Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band Clear Spot on 180g LP

In the wonderfully idiosyncratic discography of the-one-of-a-kind artist Captain Beefheart (aka Don Van Vliet), attention usually focuses on the carefully wrought, experimental music heard on his noted 1969 masterwork Trout Mask Replica. As a consequence, the three stellar albums recorded soon after - Lick My Decals Off, Baby (1970), The Spotlight Kid (1972) and Clear Spot (1972) - are often criminally overlooked.

Rhino rectified that with the limited edition box set Sun, Zoom, Spark 1970-1972 which revisits the albums Beefheart recorded with the Magic Band in the early-70s. It included all three albums, which were remastered for the first time, as well as an entire LP featuring 14 previously unissued outtakes from the era. Now they're offering remastered individual pressings of Lick My Decals Off, Baby, The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot on 180g vinyl.

1972's Clear Spot is the seventh album by Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band. Ted Templeman, already riding high with the Doobie Brothers and soon to be known as Van Halen's producer, was brought in and it resulted in one of Beefheart's best-sounding records. It's also one of the rare occasions when Beefheart's music survived commercial staging without failure. Highlights include "Nowadays a Woman's Got to Hit a Man" and "Her Eyes Are a Blue Million Miles" among others.
