TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Doc At The Radar Station’ – By CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND THE MAGIC BAND…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Doc At The Radar Station’ by CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & HIS MAGIC BAND
Released: August 1980 / Eleventh longplayer

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE wrote: “Captain Beefheart once said of his music, “I’m just throwing up / in tie-dye.” If so, then Doc at the Radar Station, released in 1980, is one of the most colorful, and pivotal, records in his singular catalog. Poised on the cusp of a new decade, Beefheart (a.k.a. Don Van Vliet) poured out his innards in Technicolor for Doc at the Radar Station, serving up his most colorful and caustic verse in years on a sprawling, distinctively Beefheartian platter of corrosive avant-rock, jungle-blues squawk, alien-guitar romanticism
and willful, yet often playful, atonality.”
Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: One of the original voices ever. His vocal and sonic vision on the good old blues was quite innovative, bizarre, and freakish and blood-curdling at times. The Captain & his band still sound like nothing else and about a thousand bands are still trying to copy Beefheart’s genial madness today.
