I found floating around on the web a video for "Mother People". It was put together from 8mm film taken by Motorhead of the Mothers. Great candid shots of all of them plus a couple of people we can't recognize.<br><br>I get the feeling this is just a piece of a larger film/video. When I showed this to Geronimo and his brothers, they were so excited to see these old shots of their dad that I promised I'd try to find more. Anyone know the story on this video? You can find it on KAZAA pretty easily.

Duh, with a little more poking around here I see someone says it's from the Uncle Meat video. Is that correct?

No, monstermovie, I found it with KAZAA, the peer-to-peer filesharing program. LOTS of Zappa video stuff out there. As I identify it, I'd like to buy what's available.<br><br>Does anyone know if Uncle Meat has any more of this ancient footage?<br><br>One highlight to watch for: a very young Lowell George showing us his Little Feat.

You can get it at http://www.slsknet.org . Once you get it, I can give you names of people that have great Zappa collections. (My name on there is suterb. My collection isn't that big, but all the boots I have are essential. Once you get things set up, send me a message so I can put you on my friends list. :))
