...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Captain Beefheart Material Treated to 'Sun Zoom Spark' Box Set

Following the release of Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band's seminal Trout Mask Replica in 1969, the artist cranked out three more LPs. Those included 1970's Lick My Decals Off, Baby along with 1972's one-two punch of The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot.
