Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention released the live LP “Just Another Band from L.A” on March 26, 1972. The record was recorded live on August 7, 1971 in Pauley Pavilion on the campus of UCLA in Los Angeles. A notable inclusion on this album is “Billy the Mountain”, Zappa’s long, narrative parody of rock operas, which were gaining popularity at that time.
One of the things that not a lot of people realize is that this album marked an important period in the band’s career due to the extensive use of The Turtles band ( Howard Kaylan, Mark Volman and Jim Pons).
Many feel this was the greatest lineup that The Mothers ever had. Would you agree or not?
Happy 46th Birthday to “Just Another Band from L.A.”!!!
