Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band: Safe As Milk

(SUNDAZED) 18 tracks - 180 Gram Mono Edition Pressed at RTI!

Captain Beefheart’s 1967 debut album Safe As Milk introduced the world to a one-of-a-kind visionary whose unique output had no precedent in contemporary music. Beefheart, aka Don Van Vliet, filtered the raw influence of the blues and R&B through his own singular musical sensibility and left-field lyrical wordplay, and surrounded himself with some of the most talented and inventive young musicians around. The result was an album that, even in the heady year in which it was released, sounded like nothing else, and the stage for one of rock’s most iconoclastic and idiosyncratic careers. With backup from the first, and perhaps finest, incarnation of Beefheart’s legendary Magic Band (including future solo star Ry Cooder on guitar and teenage drum prodigy John “Drumbo” French), and production from future studio superstar Richard Perry, Beefheart unveils his fully-formed sound and vision on such landmark tracks as “Zig Zag Wanderer,” “Abba Zaba,” “Dropout Boogie,” “I’m Glad” and “Electricity” (covered two decades later by Sonic Youth).

Now released on LP and CD by Sundazed Music, this landmark album now sounds the way it was meant to sound, thanks to the restoration of Perry’s rare original—and, to most fans, superior—mono mix, which was later altered by Beefheart’s label without the artist’s involvement. Both the LP and CD version of this definitive edition feature authoritative new liner notes by Rolling Stone editor and longtime Beefheart enthusiast David Fricke. “In mono, Safe As Milk is a powerful, concentrated revelation,” Fricke writes, further noting, “Safe As Milk promised comfort, exotic nourishment and rude health—and delivered. Created in a year rich in historic debuts and transformative statements about rock’s dynamic and expressive possibilities, Safe As Milk was so far in it was out.”

"Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band"

 

Gegründet 1964 in Kalifornien.

Er ist ohne Zweifel eine der eigentümlichsten Musikerpersönlichkeiten, die die Rockszene aufweisen kann - Captain Beefheart alias Don Van Vliet, Dichter, Maler, Sänger, Mundharmonikaspieler, Saxophonist. Wenn man hört, dass für Captain Beefheart alles mit Frank Zappa begann, rundet sich der Kreis, denn wo sonst könnten Freaks sich so formieren, wie unter Franks Flügeln. 1963 zog Zappa mit seiner Schar in die Wüste, um einen Film zu drehen, dessen Hauptrolle Don als Captain Beefheart spielen sollte. Aus dem Film wurde nichts - aber musikalisch ging's danach für alle weiter. Zappa baute seine Mothers of lnvention auf, Don seine Magic Band, mit der er bisher 6 LPs einspielte, doch wissen Kenner mindestens noch von der gleichen Zahl unveröffentlichter Platten, die bei den verschiedensten Firmen in den Archiven liegen.

Seine Magic Band ist der Tummelplatz der seltsamsten Musiker mit den seltsamsten Instrumenten: da spielt Zoot Horn Rollo die „Glass Finger Guitar', und eine „steelappendage guitar', die vorher schon Antannae Jimmy Semens bis zu seinem Ausscheiden gespielt hatte. Rockette morton spielt den „Bassus Orphelius'. Zur Magic Band gehörte auch einmal„The Mascara Snake', Schwager von Captain Beefheart. Beefheart selbst, Sänger mit angeblich 7 Oktaven, der mit seinem Stimmvolumen und Umfang selbst die irrsten Popschreihälse zu piepsenden Mäuschen machen kann, brüllt, heult, grunzt vor diesem musikalischen Backing seine Songs ~ Klassiker allzumal, wie den „Dropout Boogie', den „Zig Zag Wanderer', „Beatle Bones N' Smoking Stones', den „Dachau Blues' oder den „Buggy Boogie Woogie'.
