I know it has been discussed before I have just watched the 20 odd minutes on YouTube, from the Uncle Meat movie.
It still gives me Goosebumps!
Everything down to even the meter-counting "1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - 1, 2, 3, 4"
What inspired Zappa to instruct certain members to count along at certain times and what was with the synchronized hand clapping when the members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra walked onto the stage?

I still love this early Zappa orchestral music and it would've been great to see a camera fixed on Tripp as he moved from the drum set to the xylophone and back again. There is a brief scene when we do see him walk back to the drums set and he does a flurry of drum rolls (although the sound a visual for that tiny section in the film are not actually in sync).

They were simply the coolest fuckers ever!!!!

How great would it be to watch the entire concert......... 8)
