Not much is known about this never aired documentary, but it is the source of the infamous "1970 11 26 - Mountford Hall, Liverpool, UK (and elsewhere)" tape. The original tape had some humming in one channel, but since the whole documentary was mono, this problem was resolved by duplicating the other channel. Side two (tracks 7-9) still have occasional humming, but this can be eliminated using e.g. paragraphic EQ. The first live tracks are definitely from the Liverpool show (as a voice introduces them by saying "Frank Zappa, Liverpool, concert"), the others are very likely to be from the next day on Manchester, as before the interview a voice says "Midlands Hotel, Manchester", though no material from this tape overlaps with the circulating audience tape. This tape has still the distortion problems that are mentioned, but still sounds very nice and it is a big upgrade compared to the pervious seed. A delightful note: the documentary begins with some field recordings, the very beginning is recorded in London outside a luxury hotel, where the film crew is denied access because the management fears they'll help FZ record a sex film!

Thanks to Yojimbo for collecting and transfering!
Thanks to Flambay for his speed correction advices!

Thank you.

Talk about an interviewer with an agenda! But there was still some useful and specific information about Plastic People.

Thanks for this!

To me, the voice of the interviewer sounds like Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser.

But I don't know if he had worked also for the ZDF in 1970.

On the other hand, I'd like to think that Kaiser's English would have to be better? hmm

Excellent, never heard this before!

Has any of the footage of this unaired documentary ever surfaced? Does anybody know if the footage even still exists?
