6. BEEFHEART ALBUMS IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE:
basically I rebel at this linear list and have not had the time to
completely absorb everything I have had
access to. I grew up in the AOR world and appreciate its sense
of order over the 'pop' song fixation of
the masses. however, beefhearts creation of individual songs
w the MB arrangements seem to hold
more importance over album creation, except for TRM and Decals.
the others may be album/concept
oriented w/out me being aware, but I do tend to look at individual
songs as individual creations w/in a
historical context which is also shadowed/buttressed/biased by my introduction
and my own context
(when I learned the song etc), so . . . this listing is subject
to immediate and complete rearrangement.

9. HOW DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER CAPTAIN
BEEFHEART & THE MAGIC BAND,
10 yrs time ago some buds played TRM
incessantly. I of course held onto the dearly beloved hendrix
and stones stuff without hearing anything
else by CB&HMB. recently another bud brought home the
SAM BuddHA remaster which floored me.
then I discovered the radar station where I greedily picked
up everything, then the Grow Fins box and
now I struggle to buy everything I can find.
..... AND WAS THERE A PARTICULAR SONG THAT MADE YOU SEE
Trust Us in the context of its
placement on the new SAM reissue .
