CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & HIS MAGIC BAND : Lick My Decals Off, Baby LP + Demos

Photobucket
That fleeting yatter of Trout Mask Replica back there put me in mind of it's immediate follow-up, 1970's monstrous Lick My Decals Off, Baby. Decals, reputedly, remains Beefheart's highest UK charting album (reaching #20, due largely to Peel's tireless patronage), was brought to you c/o Zappa's Straight imprint & is, apparently, The Captain's personal favourite of all his LPs. Though more honed & reigned-in than it's predecessor, it's still wildly experimental & way off the trad. rock radar. And it's still not available in HMV (bad vuggum). I've appended it with a bunch of interesting Decals' demos & session outtakes , courtesy of Hal's Progressive Rock blog. Hoi-hoi!
