappa, who was intrigued by Fischer's offer to write and perform original songs for passers-by for a mere ten cents each. After hearing a few dollars' worth, Zappa offered Fischer a recording contract, and in 1968 the album "An Evening With Wild Man Fischer" was released. Sometimes funny, sometimes harrowing, a tortured man constantly at war with his own demons. Though you could argue the film makers may be guilty of a kind of exploitation of their subject matter...
