Sort of like Trout Mask Light

Wanderer

This single album followed Trout Mask Replica. The music has the same general style and sound although it is a tighter, less experimental, and more accessible (sort of) album. That still doesn't make it everyone's cup of tea. Yes, it was hard to find for a long time, but you may or may not be glad you found it. Favorites are #1-#3, #6, #7, #10, #12, #15. #1 and #3 may be must haves as representative numbers of one of rock history's greatest eccentrics.

FINALLY Available Again

MadDogM13

After many years when the only copies of this you could find were very expensive CDs, the Captain's other early masterpiece is now available again. This is more approachable than "Trout Mask" and just as brilliant a re-examination of the roles of rhythm, poetry, and melody lines in the music (not to mention sex, the blues, and the world of nature outside of homo sapiens). Also has the most beautiful of all Beefheart's beautiful solo guitar pieces, "One Red Rose That I Mean," played by Zoot Horn Rollo (who would go on to make big bank on his insider accounts of working with the Captain and what a creative fascist the man was).

Best Beefheart ever

Crippelift

This album has been out of print for a long time, with used cds going for $50+ on ebay. This is the first Beefheart album I heard and it's still my favorite, better the Trout Mask IMHO. Maybe my favorite album of all time. Why did they wait until Don died before releasing it again?

What If The Grateful Dead Weren’t

By Sean Fennessey, Contributor

The Grateful Dead are a peculiar entity, and tough to think about critically because they exist almost entirely as their own subculture. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones are similarly successful, massive revenue-generating groups, but they defined culture at large. Everyone can find ways to wrap themselves in the subtext of those bands or, in the least, find songs that they admire. The Dead are a different thing; with fans of the group comes a… more »

New Blues Rising: The Black Keys

By John Morthland, Contributor

The Black Keys are easily the freshest thing to happen to blues in this millennium, but you can't really call them a blues band. But then, neither can you call the duo — drummer Patrick Carney and guitarist/vocalist David Auerbach — a rock band. Or even a blues-rock band in the conventional sense of the term. Their music is garage rock that knows that blues is at the very heart of rock, and it is… more »

Blueslore #02: The Natchez Fire

By John Morthland, Contributor

The Moneywasters Social Club had sold 557 tickets (50 cents in advance, 65 at the door) to its dance at the Rhythm Club in Natchez, Mississippi, on April 23, 1940. Tiny Bradshaw's orchestra, originally scheduled to play, had cancelled when a booking came through at the Apollo Theater in Harlem for the same night. The replacement was Walter Barnes 'Sophisticated Swing Orchestra, but nobody in Natchez's black community of about 9600 people was complaining. Clarinetist… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Produced by Captain Beefheart himself, Lick My Decals Off, Baby was a further refining and exploration of the musical ideas posited on Trout Mask Replica. As such, the imaginative fervor of Trout Mask is toned down somewhat, but in its place is an increased self-assurance; the tone of Decals is also a bit darker, examining environmental issues in some songs rather than simply concentrating on surreal wordplay. Whatever the differences, the jagged, complex rhythms and guitar interplay continue to amaze. Those wanting to dig deeper after the essential Trout Mask Replica are advised to begin doing so here. – Steve Huey
