Disc received. Thanks John K. 
This is a great show (IMHO) and the audio quality is superb. 
Vaudeville shtick notwithstanding (whatever the fuck that means), I 
love this era of The Mothers, and George and Ian and Aynsley and 
Frank and even Jeff play great here. Too bad it ends prematurely. I 
saw them one week later (11/13, my first Frank show) at the Fillmore 
East (photos of program are in the photo section here) and I 
remember the audience not responding at all after "Penis Dimension" 
and Frank getting pissed and walking off stage and being 
cajoled/pushed back out on stage(by Herbie Cohen?/Bill Graham?).
I'll send this out to John G in Kansas in a day or two.

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). 
> Not to be outdone by the art school drop-outs and buck-skin fringe 
contingent then wandering the Sunset Strip, Frank Zappa had been 
steadily releasing incredibly strange records since the mid-‘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 Frank’s increasingly bizarre comedy routines and, almost 
incidentally, singing.
> The opening set by Boz Scaggs couldn’t 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 don’t move in any 
one direction for too long; sometimes it’s as if they’re moving 
in all directions at once. There are hints of jazz-fusion and 
psychedelia, along with Zappa’s beloved doo-wop. They even make a 
brief stab at the Turtles’ "Happy Together" as part of the groupie-
baiting sleaze-fest "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy." This is a limber bunch, 
but they’re 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 
they’re baffling. Provoking the crowd, however, is part of the 
plan and listening to Frank scold them for their indifference is 
highly satisfying for anyone who’s ever stood under stage lights. 
> An appreciation for this performance depends entirely on one’s 
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.
