This is what I remember from an LP review a long time ago: Bird of peace is from Woodshock, a humorous tribute to Woodstock. Nothing to do with Zappa or Dylan, but imitators having a bit of fun.
The song itself is supposed to be the festival encore with everybody on stage, and it features Neil Young (Bird of peace, flying high, so I took my gun and shot it), Dean Martin (too pissed to sing, all you hear is clinking bottles), Bee Gees (the vibrato way up) and many others. Black Sabbath is also featured on the album, but the song stops short because they kill themselves (or was it just the singer suiciding...) So there. I tried to google for more info, no luck.

I heave the 2/21/79 show where it says these are from and the Overture must be the intro sound effects and music from that show but nothing sounds the the Bird title.

"Unreleased session with Neil Young, The Band, George Harrison, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Leonard Cohen and The Bee Gees". This one is in fact not a Dylan track, but a Zappa one. Frank and his band mates imitate the voices of the above artists. > All Zappa tracks were recorded live in Bruxelles Feb. 21, 1979 at Vorst National > > > Matt > For further Z-related fun, please visit http://www.thebignote.com or http://www.killuglyradio.com , thank you.
