  splashed down on the Fillmore West for a series of shows in November 
  of 1970 before washing back into the seedy ocean of L.A., leaving the 
  landscape forever changed (or at least confused and offended).

  contingent then wandering the Sunset Strip, Frank Zappa had been 
  steadily releasing incredibly strange records since the mid-â?~60s. 
  He abandoned the original Mothers at the close of that decade, only 
  to reform a different line-up under the same name in 1970, this time 
  including two members of the Turtles, Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman 
  (sometimes known as Flo & Eddie due to contractual problems), to help 
  with Frankâ?Ts increasingly bizarre comedy routines and, almost 
  incidentally, singing.
  > The opening set by Boz Scaggs couldnâ?Tt possibly have prepared 
  anyone for what was going to occur that night at the corner of Van 
  Ness and Market, though it did prove that Bill Graham had a pretty 
  good sense of humor. Eager to try out material from the upcoming 200 
  Motels film and accompanying album, the Mothers donâ?Tt move in any 
  one direction for too long; sometimes itâ?Ts as if theyâ?Tre moving 
  in all directions at once. There are hints of jazz-fusion and 
  psychedelia, along with Zappaâ?Ts beloved doo-wop. They even make a 
  brief stab at the Turtlesâ?T "Happy Together" as part of the groupie-
  baiting sleaze-fest "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy." This is a limber bunch, 
  but theyâ?Tre at their best when playing it straight ("Call Any 
  Vegetable" from Absolutely Free is a prime example). Some songs are 
  derailed by excessive hollering and dialogue, the delivery of which 
  suggests the performers are nearly as bored as the audience theyâ?Tre 
  baffling. Provoking the crowd, however, is part of the plan and 
  listening to Frank scold them for their indifference is highly 
  satisfying for anyone whoâ?Ts ever stood under stage lights. 
  > An appreciation for this performance depends entirely on oneâ?Ts 
  threshold for long and noodly instrumental explorations accented by 
  dick jokes. But it can safely be said that no one else was doing 
  anything quite like this at the time. During an age of weird, Frank 
  Zappa had the distinction of being the unparalleled weirdest.
