TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) by Sonic Visionary… CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND THE MAGIC BAND

Remarkable albums from the past

‘Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)’
CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND THE MAGIC BAND

Released: October 1978
Tenth longplayer

ULTIMATE ROCK CLASSIC wrote: “After Beefheart and old friend Frank Zappa made an album together (‘Bongo Fury’) in 1975, the Captain recorded an LP called ‘Bat Chain Puller’ for Zappa’s label. But a legal dust-up with Zappa’s manager resulted in Zappa withholding the master tapes to the record. So Beefheart, with yet another new Magic Band, re-recorded the songs and released them as ‘Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)’ in 1978. It was his best album since 1970’s ‘Lick My Decals Off, Baby’ and the start of a creative rebirth, following 1974’s double duds ‘Unconditionally Guaranteed’ and ‘Bluejeans & Moonbeams’) that lasted until his retirement in the mid-’80s. (Incidentally, the original Zappa version of the album eventually came out in 2012.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME: One word = genial.
