Captain Beefheart - Electricity (1998) Retail CD
Prog-Rock/ Art Rock
Electricity consists of extensive extracts from Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band's earliest album recordings, Safe As Milk and Strictly Personal. Both were recorded for the Buddah label, with A&M having rejected the band's demo tapes as too disconcertingly far out. Ironically, by his later standards, tracks like "Zig Zag Wanderer" and "Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes I Do" sound relatively straight--gruff, R&B-influenced onslaughts, featuring Ry Cooder on slide guitar. Beefheart's voice and lyrical preoccupations, however, are already highly distinctive--he hollers like a 300-year-old bluesman with a Lewismore… Carroll-inspired, childlike view of the world. By the time of Strictly Personal and tracks like "Trust Us" and "Moody Liz", The Magic Band were jamming their way into some very odd terrain indeed, a sort of modernist, cubist take on raw blues. Indeed, these were the blueprints for Beefheart's first masterpiece, 1969's Trout Mask Replica. A milestone, this, on the yellow brick road to pure genius. --David Stubbs
