On Aug. 7, 1971, Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention played a concert at the Pauley Pavilion at UCLA in Los Angeles. The concert was recorded and released in 1972 as the LP “Just Another Band from L.A.” Included on this album is “Billy the Mountain”, Zappa’s long, narrative parody of rock operas, which were gaining popularity at that time.
This album marks an important period in the band’s career due to the extensive use of The Turtles band members Mark Volman, Howard Kaylan and Jim Pons. It is interesting to note, as we have mentioned in an earlier post today, that it was just 6 years earlier to the day that The Turtles released their first single.
Did you ever get a chance to see Frank and The Mothers? And did you ever get to see them with Mark Volman / Howard Kaylan aka Flo & Eddie?
