Frank Zappa released two live albums in succession documenting his tour with the Mothers of Invention incarnation that featured Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan (known as Flo & Eddie) getting plenty silly. The first set, Fillmore East: June 1971, included songs left out of the film 200 Motels. The second set, Just Another Band From L.A., was recorded live at the Pauley Pavilion at UCLA in Los Angeles on August 7, 1971. The first side of the original album consisted of the side-long "Billy The Mountain," an elaborate and confusing story that satirizes the rise of the rock opera by settling on rudimentary riffs and an over-the-top theater delivery that would give the players in Waiting For Guffman pause. Side two reinvents two Zappa classics, Absolutely Free's "Call Any Vegetable" and Uncle Meat's "Dog Breath," with Zappa providing guitar solos that further his legend. While Volman and Kaylan take centerstage through the performance, it should be noted that bassist Jim Pons, drummer Aynsley Dunbar, and keyboardists Don Preston and Ian Underwood provide seamless backing throughout.
save yourself from a bad trip
billy the mountain will save your soul from tunneling into the bad dark places for about a half hour. Two &C&E can be horrible in a larger dose. this was a radioairbag

I first heard this album back in 1978 and still use some of its lyrics in my day to day vocabulary. These guys were having too much fun doing what they were born to do...parody everything.
Oops, out of time according to my Dudly Do-Right wrist watch ( with flexy bracelet)...

If you like the first Mothers live album with Flo & Eddie, you’ll love this album too.
I listened to it over and over back in the 80’s when I was a kid and I can still recite almost every silly line of Billy The Mountain and Eddie, Are You Kidding and Call Any Vegetable. Amazing backup band and friggin hilarious fun.
Treat yourself to the adventures of Studebaker Hock, fantastic new superhero of the current economic slump and later, if you call any vegetable, the vegetable will respond to you.
A Jolly good fun time for smart people who are slightly warped.
