    Watching this was a real treat for me. Not only is Uncle Meat my favourite album of the original Mothers, but the footage therein reveals Frank Zappa and the Mothers in their element: Freaking Out!

    High praise, high praise…
    Where else are you going to see footage of the 1968 riot that inspired the song, “Holiday in Berlin”?
