Notes

Captain Beefheart

The Lost Tapes: 1966-1970

A propos du DVD.
Filmée de bric et de broc, parfois avec une pelle à charbon, cette compilation d'enregistrements live de la période de 1966 à 1970, pour la moitié en France et jamais visibles jusqu'à présent, est bien à l'image du Capitaine Cœur de Bœuf et de sa musique. Au premier abord ça fait un peu crade et une heure après on s'aperçoit qu'on n'a pas décroché une seconde. Un mec qui était un des meilleurs potes au Zappa et, alors qu'il pouvait tranquillement poursuivre sa carrière musicale, car il est indémodable, s'est retiré dans le désert pour faire de la peinture ne peut que mériter notre empathie ou notre intérêt.

Le Capitaine Cœur de Bœuf :

Quel peut bien être le lien réunissant des artistes aussi éloignés qu’Alain Bashung, LCD Soundsytem, Pixies, PJ Harvey, Tom Waits, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nick Cave, Sonic Youth, The Black Keys ou Deus ? Tous ont revendiqué, pour son esprit tordu ou sa musique déstructurée, l’influence de Captain Beefheart.

On mesure ainsi chaque jour, au rythme des chansons libres, frondeuses, tabassées qui émergent sur le Net, à quel point le Californien, rangé des bécanes pour une carrière de peintre désertique depuis le début des eighties, a été une force de proposition et de libération inouïe, dès les années 60.

Car en réinventant le blues, primitif, possédé, sale et sexuel avec une incompétence gracieuse sur des albums aussi fondamentaux que son Trout Mask Replica (1969), il ouvrait la porte en grand à des générations futures de musiciens plus portés sur la sauvagerie, l’irrespect que la virtuosité, la sagesse.

L’avant-garde, sans le bullshit et les fastidieuses explications de textes : la musique populaire américaine (du blues antique au free jazz en passant par le funk) a été la victime constante, parfois consentante, des dynamitages carabinés et jeux polissons de Captain Beefheart…

Le punk, la lo-fi et tout un tas de leurs rejetons hagards, mal élevés, électrocutés doivent ainsi beaucoup, souvent sans le savoir, à ce formidable médecin accoucheur que restera le Californien, cascadeur sans filet, mineur de grands fonds.

“Les animaux sont assez malins pour rester à l’écart des humains”, disait-il depuis sa retraite en plein
désert de Mojave. Captain Beefheart était un ours mal léché, un crotale, un hobo beau : en pensant à son bayou
asséché, nos larmes sont de crocodiles.

Big thanks to the original taper, and to the trader (jbk) who hooked me up with a copy.
I originally mastered this 2009-08-30.
The only thing I did on the computer was place track marks before each piece.
This FLAC fileset comes from WAVs from this dub, which only needed SBE corrections in TLH; no CD-Rs or EACs.

NOTES

I've had the Spotlight & Shiny outtakes on constant rotation in my car & it's on my mind to get some more Beefy goodness out here.
Pulling out a variety of shows from different timeframes - here's a nice old one.

Always thought this was mono by ear, but I see on the computer there really is some separation, if a bit limited.
Not perfect by today's clear digital standards, but pretty good considering it's 1970.
It's a bit dodgy at first (heads not lined up), but settles down after a bit.

As I note below, I start tracks with the count-in or the music.
For this show, someone seemed to yell "hey!" as a one-beat count-in, so I left that shout intact as the lead in to tracks where present.

The band intros are just after Joan, I didn't break that out to a separate track.

There's an edit in the source tape just before One Red Rose.

Hendrix died that day, that's why Earth Angel is dedicated to him; the source for the bulk of the show has this song cut off before completion.
As it came to me on my source tape, there's an alternate source version that is NOT missing the end, which follows the cut-off version.
I've included both, in the same way they both came to me.

A fine set including a nice version of Bellerin' Plain.

- - - -

I dunno about you, but when I hear stuff this old, I am REALLY grateful that people went and recorded things like this.
And I'm glad traders kept them going around long enough so I could get a copy many years later.

- - - -

Filenames have numbers on the end that are the TIMES (ex. - "...-359" is 3min59sec long).

I mark the start of tracks when the music or count-in begins, not the talking about it before it starts.

This torrent is an upgrade, as detailed in the next paragraph, to the Spotlight Kid Outtakes 2nd revision I posted in October 2006. This is the link to the old torrent if you want to compare:
http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=117977

A very friendly DIME fellow who wants to stay anonymous sent his collection of Spotlight Kid outtakes. Thank you very much for your generosity!
Every Beefheart fan has its own version, but this time we are talking about a known 2nd gen!
A former band member received the tapes on getting the gig, they were made for him in order to learn the tunes. Our guy got them directly from him, he transferred the tapes to CDR using a stand alone CD burner, no editing or mastering in this step.
What I got are FLAC files directly ripped from the CDR. The sound quality of the tracks is astonishing, my english isn't good enough to describe the details. You have to hear them!

Some statistics:
- 41 tracks overall. Length: 198:33
- 33 tracks from the 2nd gen in excellent sound quality (1)
- 8 tracks from 3rd gen with improved sound quality (2), (3), (4)
- 2 new tracks: Circumstances and a new version of Semi-Multicoloured Caucasian
- 2 tracks uncut: Funeral Hill (Version 1), Low Yo Yo Stuff (Instrumental)
- 1 stereo upgrade: Dirty Blue Gene (Version 1) before only available in mono

Don Van Vliet: I was thinking warm and nice when I did that one (The Spotlight Kid) and I feel that it has all come through. Actually, though there are only ten tracks on the album, we recorded thirty-five songs altogether.
(Roy Carr: Svengali Zappa And A Horrible Freak Called Beefheart. New Musical Express. January 12, 1972)

Mike Barnes: Bill Harkleroad explains the genesis of the mass of unfinished material from this era: "We had a blocked amount of time (for The Spotlight Kid) and we had an cache of tunes. We just went in there in the typical way that we worked. Just take it, keep it, move on. Don was trying to use the studio more. (He thought) here we are, they're paying for it, let's get the most out of it and put some things down - unfinished licks and riffs that he thought were songs. It was a very incomplete, uncontrolled situation, like "What the hell's going on, what are we playing and where does this go?" Even with tunes that were "done", and that people think are great, a lot of them were unfinished ideas with a part missing here and there."
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

Dave Lynch: An incredible quantity of various takes in semi-annotated form, many given different titles; everybody seems to have a different set of these. All in all, they're interesting demos, but not particularly cohesive, with lots of loose jamming and repetition. Quality is mostly clean, although a significant amount of tape hiss mars some spots.
(Captain Beefheart Tapes)

Pete Mulvey: There are more out-takes for Spotlight Kid than any other album. Well, more to my knowledge, but you're right, that might just be sloppy controls for a brief period in history. There must have been a large number of demo tapes flying around as Beefheart sought to get out from under Zappa, and as Warners tried to capitalize on their investment. Beefheart regularly used to claim that none of the first three albums recouped their recording costs sufficiently to pay royalties, a wonderful allegation gleefully repeated in acolyte interviews, yet the Captain also claims that the album was recorded in under five hours. Let's say that two and a half days is a more rational estimate. The Record Company would also pay for rehearsals, and the band was note perfect on arrival, but rehearsal space is not the big expense. No, if the man has not been accounted for royalties on 'Trout Mask', it is because there are large cash advances to be deducted, keeping the band in meals, women, socks, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Don't blame them, myself, but there's no substitute for a happy band on the road, getting their material straight in front of people who cannot hear the detail of the difficulties they are experiencing.
So, the band completed the sixties and started touring the more accessible blues approach that would be The Spotlight Kid. The out-takes of the period are an extraordinary bunch. I have heard two C90s, the first of which contains a range of material most of which does not make the album, but gets resurrected on a future release. The second is more extended, instrumental-based stuff, reminiscent of those tapes of backing tracks that are around for some of the albums. Some are rambling runs, seven minutes of 'Drink Paint, Run, Run' and twenty-five of a blues-based jam which contains the words 'Sun Zoom Spark', along with 'Key To The Highway' and 'Baby Scratch My Back'. Beefheart can be heard referring to the number as 'Sun Zoom Spark', but he kept very little of this Bill Harkleroad performance, the emphasis shifting to that extraordinary rhythm. Hard to hear such work-outs without thinking that if anyone came up with the key phrase, new sound, or decent rhythmic touch, then Beefheart would incorporate it. If not, they take place simply to loosen fingers. If so, the musicians' claims to have had more than a hand in the writing could carry a little weight. Of course, if they can't prove it with their tape collection, then maybe Beefheart wrote the lot. It is just so hard to believe because it is such a varied but excellent body of work, and so hard to imagine someone describing what they want from an instrument they cannot play. There are instrumentals that are part of the development of backing tracks that will one day carry lyrics, 'Best Batch Yet' and 'Clear Spot', and there are instrumentals that will be honed into, well, instrumentals, 'Alice In Blunderland' and 'Pompadour' (which became 'Suction Prints'). These last four are intact, have their key passages all mapped out for them even at this stage. 'Harry Irene' appears for some reason in a spacious, lilting, delicate version, close to the final answer, yet a decade away from release. Also sounding very similar to the version that appears in the Shiny Beast sessions, Bill's work presumably considered well worthy of repetition. The boring 'Funeral Hill' is also well represented; if the tapes are anything to go by, they played that more often than anything else. Baffling. As so often, Beefheart has retained the number, certain that it can be something worth having, and has resurrected it in these sessions. It is just possible to believe that it metamorphosed into 'There Ain't No Santa Claus On The Evenin' Stage', but I can put together an argument for 'Glider' as well. He obviously has great faith in both that and 'Little Scratch', although the latter at least changed cosmetically, becoming 'Natural Charm' before it finally achieved release as 'The Past Sure Is Tense', in a much changed format.
While on the subject of alternate titles, I have seen 'Funeral Hill' listed as 'Flat On Your Back', and 'Seam Crooked Sam' as 'Can't Do This Unless I Can Do That'. 'Little Scratch' can come across as 'Sure Had A Real Good Time', and 'Kiss Me My Love' as 'Two Rips In A Haystack'. I could make up a load of them; they have a certain logic, normally the first line of the song. The blues dominate the tapes, though. The acquisition of Winged Eel Fingerling must have been a shot in the bluesman's arm, his guitar blues education competing with his view of the unstructured potential of the blues and complementing Don's desires to veer off the mainstream blues path. The songs were obviously not created in long jams, but Elliot Ingber must have been taken with Don's music to extend anything to that length. Having said that, there are certain pictures of Ingber that suggest he would have had trouble finding an end to a tune that day at least.
The unreleased instrumentals are intriguing as work in progress. They contain classic sounding Beefheart figures, some just played to death in the absence of further instructions; the musos do not dare to express more than was required of them. Some of the backing track tapes are produced without him, but here one has the feeling of a controlling presence in the booth.
The band's line-up identifies the instrumentals anyway; they are Beefheart. His is a unique voice in composition, bringing a different sound out of familiar instruments and writing in a distinctive rhythmic style, colored with that marimba. If only he or Jan could have bolted some lyrics onto these, there would be an unreleased album fighting to get out. As it is, the potential of this twenty-five year old material will never be realized: it will tantalize forever. There are the beginnings of 'Clear Spot' and 'Low Yo Yo Stuff', 'Seam Crooked Sam' and 'A Carrot Is As Close'. The harmonica is featured on 'Seam Crooked Sam' in a terrific introduction to the track. The 'Spotlight Kid' LP is only 36 minutes long; you'd have thought some of these would not have disgraced the finished album. One fears that he is providing a minimum to satisfy a contractual requirement rather than producing value for the fans. Just listening to the twenty-five minutes of Pompadour you can hear pleasure in the band's playing that does not stay the course to the 'Shiny Beast' version. Also you can hear the Rockette Morton bass riff from 'Blabber 'n Smoke' and the Zoot Horn Rollo guitar from 'Booglarize'. Were they created for 'Pompadour'? By whom? This would have edited into an excellent track for the album, and with the references to other tracks, perhaps would have made an overture; revise a few lyrics and stick in a few self-referential solos and we could have had a concept album, and called it Conservation Act 1.
Where is the recognition that Beefheart deserves? His music demands and repays regular listens. Do Blues fans appreciate his work? I suspect not, yet cannot explain their indifference, given his obvious influences. No-one did it like that before him, and no-one could do it like that even after. Only Pere Ubu come near enough to nod in recognition, yet one would anticipate a school of composers exploring the rooms whose doors Don opened. There is no better introduction than the twofer CD Spotlight Kid/Clear Spot. Cheap to the point of gift, it contains a consistent range of glorious songs, culled from what we now know to be a much bigger bank of material. It may not please the purist, leaning as it does towards accessibility, but it is some of the fruit of a year of hard creative work.
(The Spotlight Kid Outtakes. Steal Softly Thru Snow #6)

Steve Froy: As far as I'm aware during 1971 Don had unprecedented access to studio time, presumably courtesy of Reprise, and so a lot of the rehearsals, jams etc. seem to have been recorded. We're talking about the preparations and recording of The Spotlight Kid, Brown Star and Clear Spot albums all within the space of a year. Many of the out-takes appear to come from the Spotlight and Brown Star sessions. They appear (to me at least) to have the same 'downer' feel as Spotlight (if you remember Bill Harkleroad spoke about the band being physically and emotionally drained at this time). I think Don realised that Brown Star wasn't happening and aborted it; had a rest and then had another go which Ted Templeton moulded into Clear Spot. There does exist another bunch of out-takes and backing tracks that are definitely from Clear Spot.
Without knowing exactly when each one was recorded it's difficult to give definitive answers about the origins of these tracks. So much of what I've said is speculative. Most of the Spotlight/Brown Star stuff are instrumental jams although there are a couple of early vocal versions of some well known songs. This was a very productive period and Don would return to plunder it for his last three albums. Although familiar titles are used for many of the out-takes/jams it can get very confusing because Don would reuse the same title for another song at a later date.

Henry Kaiser: EVERYTHING IS FROM ONE SESSION. I HAVE SEEN ALL THE MASTER TAPES AND THE DATES> I KNOW THIS> JOHN FRENCH CAN CONFIRM. BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT FOR HIS BOOK. THE ARE FINISHED MASTERS FOR 'FUNERAL HILL' AND 'HARRY IRENE' - THEY WERE PULLED AT THE LAST MINUTE. NO OTHER TRAKS ARE COMPLETE BECAUSE THE $$$ & TIME RAN OUT FOR THE STUDIO.
ONLY ONE SESSION FOR ALL. ELLIOT JUST COMES IN FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS. ALL SONGS EXCEPT 'ALICE', 'POMPADOR SWAMP' AND 'BALLERINO' ('CARROT IS AS CLOSE'>>) WERE MEANT TO HAVE VOCALS OVERDUBBED. THEY ARE ALL BASIC TRACKS FOR SONGS> THERE ARE NO SKETCHES _ IT'S JUST THAT MANY SONGS WERE NEVER FINISHED> ALL IS LATE 1971 maybe OCT OR EARLY NOV. - I WOULD NEED TO GO IN MY VAULT TO CHECK THE TAPES FOR PRECISE DATES. ALL IS ONE SESSION. ONE SESSION>
Who was/could have been the drummer? What's about John French? IT"S ALL JF.

Gary Lucas: Don told me the correct spelling of #6 was 'U Bean So Cinquo'--"You've been so FIVE! Hey, Gary, isn't that HIP?" Just what it all meant he never actually said...
I believe also it should be 'Your Love Brought Me to Life', 'Balladino', 'Two Rips in a Haystack' (definitely, recycled as "two tears" (as in tearing a piece of paper, not tears of joy) "in a haystack" in the 'Ice Cream for Crow' lyrics--sublime yonic and anal symbolism here combined, boys and girls.
I got most of this music courtesy of Ted "Hey" Laffey, who "liberated" these tracks (with Kaiser I'm told) from the Warner Vaults in '80--Laffey used to be a special projects guy there--also of interest on these tapes is the fantastic 'I Can't Do This, Unless I Can Do This', which features the mic'ed up percussive thump of John French tap dancing as the rhythm track, Don wheezing through his harp in great 'White Jam' ("it's about some white people jamming, Gary"--right, not about cunning lingual mucous mules twat trala trala) style, then reciting the opening lines of Odd Jobs before it thumps to a halt.
I totally agree with that previous remark about Don's feedback harp solo on 'Funeral Hill' being an analog to Hendrix's guitar, exactly what I thought when I first heard this 22 years ago, amazing performance, unbeatable track- "Man, we cut that on angel dust" --also: "Y'know, Hendrix came to me one time and said 'Hey Don...' (dramatic pause)...'Your Voice' (pointing to throat)...'My Guitar (miming air guitar)...he actually wanted me to join him in a new group! Isn't that silly?".
I never knew whether to take him seriously about alot of this...but occasionally, it did check out. sometimes not...
"Man that poor little Marianne Faithfull, did you see her on Saturday Night Live last night? You know, she never wanted to be with JAGGER (disdainful drawn-out sarcastic pronunciation here)...she wanted to be with ME!!"
I scanned Marianne's memoirs once for a mention of this torrid infatuation... but no Don...(he does figure rather comically in Pamela des Barres book, which was actually alot more convincing a tale).

The Spotlight Kid Sessions
October-early November 1971
Record Plant Studios, Los Angeles, CA

1-01 Drink Paint Run Run (7:28:977) alternate 'Run Paint Run Run' (released on Doc At The Radar Station)
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums
Comments:
Colin David Webb: He also experimented with early versions of 'Drink Paint Run Run' (totally different lyrics, the tune was to be used later as the basis for 'Ice Cream For Crow').
(Captain Beefheart. The Man And His Music, 1989)
Mike Barnes: 'Run Paint Run Run' (from Doc At The Radar Station) propagates a germ of an idea from 'Drink Paint Run Run' from the 1971 Spotlight Kid sessions, although the semantic overlap is about the only thing they have in common. ... The guitar line of ('Ice Cream For Crow') originates from 'Drink Paint Run Run' from the Spotlight Kid sessions from 1971, and a few ideas for the lyrics from its contemporary, 'Two Rips In A Haystack'.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

1-02 Seam Crooked Sam (Version 2) (2:18:290) AKA 'Can't Do This Unless I Do That' (recorded for Bat Chain Puller)
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Art Tripp?: maracas
John French: tap-dance
Comments:
Colin David Webb: a ripping blues version.
Pete Mulvy: The harmonica is featured on 'Seam Crooked Sam' in a terrific introduction to the track.
(The Spotlight Kid Outtakes. Steal Softly Thru Snow #6)
Gary Lucas: Also of interest on these tapes is the fantastic 'I Can't Do This, Unless I Can Do This', which features the mic'ed up percussive thump of John French tap dancing as the rhythm track, Don wheezing through his harp in great 'White Jam' ("it's about some white people jamming, Gary"--right, not about cunning lingual mucous mules twat trala trala) style, then reciting the opening lines of 'Odd Jobs' before it thumps to a halt.
(Fire Party)

1-03 Dirty Blue Gene (Version 1) (2:54:642) different version released on Doc At The Radar Station
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Comments:
Scott Hand: This thing about the later albums being drawn from old material comes up a lot, so I thought I would give my take on it. While there were songs with the same titles and some of the same lyrics laying around for years, they really aren't the same songs. Right off the top of my head, I can remember first hearing the old blues version of 'Dirty Blue Gene', no way i would have if not for looking at the title.
(alt.fan.capt-beefheart)
Mike Barnes: 'Dirty Blue Gene' is another example of material released at last after a lengthy metamorphosis. Its thirteen-year transmutation saw it progress from a good title (which Van Vliet obviously loved) for an instrumental piece recorded in 1967, to completely different music complete with lyrics in 1971 and then a version close to this one (released on Doc At The Radar Station) from the 1972 Clear Spot sessions. With a few minor changes it became the thunderous song on 'Doc At The Radar Station'.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

1-04 Sun Zoom Spark (Version 3)(4:12:283) electric version, different version released on Clear Spot
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: guitar
Roy Estrada: bass
Art Tripp: drums, percussion

Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
Don Van Vliet: "I've gotta hear that thing, man".
Mike Barnes: The guitar line of ('Ice Cream For Crow') originates from 'Drink Paint Run Run' from the Spotlight Kid sessions from 1971, and a few ideas for the lyrics from its contemporary, 'Two Rips In A Haystack'.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

1-06 Funeral Hill (Version 1) (6:46:236) AKA 'Don't Get Chicken Blues' 'wild version' AKA 'Flat On The Back'
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Elliot Ingber: guitar
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums
Comments:
Pete Mulvey: The boring 'Funeral Hill' is also well represented; if the tapes are anything to go by, they played that more often than anything else. Baffling. As so often, Beefheart has retained the number, certain that it can be something worth having, and has resurrected it in these sessions.

(Fire Party)
David Lynch: absolutely killer version of 'Funeral Hill'.
Steve Froy: As if these 'blues' are not enough Don rubs our noses in it with 'There Ain't No Santa Claus On The Evenin Stage'. I have already discussed this track. I don't see how this fits in with the "warm and nice" feel Don described he had for this album. It is interesting to note that there is one out-take from this time which is very similar in feel to There Ain't No Santa Claus On The Evenin Stage but is even more depressing. It is called 'Funeral Hill' and it is just as well this didn't make it onto the released version or it would have been a real downer of an album.
(Captain Beefheart. At the Crossroads with The Spotlight Kid. Perfect Sound Forever, 1999)
Mike Barnes: The only tracks that were mixed down to two-track for possible inclusion on The Spotlight Kid but were discarded were 'Harry Irene' ... and 'Funeral Hill'. This uncromisingly grim tune is as slow as the slowest tracks on the album. The railing against mortality, the fist in the face of death that hallmarked 'Fallin' Ditch', is itself ditched as the protagonist of the song is actually deceased. The only advantage of this state is that it avoids life. The boss man of Plastic Factory is again recast as the "fat man", the oppressor, but he can no longer "spat [sic] in your eye", as you've finally "paid your bill". There are two versions of the track: a shorter, tighter one and an elongated version where Ingber sets off a berserker-style fretboard foray.
(Captain Beefheart. 2000)

1-07 Harry Irene (2:51:164) jazzy guitar version, different version recorded for Bat Chain Puller, another version released on Shiny Beast
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, whistling
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: guitar
Art Tripp: drums, percussion
Comments:
Pete Mulvey: 'Harry Irene' appears for some reason in a spacious, lilting, delicate version, close to the final answer, yet a decade away from release. Also sounding very similar to the version that appears in the Shiny Beast sessions, Bill's work presumably considered well worthy of repetition.

1-08 Open Pins (5:41:854)
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba

1-09 Dual & Abdul (2:44:970)
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums

Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Dual & Abdul' has been floating around for at least 20 years but always associated with the Decals Outtakes. If it was actually recorded during the Spotlight Kid takes, as seems likely ... (it has a similar feel to many of the above) then there is also ... 'Open Pins' to re-locate to this period.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)

1-10 Semi-Multicoloured Caucasian (Version 2) (3:05:670) different version released on Ice Cream For Crow
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: Featuring guitar and inevitably, marimba.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow)
Mike Barnes: The instrumental 'Semi-Multicoloured Caucasian' is, titlewise, a take on one of Van Vliet's oft-repeated quotes: "Everyone's coloured or you wouldn't be able to see them". It dates back to the Spotlight Kid era and dances like 'Suction Prints', although it is slower and more melodic.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

1-11 Balladino (2:27:607) AKA 'Ballerino', early version of 'A Carrot Is As Close As A Rabbit Gets To A Diamond'
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Comments:
Gary Lucas: I believe also it should be ... 'Balladino'.
(Fire Party)
Paul Brown: the original title of the piece that was later re-arranged to become 'A Carrot Is As Close As A Rabbit Gets To A Diamond'.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #8)
Mike Barnes: The instrumental ('A Carrot Is As Close As A Rabbit Gets To A Diamond') is a tightened-up version of an earlier piece entitled 'Ballerino'.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

1-12 Clear Spot (Instrumental) (4:46:150) different instrumental version of the song later released on Clear Spot
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba, piano (?)
Comments:
Early instrumental version of 'Clear Spot' based on Bill Harkleroad's guitar.

1-13 Circumstances (9:09:407) new track, different to the 'Clear Spot Outtakes', coming with marimba and different harmonica
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba, piano (?)

1-14 I'm Gonna Booglarize You, Baby (Instrumental) (5:54:142) 2 takes AKA 'Booglarize Jam'
Line-up:
Elliot Ingber: guitar
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums
Comments:
The Rollin' Web: Instrumental Jam. The tape kicks off with a rehearsal/jam that is the basis of 'I'm Gonna Booglarize You Baby'. Yet it is not a backing track awaiting Beefheart's vocals - but it it's 80% there!!! (even if parts of it are a little tentative) Also it has the 1974 'pick-up band's' introduction to 'Mirror Man'. If you listen to the V-Virgin Sampler of the Drury Lane '74 version - there it is!! Not exactly 'note for note' but as near as 'damn-it!!'
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)

1-15 Low Yo Yo Stuff (Instrumental) (6:08:188) slow instrumental version of the song later released on Clear Spot
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums, (overdubbed?)
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
Early instrumental version of 'Low Yo Yo Stuff'. Different start, slow.

1-16 Semi-Multicoloured Caucasian (Version 1) (4:11:118) different version released on Ice Cream For Crow
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: Featuring guitar and inevitably, marimba.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow)

1-17 Little Scratch (Version 2) (2:53:510) AKA 'Natural Charm' AKA early 'The Past Sure Is Tense'
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston or Roy Estrada: bass
Art Tripp: drums, percussion
Comments:
Mike Barnes: The material from the Spotlight Kid era work-in-progress sessions was left aside, apart from 'Little Scratch', which was re-recorded and mixed down for inclusion (on Clear Spot), but again discarded.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

Pompadour Sessions
October-early November 1971
Record Plant Studios, Los Angeles, CA

2-01 Pompadour I (13:54:520) 2 takes
2-02 Pompadour II (12:41:308) 5 takes
Line-up:
Elliot Ingber: guitar
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums, percussion
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
David Lynch: Loose jamming on themes that would become 'Suction Prints', 'Grow Fins', 'Flaming Autograph'.
Colin David Webb: The way in which 'Suction Prints' evolved is also an insight into the way in which the band worked. Bootleg tapes have Winged Eel playing a twenty five minute loose version about 1971. Whether it was specifically written by Beefheart at that length or is Winged Eel experimenting with the basic theme is unclear. The live tours of the post 1972 period begin with a bass introduction that is a variation on the theme. By 1975 it had become a guitar and trombone showcase and by live shows in 1980 it featured guitar and saxophone. Clearly some material did allow for improvisation or change over time.
(Captain Beefheart. The Man And His Music. 1989)
Pete Mulvey: Just listening to the twenty-five minutes of 'Pompadour' you can hear pleasure in the band's playing that does not stay the course to the 'Shiny Beast' version (of 'Suction Prints'). Also you can hear the Rockette Morton bass riff from 'Blabber 'n Smoke' and the Zoot Horn Rollo guitar from 'Booglarize'. Were they created for 'Pompadour'? By whom? This would have edited into an excellent track for the album, and with the references to other tracks, perhaps would have made an overture; revise a few lyrics and stick in a few self-referential solos and we could have had a concept album, and called it Conservation Act 1.
(The Spotlight Kid outtakes. Steal Softly Thru Snow #6)
Mike Barnes: The lengthy 'Pompadour Swamp' is a mixture of strictly composed sections with some looser passages, with Ingber again given the nod to blow his own stacks in extemporization.

3-01 Suzy Murder Wrist (3:47:285) AKA 'Instrumental #3'
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Comments:
Paul Brown: another instrumental sometimes performed live pre 1974.

3-02 U Bean So Cinquo (2:51:291) AKA 'Instrumental #4' AKA 'Obenso Cinco'
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: percussion
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Obenso Cinco' was more commonly known as 'Instrumental #4' featuring a 'guitar and marimba' in unison at the forefront. Again it's a 'stopper and a starter' but this time, a much more 'repetitive riff' and lacking the subtleties we have come to expect from Captain Beefheart. (probably, was work-in-progress?).
(Steal Softly Thru Snow)
Gary Lucas: Don told me the correct spelling of #6 was 'U Bean So Cinquo'--"You've been so FIVE! Hey, Gary, isn't that HIP?" Just what it all meant he never actually said...

3-03 The Witch Doctor Life (3:51:869) AKA 'Instrumental #5'
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums, percussion
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Witch Doctor Life' kicks in next. Starting with a distinctive riff and a more up-tempo piece, very firmly 'a drums, bass and lead guitar piece, this seems to have been the middle period of the tune.
Paul Brown: Drumbo recalls playing it in the 'late 60s' and of course it was to appear in a very different format at the end of Captain Beefheart's career.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)
Mike Barnes: A piece dating back to the Brown Wrapper Sessions. ... 'The Witch Doctor Life' was a long time in the pipeline, Van Vliet working on it then abandoning it over fifteen years. At last it made the grade.

Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
Pete Mulvey: (Beefheart) obviously has great faith in ... 'Little Scratch', although the latter at least changed cosmetically, becoming 'Natural Charm' before it finally achieved release as 'The Past Sure Is Tense', in a much changed format.

The Rollin' Webb: 'Little Scratch' follows, always known as 'Little Scratch' and the instrumental version of the out-take 'Natural Charm'. The guitar has a slight 'echo'y effect with a marimba helping out in the background.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)
Mike Barnes: 'Little Scratch', discarded from both 'The Spotlight Kid' and 'Clear Spot' sessions, resurfaces as 'The Past Sure Is Tense', a much tougher version than its predecessors.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

3-05 Flaming Autograph (4:44:098)
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Flaming Autograph' is next up, and is the shorter version without the fault on 'one of the channels.' (Fairly familiar stuff, but nice to have the name confirmed!) It's another 'marimba and guitar' piece, fairly languid in performance and also fairly repetitive. It was as yet still at a development stage. The end section of the repeated guitar riff has some 'nifty' marimba work.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)
Mike Barnes: ... the serene 'Flaming Autograph'.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

3-06 Love Grip (4:48:176) AKA 'Instrumental #6' "Amen!!"
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: fuzz guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Love Grip' used to masquerade as 'Instrumental #6' with bass introduction followed by a 'fuzz-' lead guitar onto amiddle section with some nice climbing 'guitar' notes. Presumably a 'second guitar' over-dubbed, would have made this a rather tasty completed piece!? (It is difficult to tell if these were intended for more work or not, but the band versions don't feel as complete as the duet on 'A Carrot' or the 'Semi-Multicoloured Caucasian' take - maybe because we know the final versions of them, or maybe because the band pieces tend to be much longer and more in the nature of a jam!?
Paul Brown: Beefheart speaks from the control room at the end "Amen!!" - (sarcastic?) Are they taking too much studio time?
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)

3-07 No Flower Shall Grow (5:44:902) AKA Instrumental #7, jamming on a section of 'Petrified Forest'
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'No Flower Shall Grow' is again no stranger, previously 'Instrumental #7' and known by this title, having sprung from that line of the Decals track 'Petrified Forest'. Now if a single line of one song can create a whole new song, what could he have eventually come up with? Basically - lead, bass and drums, fairy jaunty in tempo but again a lot of repetitive riffs. The likelihood that this was more of a jam; comes at the end when a grumpy Captain Beefheart says from the control room "Ahl right ... I don't want you to have anymore fun on that ... That's it!!!"
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)

3-08 Best Batch Yet (Version 1) 3 takes (3:40:819)
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Best Batch Yet' is the well-known 'early 1970s-version,' with two 'alternate guitar breaks' recorded, (just in case!?). But it was to be some years before the song actually made it to vinyl. This sounds as if it could be the backing track plus two 'possible' solos! ('ready for Captain Beefheart to sing over?')
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)
Mike Barnes: Another song originating from the 1971 sessions is 'Best Batch Yet'. Again, the rearranged version blows holes in the original rough sketch.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

3-09 Your Love Brought Me To Life (4:10:338) 2 takes AKA 'Instrumental #8', somebody saying "let's take it from there, let's take it from your soul ... and touch it in" "alright".
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Your Love Brought Me To Life' features 'guitar and marimba' in a much slower piece. A laboured guitar, with the marimba in-filling, then there's a faster brighter section, with the drums more prominent, then back to the laboured 'guitar and marimba' duet. Again difficult to see it standing as a finished piece? Also, difficult to see it standing as an instrumental - on its own ...!? (but with some cutting down and a second guitar overlay ... ??) It stops abruptly in mid-phrase, then picks up again.
(Steal Softly thru Snow #7)
Paul Brown: This is one of the 'guitar and marimba' slower pieces, probably unfinished.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #8)
Mike Barnes: Tepper looks back with particular fondness on some earlier pieces that never got past the rehearsal stage, which were, in his opinion, some of Van Vliet's most tender and most affecting musical moments: 'Your Love Brought Me To Life' - originally from 1971 - and later pieces like 'Rhino In The Redwoods' and 'Child Ecologist'. The time needed to realize his more complicated pieces, together with the loss of momentum in his career, had left a lot still stuck on the drawing board.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

3-10 That Little Girl (5:18:342) AKA 'Instrumental #9'
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'That Little Girl' starts with some neat guitar picking then continues as a slow-paced number with guitar to the fore again and the marimba occasionally heard in the background. In the middle there's some tentative guitar, trying to find the correct phrase, suggesting another 'work-in-progress,' rather than a finished piece.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)

3-11 Campfires (5:47:664) AKA 'Instrumental #1'
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Comments:
The Rollin' Webb: 'Campfires' was previously known as 'Instrumental #1' (Brown-Star-fast-ish!). It's a lively piece with a strong drums, bass, and lead guitar line-up again. The guitar has a slightly sleazy feel to it, but again it's the repeated riffs that suggest - It is not a finished piece.
(Steal Softly Thru Snow #7)

3-12 Well Well Well (1:57:587) Lick My Decals Off, Baby Outtake
Line-Up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, tenor sax, soprano sax, bass clarinet, harmonica
Mark Boston: bass, vocals
John French: drums
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
Mike Barnes: I still can't find that original fax from Henry Kaiser but he had said that 'Well Well Well' was the only thing from that Decals session which was mixed down for inclusion (onto 2 track from 8 I think) but was rejected. I don't know if this was a rough mix or finished mix but I'm wondering if it was the former. The reason being that there was often a big discrepancy between rough mixes and the finished ones which Don OK'd.
Just think of all the Spotlight Kid outtakes (none of which were properly mixed down) and how they differ from the sound of the finished album. They all sound sharper and less muddy and gloomy than the album. Don was notorious for going for a dry, flat sound with little or no reverb and, in my opinion, wasn't too good behind the mixing desk. And all the Decals instrumental dubs sound a lot different to the album, as we said.
The only two tracks mixed down for possible inclusion on SK were 'Funeral Hill' (short) and an early version of 'Harry Irene'. Again this comes from Kaiser who I can't think would be anything less than ultra-diligent.
Who knows - could Kaiser be wrong? Heaven forbid!
(Fire Party)

3-13 Funeral Hill (Version 3) (3:55:744) abrupt finish
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston or Roy Estrada: bass
Art Tripp: drums, percussion, piano (?)

3-14 Seam Crooked Sam (Version 1) (2:15:360)
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Art Tripp?: maracas
John French: tap-dance
Comments:
Mike Barnes: a rough sketch... dating back to 1972. The only instrumentation on the spartan original was maracas, harmonica and the clattering of French doing his tap-dancing routine.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)

3-14 Alice In Blunderland (3:55:727) instrumental, different version with Ingber's guitar mixed low
Line-up:
Elliot Ingber: guitar
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass guitar
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments:
David Lynch: Ingber's guitar is mixed unreasonably low in this version.

3-15 Funeral Hill (Version 2) (3:17:453) faded
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston or Roy Estrada: bass
Art Tripp: drums, percussion, piano (?)

3-16 Best Batch Yet (Version 2) (2:14:814) different version released on Doc At The Radar Station, begins with, "that is three"
Line-up:
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston: bass
John French: drums
Art Tripp: marimba
Comments: Sounds like take #1 of 'Best Batch Yet (Version 1)' with marimba overdubbed.

3-17 Dirty Blue Gene (Version 2) (3:14:470)
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: guitar
Mark Boston or Roy Estrada: bass
Art Tripp: drums, percussion
Comments:
Mike Barnes: 'Dirty Blue Gene' is another example of material released at last after a lengthy metamorphosis. Its thirteen-year transmutation saw it progress from a good title(which Van Vliet obviously loved) for an instrumental piece recorded in 1967, to completely different music complete with lyrics in 1971 and then a version close to this one (released on Doc At The Radar Station) from the 1972 Clear Spot sessions. With a few minor changes it became the thunderous song on Doc At The Radar Station.

4-04 Sun Zoom Spark (Version 2) (8:28:741)
Line-up:
Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica
Bill Harkleroad: acoustic guitar
Comments:
Colin David Webb: The musical direction at this time is confusing. Bootleg tapes indicate a range of different approaches - straight blues in three gutsy takes of a totally different 'Sun Zoom Spark'; a ripping blues rendition of 'Seam Crooked Sam'; two heavy blues versions of 'Funeral Hill'; and a medley of non-originals featuring 'Scratch My Back', 'Going To The Bottom (Border or Brazos)', 'Keys To The Highway' and 'Grandpa Don't Love Grandma No More'.
(Captain Beefheart. The Man And His Music. 1989)
Mike Barnes: 'Sun Zoom Spark' first came into being on a rambling rehearsal demo, with Van Vliet improvising the words over Harkleroad's guitar lines.
(Captain Beefheart, 2000)
Henry Kaiser: The above is just a blues jam for fun with El and Don. Maybe they thought to get a blues duo jam tune out of 'Sun Zoom Spark' to us as they played it - but they got nothing finished...

Audio/wma, ?/?, (?)

Notes

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Whiskey-A-Go-Go
Los Angeles
California
April 3, 1974

Now I am interested to see how many of you will d/l this beast and if there will be a bootlegger again selling this gig at eBay.

Geoff Geddes: Another 'new' recording has turned up, I have a copy of a gig at The Whisky A Go-Go dated 3rd April 1974. I think this may be the first outing of the 'Tragic Band'. The recording is poor but interesting as you can here the audience getting increasingly frustrated with the music and calling for the old band members. A very valuable piece of history.

Lineage: AUD>?>CD-R>WAV (using Wavelab)>FLAC (using Trader's Little Helper, level 8)

01. Unconditionally Guaranteed (5:38) instrumental
02. Upon The My-O-My (13:50)
03. Crazy Little Thing (3:24)
04. Full Moon Hot Sun (4:40)
05. This Is The Day (6:30)
06. Sugar Bowl (3:10)
07. New Electric Ride (2:37)
08. It's Mighty Crazy (6:57) Lightnin' Slim
09. Sweet Georgia Brown (3:40) sort of Captain's Holiday
10. Peaches (7:02)

Unconditionally Guaranteed is the curious instrumental track which surfaced on several Zappa bootlegs like Metal Man Has Won His Wings or Confidential. Long time this track was attributed to Beefheart Hyde Park '74, which was defintely wrong. I was totally surprised to find it as intro to the first tragic gig.

Total length: 56:46

Quality: 7/10
Issues: the CD-R wasn't mastered very well: lots of digital defects, 2 second gaps between the tracks, 1 second gaps probably from the original tape deleting the most interesting parts, more of the reaction of the crowd. Probably the guy who mastered this one didn't like the gig.
Finally I had to normalize this transfer at low level (-6 dB) to suppress a sometimes rattling sound. But altogether a still enjoyable sound!

Line-up:
Captain Beefheart/Don Van Vliet: vocals, harmonica, saxophone, clarinet
Fuzzy Fuscaldo: rhythm guitar
Ty Grimes: drums
Del Simmons: tenor saxophone, clarinet, flute!
Dean Smith: lead guitar
Michael 'Bucky' Smotherman: keyboards
Paul Uhrig: bass

Comments:
Alan Saul: Sorry, shorthand for the 1974 band that the evil producer Andy DiMartino brought in when the Magic Band quit precipitously. I won't attempt to write the whole sorry history, though it is amusing. Don was mad enough about the Magic Band quitting that he was willing to put up with these guys for awhile, I suspect.
I caught them closely at the beginning when they played the Roxy for a week, and I found it was easy to walk upstairs after each set and hang out with them. Don referred to everybody in the band as Motherbaugh after the actual funny name of the bass player, if I recall correctly. The real (only) star of the group was a middle-aged Italian horn player named Del Simmons. He couldn't play Don's music, but he could entertain pretty well and was a good guy at least. The others seemed pretty much like kids looking to get high all the time.
(alt.fan.capt-beefheart)

Henry Kaiser: In 1973 I went to a gig in LA (I had spoken to Bill a couple of weeks before and planned to see him at the show) but I was completely shattered when the Bluejeans And Moonbeams new and not-so-Magic-Band came out on the stage instead of my friends.
(Henry Kaiser: Foreword to Bill Harkleroad's Lunar Notes)

Connor McKnight: There had been stories from America that presaged the dreadful music he played at the Royal Theatre (London, June 1974): a picket at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go in Los Angeles who warned customers not to go in, and a hectoring lecture to the audience in New York after a less than sensational gig there.
(Connor McKnight: Whatever Happened To The Magic Band? ZigZag #44, August 1974)

Harald Sundt: I later saw the Los Vegas type pick-up band back Beefheart at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go after the Unconditionally Guaranteed era Magic Band broke up ... he seemed so dispirited!
Drugs are no longer an experiment ... they are a way of coping with living in Long Beach California and seeing Peace and Love become party bunnies up so many days they are varnished with funky shine, ants crawling, legs hopping, scalded by their bulging eyes. Bezidrex inhaler felt stems stirred in strong black coffee, mean so mean everywhere its a kind of grim mirth. I drive out to the Whisky-A-Go-Go, (remember Grazarri's Dancers? Black Tee sHirts bouncing boobs banned by biddys from Channel 9 on Friday Nights?). Don is playing with a Los Vegas Quality Lounge Act pick up band with great sad eyes.
At the end I shake his hand, and he says, "This Band has some magic to it!". I smile like a Doctor shaking hands with a family member leaving a hospital room so the patient can be told he's dying.

from http://www.beefheart.com/datharp/albums/boots/capthook.htm :

This is the FM broadcast Cowtown show that was also booted as 'Crazy Little Things'. However it does also include a version of 'Sam with the showing scalp...' from a May 1975 Bongo Fury tour and a great 'Grow Fins' from an unknown venue in 1977. Both 'Sam' and 'Fins' sound as if they were dubbed from vinyl - 'Sam' could well be from the Los Botas Graciosas Marchan Polonia boot.

From original djscomics notes (with his DIME seeds):
Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.
He recorded many of the major 70's bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several "under the radar" acts.
Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ'ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.
Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.
The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.
Always remember - the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

Happy Halloween ! This should be an upgrade to most. It is the best copy that I have heard so far. Of course, if you have better . . . share it. A couple of things . . there is a cut within 'My Human Gets Me Blues' and there was a tape flip during 'Drumbo's Tapdance'. There are some click and pops on the latter part of the tape. That is how my tape is. I do not "clean up" recordings ( although I will correct spped issues, none here ), just simple raw transfers. Anyhow, the extra noises are not that bad at all, just mentioning it. Ok . . . .

Overall sound quality is very good. As far as 1975 Beefheart tapes go, it is one of the better sounding for sure. The first song 'Moonlight On Vermont' is a little bit rough soundwise, but everything quickly settles in and the rest of the show sounds great. The performance is pretty excellent and the vocals are loud and clear. I know many fans really like this show,largely due to Don's vocals throughout the performance. He makes it quite clear that he is not happy with the p.a. system, but despite that, he really give it his all. A very exciting listen for sure. The 'Orange Claw Hammer' here is really swell. Elliot whips out some nice licks during 'Natchex Burning', followed by a smokin' slide solo by Denny. Excellent stuff. Lots of good banter with the crowd here. Enjoy the show.

NEVER FOR SALE. FREE / TRADE ALWAYS AND ONLY. THANK YOU.

Comments:
Dave Lynch: Despite intermittent microphone problems and poor mixing which results on the trombone hardly being heard, this is a great show - Don's voice is at the strongest I've heard.

Dave Lynch: Formerly available on the Radar Station. A forgotten Magic Band formed from the ashes of Zappa's 'Bongo Fury' lineup. Denny Walley on scorching slide guitar, Bruce Fowler on 'Air Bass' (trombone- the 'Golden Birdies' from this tour must be heard), DRUMBO!, fun improvisation, a fantastic take on 'Natchez Burning', and Don's voice in true PA-blowing form.
(Fire Party)

Michael R. Godwin: Just listened to 'Natchez Burning' from Copenhagen. What's going on there? It really sounds as if Don is being given the bird, especially when he grumbles about the vocal level (which is already way up). Can anyone elucidate?
(Fire Party)

Graham Johnston: This show is simply astonishing, demonstrating the full raw power of the live Magic Band at its very best on a Halloween night, with the Captain seemingly intent on ripping out his vocal cords. Take a deep breath and dive in ...

Comments:
Andy Bean: November 22 1975 Aylesbury Friars...my third ever gig (Hawkwind, then Knebworth...)... great. Highlight was Drumbo's tapdance, low point was the rather boistrous audience, some of whom insisted on shouting 'Captain Beefheart shags Alsatians' throughout the set! Hey, I was a young boy, I had a great time!
(Fire Party)

Steve Froy: First, we had to endure the support band 'Secret Oyster' - anyone remember them? I wish I didn't. They were the remnants of a once fairly fine Danish band 'Burnin Red Ivanhoe' but they were now a pompous prog-rock band of the most tedious kind with a keyboard player who'd obviously got some new equipment with lots of new noises he could play with and pretend to be Keith Emerson (and who needs another one of them) ...
.. but to cut to the chase ...
The last time I'd seen Don was in 1973 with that great storming Magic Band. Since then I had become somewhat disillusioned because he seemed to have lost the plot completely - by that I mean releasing the distressing albums Unconditionally Guaranteed and Bluejeans & Moonbeams. However there had been some good news in that he was touring with the Mothers (had I heard Bongo Fury by this time ... I'm not sure?) and he had played at Knebworth (which I have to admit being at but must have been too far gone to remember any of it apart from the opening drum beats of Moonlight on Vermont and a few other snatches of songs!!). So going to see him again now was worrying me - would he be any good? ... would my faith be restored? ... who would be in the Magic Band?
When the band finally took the stage they seemed tired - which is not surprising after driving down from Scotland. It soon became apparent there was an anti-Captain element in the audience. My recollections of the first part of the gig - lazy, lack-lustre and out-of-tune - playing, are coloured by the bad atmosphere created by this small bunch of tossers. I know it was not unusual for Don to be heckled - I'm just ashamed I had to witness it. If this happened regularly I'm surprised Don didn't give up touring a lot earlier. He got so exasperated with interruptions during Orange Claw Hammer he ended up shouting "Fuck you, man" and during Beatle bones .. he stared one guy down, leant forward with microphone in one hand, pointed straight at him and beckoned him to come closer - not surprisingly Don's offer was declined. Eventually the hecklers gave up/crawled back under their stones/turned back into pumpkins and for me a cloud lifted. It seemed as if the band sensed it too because the performance took on a greater urgency and conviction.
(Having since heard a tape of the gig I was pleasantly surprised to hear just how good the music was - the first part was definitely nowhere as bad as I'd remembered.)
I remember thinking that the set list seemed odd. But maybe that was due to lack of rehearsal time - presumably Poofters Froth Wyoming was only included because most of the band knew it from the Bongo Fury tour with Zappa and the blues jam section was a filler and geared to Winged Eel Fingerling and Denny Whalley's abilities. This Magic Band was not the best by any means, although it had the great advantage of John French in his Drumbo seat. But they made a good showing of Beatle bones .., My human gets me .. and Electricity. Bruce Fowler's 'air-bass' didn't really cut it for me on the break in Abba Zabba but for the rest of the set it provided a unusual throbbing undertow.
One of the more bizarre highlights of this tour at each gig had to be Drumbo's Tap dance ... every drummer at this time was expected to do a solo - but they usually had a vast battery of drums, snares, cymbals, gongs etc etc. So it was rather incongruous when Drumbo started going to town on his very small kit. It then became hilarious as, banging his feet on the stage to create more sounds, he eventually stood up and tap danced his way around the stage accompanied by some cheesy trombone from Bruce Fowler. It had to be seen to be appreciated - the perfect antidote to the pomposity of rock drummers and drum solos.
Overall this gig was not a great one, although it had its moments. But I came away at the end reassured that Don was back on the right track again after the Tragic Band episode.

Another super show here. One of my favorites. I have two sets of both the Early and Late Shows for this night. According to a notebook I kept back in the mid-90's one set was
2nd gen the other 3rd gen. For whatever reason I did not mark the actual tapes. I compared the tapes and picked what I think is the better sounding version. They ran a bit fast, so I corrected the speed. After many sessions messing around with the recording I am now very
happy with the end result. It sounds great ! A very even mix of all players and Don. The bass sounds very nice here. ( Keeping in mind that I listen to music on stereos most all of the time. Then again, I am listening to this show now on my pc as I type all this and it sounds sweet. ) Easily among the best sounding of the 1977 tapes.

This was the first tour that Robert Williams was playing drums in the band. Denny Walley is still in the band and the version of " China Pig / Hoboism " here is amazing. Among the best live performances I have heard. The way Don throws his voice all around is just crazy. This is another show in which Don is in what seems to be a very good mood. Relaxed. Also very chatty. The banter throughout is really great and often funny. When an audience member asks where is ( what happened ) to Drumbo, Don offers up an interesting answer. Don also really enjoyed the chocolate pie at this club. Hahaha. Nice.

" On Tomorrow " get cut a bit short due to an electrical malfunction.
The ending of "Owed T' Alex" is cut short due to a tape flip.

ENJOY THE SHOW.

Alastair Dickson: The following year, I seem to recall that the Magic Band played Paris, either financed by or at a benefit for a French Trotskyist group ... And continuing on interesting concerts, around 77, wasn't there a double-headed Magic Band and Prime Time concert? That would have been wonderful, given that they were the only two bands to be operating a sound based on 2 guitars playing very different lines.
[alt.fan.capt-beefheart]

Alastair Dickson: On the subject of Captain Beefheart outside the English speaking world, I have this vague memory that a Magic Band circa 76 was scheduled for a concert in Paris but not the UK etc. My recollection was that this was at some kind of festival organised by a French Trotskyist party. Anyone confirm this or tell me that my memory's faulty?
[alt.fan.capt-beefheart]

Robert Williams: One of my favorite shows was the one we played in Paris on November 11th, 1977 at the Hippodrome. There were ten thousand kids under the big top that night.
[Scott McFarland: WAIT FOR ME! Robert Williams Pants Out. Private source. Early 1997]

John Gray: How did it go in Paris at the Hippodrome?
Don Van Vliet: The people were dancing to Trout Mask Replica music! I mean dancing! In France!
[John Gray: Dancing With the Captain. The Bat Chain Puller Is Flushed With Optimism. Sounds. December 12, 1977]

John Morthland: He's feeling particularly sprightly right now - just came from Paris, where he played before 10,000 at a National Socialist Party music festival, the highlight of a tour that's done quite well despite there being no new album in the stores or record label behind him. In truth, this could conceivably be his time. Earlier in his career, he was the number one weirdo for audiences that prized weird above and beyond all else. That's a lot of baggage to carry, and in more subdued times such as these, perhaps his music can be taken strictly on its own terms and viewed as the unique, vital stuff that it is.
[John Morthland: The Number One Weirdo Comes Back To Earth. Gig, February 1978]

John Orme: Don Van Vliet is a happy man. A fortnight ago he brought his new Magic Band to Paris for its European debut, and although the gig is now three days away, it is easier to whistle a dance-along selection from Trout Mask Replica than to stop him talking about the success of the concert and the band.
Don Van Vliet: This band is so good - the best I have ever had! They play with a smile. They really breathe up there when they are playing. After all this time I have finally found the band I'm looking for. It's amazing! Playing with this group is like going for a walk: they are so happy when they play. People I meet from the audience have been coming up and telling me how pleased they are that I have finally found a band that I am content with - and they are right.
The gig we played in Paris was monstrous. It was three days ago, but I haven't slept since - it was so good! And my voice, well, I can still feel that show in my voice. It hit me so hard I am down to three octaves .... I couldn't get over the way the audience was singing along with it, singing the words back at me in English - and I don't speak a word of french.
This group, I tell you, I couldn't believe that there were such nice people still around on this earth. True, they are playing what I have written, but they really are playing. This band is moving so fast that very soon I won't have to tell them anything. I really must say: this band is the best ....
[John Orme: Captain Horn-Blower. Melody Maker, December 12, 1977]

Don Van Vliet: I played a thing in France - a festival. There were ten thousand people in the rain, and me under a thing where the rain didn't hit me. I was feeling sorry for the people in the rain. Things like that are hard if you're at all feeling. I apologised at least twelve times, I probably bored everyone to tears. That's not good business. god, that was terrible. It's wonderful to see people out in the rain, but not with me under a canopy. Do you know how cold it was that night? It would freeze the fur on a
fishing pole, I'll tell you that. Contact lenses would be frightening in that kind of cold. I think it must have been at least ten below.
[Byron Coley: Captain Beefheart Pulls A Hat Out Of His Rabbit. New York Rocker #18, January 1979]

Great show with a great setlist, from one of his comeback tours, in which he proved to still be the great Captain everybody knew and loved. This is, apparently, a second source compared than the one perviously circulating. I don't know how this compares to the other source, as I don't have it, but this is from the master and sounds pretty nice. This version, anyway, apparently misses the last three songs ("Veteran's Day Poppy", "The Blimp" and "Big Eyed Beans from Venus"), which, unfortunately, I don't have.

This is a re-tracked re-seed of the recent dimeadozen seed. If you want to help seeding, rename everything as above and trash files 01, 06, 19 and the fingerprints.

Notes

This is a slight upgrade of the torrent found here:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=264665

It has been prepared for us by Professorgoody...here is what he did:

"This show has now been tuned, as it ran quite fast/sharp in any previous editions, and the tracks now all start with music, rather than long applauses and silences. I haven't applied any noise reduction or EQ to any of this. The music is untouched, other than the necessary pitch correction done to the whole thing to the best of my ability. That, in turn, slowed it down a bit in the process, back to where it was first performed and heard. "I believe I'm presenting this in much better condition than that in which it currently circulates."

"I wish I knew the name of the original taper and seeder for this set from when I got it in 2005 so I could thank him/her. I imagine I did at the time I got it in one of these DimeEZ incarnations. It was a very well preserved source, considering the date and probable circumstances, although not without some hiss. Perhaps they'll leave a comment and say "Hi!"

"Thanks to Cyrus who seeded the version at Dime which proceeded this, from his own traded source, but which we confirmed to be as close to identical as we could determine. I really like the teamwork and camaraderie here among the whole Dime community! So glad to be able to get another classic back out to the world in the best condition available."

As all of my shares are, these tapes are sourced from my collection. I believe that this will be an upgrade to most who have it. As great as these shows sound, my copies ran very,
very slow. They now sound like they should !

The first of two shows performed on this night. Both sound very nice/excellent. The second one sounding slightly better. Both sets are really great. The crowd is very into the music and are largely quiet during the performance, which makes for some amazing live "fade-outs" . . . in fact, check out the end of "Owed T' Alex" here . . . WOW ! Needless to say, Bruce Fowler is incredible. The Air-Bass is super !

After Don recites " The Dust Blows Forward . ." he tells the crowd how great they are because of the fact that they stayed quiet during the piece for him. ( The version of " Well " from the second show is crazy amazing and again Don lets the crowd know that he thinks they are wonderful. ) HEADS UP . . the "Bass Solo" at the begining of the encore is a little bit loud, seems the taper hit record at the last second. It will not mess up your speakers or whatever, but it is a bit of a jolt ;) ( very thick bass sound ! ).

As with any show in which Don is comfortable, he really lets loose. I think these shows fall into that category. Enjoy.

As always, much thanks to the Taper of these excellent shows and much thanks to all my old trading pals from many years ago.

A good show from fairly early into the first leg of the 1980/81 Tour. Very cool vocals on " Safe As Milk ", pretty intense actually. Cool little horn solo during the last part of " Sheriff Of Hong Kong ". Hot Head is a bit "off" here and has a different feel that most other versions performed on this tour. Enjoy.

The top of Doctor Dark is cut due to a tape flip. According to the old database, there were two shows on this date. This is the only recording I have in the collection. On my cassette it is not note if this is either a late or early show.

I also decided to add an extra to this torrent/share. Included is a text file of an email "interview" I did with Richard Snyder back during some point in 1997 or 1998. It has never been on posted any websites or anywhere else, only a few friends have read it. It is pretty neat. Enjoy !

Here are some quotes from the old database about this show . . . ( thanks D. for all of your hard work ) > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > >

*******************************************************************************************
Dave Lang: I have to agree that live was the best experience, if only because of the tremendous personalities of the various magic band members, the whole band oozed charisma and the cap'n especially. I also agree that the Jeff Morris Tepper band kicked ass, I thoroughly enjoyed the 1980 show I saw at Loughborough, tremendous playing.
[FireParty]

Geoff Geddes: By 1980 technology had moved on and the Loughborough tape is of excellent audience tape quality (B+?), the good atmosphere at this show is evident and the nature of the small Loughborough Student Union Bar make the music sound loud and effective. Audience noise is limited to people pushing through to the bar at the back of the room 'scuse me, scuse me' etc. You can also hear our discussions between numbers but these could easily be edited out.
The audience was split between Beefheart fans who had come from all over the East Midlands to see their man and the regular student union crowd who would turn up on any Saturday night to drink at the bar and 'listen' to who ever happened to be playing. Even in 1980 there must of been a ten to twenty year age gap between the two halves of the audience. Being students they have tendency to show off and offer scant regard to any act that happened to be on. However it is wonderful to hear how the Captain won over this audience, helped by the glowers and threatening looks of the true fans who did not want some nerdy young students wrecking the set. The Captain was treated with due respect and given a rousing greeting when he came on stage, you can here him remark "Better than London". The students were a bit bemused by the poetry, this was not exactly ZZ Top and they found it difficult to concentrate, note the shout of "Who shot JR?" during the reading, an interesting contemporary reference since the Dallas Series was the big TV talking point in the UK at this time.
The music is wonderful, full of energy and invention. Sugar 'n Spikes is outstanding, I think it is my favorite version of this number. At the time I thought it not as good as previous gigs I had been to but this was just the jaded view of a long time fan still missing Rocket Morton and the old Magic Band. With the passing of the years the tape now sounds just fine to me. ********************************************

Source: 2 Sennheiser MKH 404-tu microphones > Sony D5M w/ Dolby > Maxell MX-90 cassette

Transfer of master: Nakamichi CR3A w/ Dolby > Audigy 4 Pro @ 24/44.1
Editing with NERO > Audacity (16-44) > CD Wave > TLH (Flac level 8)
song information embedded with Stamp ID3 tag editor


I recorded this show not long after meeting Don in the record store that I worked at (Slipped Disc Records in the Los Angeles suburb of the San Fernando Valley).
I remember asking him for permission to record this show but also remember that he did not give it to me.
So with a small bit of guilt I borrowed my friend John’s recording gear and snuck it into the Whiskey anyhow.
Set up in stealth at a table about 15 feet from the stage.
Lucky for us that we were not discovered.
The Captain was not fond of being captured live by amateur recorders and was known to make a big scene when he discovered someone doing this.
I sort of remember placing the microphones on the table and covering them with a jacket and this would be the source of the ruffling noises that can be heard during the quiet parts between songs.
Some of the worst of this ruffling noise was after the first song.
Some editing was done to remove this noise and to splice together the tape flip and then blend the audience sections back together to make a seamless transition.
Also employed the NERO wave editor to remove the loudest explosive clapping by deleting one clap at a time.

This may not be too heavily circulated. It will be an upgrade to most everyone.

I know of an incomplete audience source that many people likely have. I do not have that version. That tape cuts off after Sheriff Of Hong Kong. That is the tape listed at the old Beefheart Database ( thanks D. I still use the site for research ! ). Assuming that the information from the old database is correct, the "aud" version also begins with "Nowaday's . . . ".

Considering that nearly all of ( if not all ) of the shows from the 80/81 DOC TOUR began with a Bass Solo, the "Bass Solo / Hair Pie" may be missing from this recording.
The first couple of beats of "Nowaday's . . ." are missing and it cuts in. No big deal,
we are talking a few seconds.

I have two copies of the Soundboard version here in the Archives. The better copy out of the two was missing the encores. They were very close in overall quality, but I went with the first source for the main show. Lucky for me ( and you ! ) my second source had the encores. The main portion of the show ( tracks 01-20 ) ran very, very fast. The second source ran very slow. After I transferred the cassettes I used Audacity to correct the speed. I think it sounds pretty right on. This was the first time I had bothered with(tried) speed correction. I am happy with the results and I think most will agree. I'm pretty good at this point with video and authoring dvds. As far as audio, I just do what I can. Considering that I have had no complaints after many shares, I guess I am doing ok. Heh heh heh.

Much thanks to the person that traded me this tape many years ago and also thanks to my local buddy Greg for the second source (for the encores). Also, much thanks to the original taper who got a board patch ! Awesome.

It's funny, the trading world, the better copy I have here was sent to me from Europe and the other copy from Greg ( who was at the show ) came from where we live, in Portland ! Neat-o !

I think the overall sound quality here is very good / great. The mix is well balanced and all instruments are heard clearly, including the vocal. Don seems relaxed here and having some fun. His mood seems rather playful on this evening. His only complaints are about the stage lighting and people smoking clove cigs ( he also mentioned that at the Seattle show a few days before ). If you listen closely and follow the lyrics he makes a few funny remarks here and there. He is also very chatty throughout the show. Several funny remarks and he also mentions the volcano eruption that happend up here around that time. Pretty cool ! I've been listening to this show as I am creating this text file . . . great set and it sounds super ! I hope you all enjoy the show.

Many folks have copies of these tracks in one form or another. I have collected many different versions over the years. I believe that the recordings I have here still sound best to my ears, so because of that I figured I would share them. Last year I shared these copies with a longtime, hardcore trader ( for a second opinion ) and he also agreed. They sound awesome. See what you think ! You might agree, you might not. Either way, the sound here is Excellent. I transferred 2 of the tapes as they are. Raw. No eq, noise reduction. Nothing. Straight transfer. Same running order as the cassettes. The titles are also as written on my tapes. ( I have seen different titles or variations of words for several of the tracks here. ) ENJOY ! ! !

Captain Beefheart - Vocals/harp/horns
Zoot Horn Rollo - Guitar

Rockette Morton - Bass, Guitar
Winged Eel Fingerling - Guitar ( solos ) ( I know this because many years ago I gave copies of these tapes to Zoot and he told me that was who played the solos ).
