Captain beefheart his magic band diddy wah diddy


Thus it's very gratifying to say that Captain Beefheart's new album is a total success, a brilliant, stunning enlargement and clarification of his art. Which is not to say that it's in any sense slick, "artistic," or easy. This is one of the few bands whose sound has actually gotten rawer as they've maturedâ€"a brilliant and refreshing strategy. Again the rhythms and melodic textures jump all over the place (in the same way that Cecil Taylor's do), Beefheart singing like a lonesome werewolf screaming and growling in the night. The songs clatter aboutâ€"given a superficial listening, they seem boring and repetitious. It's perhaps the addition of saxophones (all played by the five men in the band) that first suggests what's really happening here and always has been happening in this group's music.

The original United States release of the album was in a specially-produced clear plastic sleeve. The title Clear Spot was embossed on the front flap, with the record clearly visible inside without a liner. This reflected the title: a "clear" cover with the black vinyl disc as a visible "spot." The original concept was for the disc to be of clear vinyl, but this was abandoned due to financial constraints. [2] The package also included a white card insert, with the band name and credits. For the UK this was a single weight card, but in the US issues this was back-to-back card with radius corners at the foot.
