The Captain hits the spot,
This review is from: The Spotlight Kid/Clear Spot (Audio CD)
Terrific stuff! This double CD is the link between the 60's beat combo sound of Safe As Milk and the unique weirdness of Trout Mask Replica. It's bluesy, jerky, humourous ,spiky, organic and not as overtly commercial as Unconditionally Guaranteed (an album many long-term Beefheart fans loathe). It also includes the famous "long, lunar note" played by Mr.Zoot Horn Rollo. Capt.Beefheart never wanted to contribute to the sameness of everything and he's certainly doing his own thing on these two albums. Buy them and enjoy them for yourself. I can't stop playing them!
