Pink Floyd feat. Frank Zappa: Interstellar Zappadrive

Recorded Live at Mont de L'Enclus, Amougies, Belgium - October 25, 1969.

About two minutes into the song, Zappa starts playing guitar (a borrowed one) with his very distinct, staccato style that includes a couple licks that sound like something from “Hot Rats." Zappa’s playing here is what motivates the band to slip into a bit of avant-garde, atonal playing just before returning to Richard Wright on the organ. Then follows some unmistakably Zappa guitar playing before the song concludes.

Asked about jamming with Zappa, Nick Mason has this to say in 1973:
"Frank Zappa is really one of those rare musicians that can play with us. The little he did in Amougies was terribly correct. But he’s the exception. Our music and the way we behave on stage, makes it very hard to improvise with us.”
