Upon signing with A&M Records, Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band debuted loudly, recording two singles in 1966, cementing their image as Sunset Strip "blues fiends" and paving the way for what was to become one of the most original careers in rock history.

The band's cover of Bo Diddley's "Diddy Wah Diddy" garnered significant regional attention and considerable radio play courtesy of the Captain's unreal howl and Jerry Handley's deep, thundering bass sound, while the driving delta tributes "Who Do You Think You're Fooling" and "Frying Pan" sharply displayed the Captain's early songwriting prowess. While the Magic Band's musical course were soon to evolve in drastic and original ways, it's these early sides that depict a developed blues foundation and a signature tightness that was threaded through all Magic Bands to come.

Sundazed now proudly presents these legendary recordings in a double 7″ 45rpm gatefold edition, all sides cut from the original A&M mono masters.
