Gary,

I'm not familiar with his music. Care to school me on some of his best work?

Althea........

Captain Beefheart, sometimes associated with Frank Zappa, was very much an aquired taste.
Hope you don't mind me saying so, but knowing you as I do, I can safely say he would not be your cup of tea.

Hi Althea

I've got ongoing casual work , brings in a bit of money, hope you get the full time work you want soon.
Sorry the link for that didn't work , I still like the song, I also like a short track called 'Two Sisters' another example of Ray Davies' story telling. Some of his songs are like short stories.

The Eric Burdon book I bought a few years ago, I saw a heap of hardback copies in a book warehouse about 3 months ago, they were only $5.00 AUS each.

Jay,

How do you prepare you vittles with just cold water! :-) I reckon you could still make road kill stew and serve it up to the group!

Not to make light of your hot water problem but sometimes we just need to laugh when nothing seems to be going right.

Sure thing,

Trout Mask Replica, Clear Spot, Really most of his albums. You may not like it. It's "eccentric", give it a shot. Go for a 180 Gram Vinyl for the best sound.

Althea,

Zappa produced Beefheart's first album and later tried his best to put him more in the public eye,however he was not often an associate of Zappa. He actually disliked him and accused him of trying to steal his chops. A good book on the Captain titled "Through the eyes of Magic" by John French his sometime drummer really relates a great account of those early pioneers.

A.P.,

Another good start is the "Safe as Milk" album.

Captain Beefheart was one of the finest composers of the sixties! "Safe as Milk" is probably a good place to start, but the title lies. None of Beefheart's albums is safe. If you want to start with one song, try "Dachau Blues" from Trout Mask Replica.

James,
Alright! Another Beefheart aficionado. Frownland is also a good start. Let's just send them to "Doc at the Radar Station" and go backwards.

Yikes,

I'm just an old fart at play.

Tell me about it. I remember the Cisco Kid . . . on the radio.

James,

I do also......"ooooooooo Cisco, ooooooooooooooo Pancho." I still have a Red Ryder BB Gun.

Hey James,

Did you have one of those humongous stand up radios with the big dial with the light in the center? Man you opened some door. "Captain Midnight", "The Inner Sanctum" so many I forgot.

I wish I did . . . that was a Philco, wasn't it? Remember how they took 47 years to warm up and how almost none of the knobs worked? Then, when the tubes started loosening, you'd have to whack it a couple of times on the side to get it to stop cackling. Now people make fun of me because I use cheapo earplugs on my iPod--man, that's high fidelity by comparison! I particularly remember the Jack Benny show, Amos & Andy (boy, talk about politically incorrect!), the original radio version of Linkletter's show, and the Make Believe Ballroom. Oh, and the radio Gunsmoke.

I have two by Captain Beefheart, SAFE AS MILK and TROUT MASK REPLICA.

Philco console radio - Yep we had that one!

"Inner Sanctum" & "The Shadow" were ones we were not allowed to listen to, cuz it was bedtime, but we always heard the opening intros - still enough to give you nightmares.

My favorite was "The Lone Ranger". I sent away for a Lone Ranger ring...lots of memories.

2112,

You know me well. I tried but I couldn't get into him.

Butterfly says:
Gary,

I gave "Safe as Milk" a try and it isn't for me, like 2112 said.

Thank you anyway. :-)

Got anything else?

cw,

I hadn't heard any of his music or even him in years until you guys brought up his name and I still don't like him. Not my thing.

ronct,

I tried to listen to him one more time and I just don't get it, didn't do a thing for me.

If I put this on the turntable, I bet he'll come over.;-)

Sounds wonderful in mono. Did I tell you I found a CD of many of Dylan's 60's songs in mono too?

I haven't seen Rose around either?
