The weird anachronistic blues rock of Captain Beefheart is celebrated in 'Sun Zoom Spark', a monstrous boxset which collects four of his early 70s recordings: 'Like My Decals Off, Baby', 'The Spotlight Kid', 'Clear Spot' and a record of out-takes called all appear. 'Sun Zoom Spark' is a good find for newly initiated Beefheart fans who want to go further into his story, as well as for completlist fans out there.

10/10 Rob F Customer review, 12th July 2017
This boxset is amazing - a fantastic, and 100% official remaster of the 1970-1972 albums as well as a storming disc of previously unreleased out takes (the holy grail for Beefheart fans as these have been knocking around on hissy bootlegs for years). Beautiful Don Van Vliet artwork and box with decent knowledgeable sleevenotes. Lick My Decals in particular has been unavailable for a long time, and previous reissues have had sub-standard sound, so it's a pleasure to hear it as God, (or indeed Don Van Vliet) intended again.
