Zappa and The Dovells

In 1963 Paul Buff and Frank Zappa recorded a parody of The Dovells' You Can't Sit Down, titled Can't Stand Up. This recording can be heard on Paul Buff Presents The Pal And Original Sound Studio Archives, Vol. 1 (2010).

During a concert on 30 September 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden Zappa and the Mothers briefly covered Bristol Stomp. This track can be heard on 'Tis The Season To Be Jelly (BTB) (1991).
