I would be great too. That's the only thing I'm lacking.

Too many people have been itching about the Roxy video. I for one would much prefer to see the rest of the B&W Mothers footage that was shown as the Trailer, and the beginning of the BBC 2 Late Show special broadcast in April 1993.

I still have no idea what the performance is. I know it must have been sometime in 1968, or very early 1969.

1968 SportPalast Berlin Germany

The Mothers were playing in W. Berlin in 1968. During afternoon soundcheck, FZ was approached by a group of German youths, who paid him compliments, described themselves as activists and asked for his assistance in a project. He asked them What project? They said, tonight we are marching to the American Center in order to burn it down, and we want you to lead the parade. FZ said, in so many words, get lost.

At the concert that night, these same "activists," with reinforcements, disrupted the concert, chanting anti American slogans and piling onto the stage while the band was playing, and you know how pissed FZ got whenever a concert was interrupted for no "good" reason. There's film footage of the incident.

Taken from IINK :wink:

Gail talks about the concert on one video(tv show)!
