referencing Fillmore East June-1971, LP, Album, RE, 28.026, MS 2042

Fillmore East – June 1971 is a live concept-like album. It portrays a peek-behind-the-curtain of the life of a rock band on the road as narrated by Frank Zappa, and contains many thematic elements that, because of time and budget constraints, couldn't be included in the similar movie 200 Motels. The most famous part of the album is "The Mud Shark", a telling of a story told to Mother Don Preston by some members of Vanilla Fudge about a hotel, Seattle's Edgewater Inn, where guests could fish from their rooms. In the tale, a mud shark is caught by one of the members of Vanilla Fudge or its crew and, when combined with a groupie and a movie camera, depravity ensues. Although not stated in "The Mud Shark," this 1969 incident, now referred to as "the Shark episode," also involved Led Zeppelin's drummer John Bonham and road manager Richard Cole, with Vanilla Fudge's singer/keyboardist Mark Stein operating the movie camera.

Frank and the Mothers then portray stereotypically egotistical members of a rock band "negotiating" with a groupie and her girlfriends for a quick "roll in the hay." The girls are insulted that the band thinks they are groupies and that they would sleep with the band just because they are musicians. They have standards; they will only have sex with a guy in a group with a "big, hit single in the charts – with a bullet!" and a "dick that’s a monster." In "Bwana Dik", singer Howard Kaylan assures the girls that he is endowed beyond their "wildest Clearasil-spattered fantasies." And, not to be put off by the standards of these groupies, the band sings the girls the Turtles (of which Kaylan, Volman, and Pons had been members) hit "Happy Together", to give them their "bullet". The album ends with an encore excerpt including both Zappa's familiar "Peaches en Regalia" and what was possibly his most successful early-rock and roll pastiche, "Tears Began to Fall" (also issued as a single).

I have a copy very similar to this one.

The differents are:

Runout side 1: Stamped: R/S Alsdorf 44150 A2 "STRAWBERRY ©"
Runout side 2: 31273 44150 Bx PF

Beige label
The "r" is black on orange background
On the bottom of the label it is printed REP 44 150 and under there is printed (31 273)

Otherwise it is the same.

Does anybody know anything about this relese?

referencing Fillmore East - June 1971, CD, Album, RE, RM, CDZAP 29

The Fillmore East was closed in June 1971 with a series of shows. This was one, in which Zappa praises the work of Bill Graham and in which the high-register duo of Volman & Kaylan (aka Phlorescent Leech & Eddie, aka Flo & Eddie) reprise their Turtles hit in a groupie-girl 'Fillmore-Car' parody through tracks 7 & 8.

"Willie The Pimp Part Two" on the original vinyl is not included on this CD. A chunk of this concert was also originally omitted, when The Mothers were joined on stage by John & Yoko Lennon for a jam, that Lennon later remixed onto "Some Time In New York City" that also included 'Jamrag'- a track arguably co-opted from Zappa's 'King Kong' and causing a rift between the two. FZ eventually restored the original mixes on the 1992 "Playground Psychotics" collection.

"Fillmore East - June 1971" is a really great album for discovering the versatility of Zappa and the beginnings of his interlocking musical sub-culture, his allusions, name dropping ("we are not groupies, and we told Robert Plant that") and acidic cultural references, and probably one of the happiest bands he ever worked with. FZ calls upon his audience "Don't Forget To Vote"- written large in the 2-fold case notes by his Log Cabin tenant, artist Cal Schenkel.

I used to have the vinyl. Sadly, like the Fillmore East & Fillmore West, it disappeared. This is a good remastered replacement, but nostalgia's not like it used to be.
