That very same song was also recorded in Helsinki in 1973, almost identical except the guitar solo. But there is no video.

Hey Cunt, I'm playing a podcast! Neil Innes' favorite album:
Neil joins me to talk about Frank Zappa’s classic commentary on the Summer of Love and response to Sgt Pepper, ‘We’re Only In It For the Money’. We talk about how the album balances satire and music inventiveness, how Zappa misunderstood one of Neil’s songs while reviewing it, when the Bonzo’s hung out with the Mothers of Invention in the US and the kinship they felt...

College orchestra kid plays a better Pygmy Twylyte solo than Dweezil in any of his sets. Though tapping is a bit of a no no. Zappa did not need any tapping.

This is already in the "instrument" thread. Here with sheet music. The sheet music is the melody line, the drum part is different.

....the documentary is packed with never-before-seen footage of the legendary rock polymath: composer, guitar god, father to the Mothers of Invention, free-speech activist, humorist, satirist, author, occasional actor, beloved late-night guest, and Czechoslovakia’s one-time Special Ambassador to the West on Trade, Culture, and Tourism.

SNL skit
“I thought the whole skit sucked myself, and I was stuck doing it,” Zappa says in the doc. “They wouldn’t let me write anything for the show.” Previously a musical guest in 1976, Zappa never returned to SNL following the 1978 hosting debacle.
