First time I had seen video footage of FZ/Mothers from that festival.
Even though it is only 8mm sans audio what little glimpse we get is cool.

There are also some FZ/Mothers photos at the Miami Pop Festival website,
which is seemingly a commercial photo licensing site.
Notably a few FZ with tympani drums and some backstage photos.

I believe I had requested that FZ/Mothers performance
as a wish list item here at the Zappa.com NG around a year or so ago.
Still hopefully waiting fore the ZFT to transfer that show for a Vaulternative Records download.

On the DVD of "Hear My Train A Comin'" there is bonus film footage of Hendrix at the Miami Pop Festival. In the intro to the bonus footage they show a short clip of FZ and the Mothers. There's no sound (just a close up of Frank and Motorhead singing), but it seems it pretty clear that the whole festival was filmed with the same equipment used for the Hendrix footage. It's very decent quality.
