FIRST POSTED IN 2007 There’s no shortage of live Captain Beefheart floating around. Quality live Captain Beefheart is another matter. By virtue of its outstanding sound quality, this Rhino Handmade 2000 release stands as the best overall concert recording you can find of the good Captain and one of his Magic Bands. Recorded November 11th, 1978 for a radio broadcast on WLIR in New York, this complete, 85 minute show features the ’78 version of The Magic Band, with Jeff Moris Tepper on guitar and Bruce Fowler, late of the Mothers, on trombone. They were on the road to promote the Captain’s return-to-form LP, Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) (HERE, in the archives). How good do they sound? Note the slow, flawless fade-out they execute on the opening number, “Tropical Hot Dog Night.” After that, it’s a satisfying mix of old, new and obscure with Van Vliet sounding musically at home after his two misguided commercial albums for Mercury Records. Listen for the hula part in “Safe As Milk,” below. The limited edition run sold out long ago, so your disc options now are Ebay, Amazon (HERE) and a boatload of money. Find tons of Captain Beefheart, The Magic Band & solo albums in the archives, HERE.
