Captain Beefheart is the subject of a feature that we are planning for early in 2013. As a taster, here is a video of one of his better known songs.
Recorded in 1967, this track from the first album by Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band features the then teenage prodigy Ry Cooder on guitar. Reminiscent of the riff from Muddy Waters Rollin’ and Tumblin’, Sure ’nuff ‘n Yes I Do is delta blues with a heavy dose of LSD. Play loud.
