It's too bad the best footage of Zappa seems to always come from the lowest period of his music in my book ('79-84 or so, although as with everything else he did there are tons of exceptions in both directions).
Is the whole Uncle Meat film on Youtube now? It's great even if he didn't get to finish it.
It's also a shame that some of his most interesting arrangement work is paired with his blandest production and lyrics, and least interesting band members like Vai and Bozzio and, well, most of the people he brought on during that period who weren't Ike Willis.
