Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Safe As Milk

50th anniversary edition of this classic debut from the Captain and his merry travellers. Though the title could be seen as tongue in cheek, this is the group at their most accessible with their blues-influenced work only just fraying at the edges. We're still a long way from Trout Mask Replica but this is a brilliant work and has been re-issued to celebrate its half century.

Captain Beefheart
Live at Knebworth 1975

Although Beefheart was in something of a creative slump mid '70s, he returned to Knebworth each year to perform his avant boogie blues. Here he seems to stick to a tried and tested setlist of freakout favourites which must have delighted any hippies still hanging on as well as proto new wavers waiting for punk to come along. Comes on orange wax and is a re-press of the RSD16 item thus banging another nail into the coffin of Record Store Day.

Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart
Providence College, Rhode Island, April 26th 1975

Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart were childhood friends. Both men viewed music from a different perspective than most - twisted, original, musically adept. Beefheart had fallen out with Zappa after Trout Mask Replica was released, Beefheart accusing Zappa of marketing him as a freak. The Pair reunited for the tour which included the Providence College, Rhode Island, April 26th 1975 gig, finding both artists in scintillating form. They would go on to make Bongo Fury together which was released later that year.
