In the MOJO tribute issue, someone (Barry Miles I think, but I'm not certain) talks about watching Otis conduct the Mothers in the studio while Zappa was in the control room. The track he talks about specifically is Holiday In Berlin. I can't see anyone 'conducting' Hot Rats, because it's built up entirely of overdubs as far as I can tell, but Otis conducting the Mothers around that time seems to be a fact. -- DUMB ANGEL HAS UPDATED 7/11/05! - Little Brian In Smileland http://dumbangel.keenspace.com A webcomic about Smile For further Z-related fun, please visit http://www.thebignote.com or http://www.killuglyradio.com , thank you.
