Frank Zappa - Just Another Band From L.A.



This is the first Zappa I ever heard and ever since I have been amused by his way of organizing things. This is a live record from the Flo and Eddie era, so the year is 1970 or '71. It starts off with the opera of Billy the Mountain, a 30 minute tale about a majestic mountain named Billy and his small wooden wife, Ethel. Then he plays some hits like call any vegetable and eddie are you kidding? magdelena and dog breath.
