The second greatest rock LP ever made.
2017年11月13日 - (Amazon.com)
Pay no mind to the tin-eared, unsophisticated ABBA and KC & The Sunshine Band enthusiasts who routinely trash and belittle the astoundingly beautiful (Monk might call it "Ugly Beauty"), complex, and, ultimately, logically constructed musical pieces on this superb double LP (single CD). Many of the most respected of today's writers and musicians claim that this album was life changing and altered the manner in which they perceived and processed music. Indeed, this is radically creative, boundary smashing music, informed by delta blues, doo-wop, soul, free jazz, country and western, theatrical, psychedelic, and garage rock styles. The songs are filled with precisely played and hugely difficult guitar, slide guitar, woodwind, and drum parts that often seem, on the first few listens, to be musicians playing on different worlds from each other. Rhythms and time signatures shift constantly, with different instruments playing in different times from one another, leading to an effect of cacophony that gradually turns into simpatico playing only to diverge again into seemingly dissimilar parts. In addition, traditional song structures (chorus, verse, chorus, verse, bridge, chorus, verse) are very rare. This is not to say that the songs have no structure. Indeed, what may at first seem to be random riffing and noodling is, in every case, an intentional, fixed arrangement that the mighty Magic Band learned to play precisely and exactly the same way, instructed by a tyrannical (some say emotionally abusive) Beefheart (Don Van Vliet), during ten to fourteen hour daily practices that continued for six or eight months, prior to the recording. During this time, the large band shared one vehicle, all slept and lived in the same house, were not paid, subsisted on cheap bologna and white bread, and took orders from Don, who was not to be crossed.
Grow Finns' better cuts on one CD.

This was one of the best purchase's. If you love Beefheart, didn't get, or couldn't afford the Grow Finns box set but wanted one. This is the CD for you! 'Trout Mask House Sessions' is just that. The songs from that CD as well as the cuts from the DVD. The sleeve is a Replica of Trout Mask Replica. The price is right. The seller is stellar!
THE classic Beefheart

The classic Beefheart. Every Beefheart collector has this and Beefheart has never disowned this album of course. Sounds at first like the band just walked into the studio, smashed out of their skulls and played whatever was in their mixed up heads; not so. This album on careful listening reflects a stunning vision, meticulous arrangement and weeks of practice. In fact, they walked into the studio and played exactly what they had practiced and precisely what was in Don Van Vliet's head. This man, at this point was at the very peak of his career and had a very wonderful musical imagination. Takes some listening if you're not already a Captain Beefheart fan. Worth the effort.

This LP is not easy listening, but I can see how it influence ...

I kept hearing about this album and Captain Beefheart in interviews with some of my indie-rock heroes e.g., Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr.) and a Mark Maron interview with Robyn Hitchcock. I decided to pick this LP up as it is not on Spotify and I would rather have the was disk than bits and bytes on my hard drive. This LP is not easy listening, but I can see how it influenced early Sebadoh recordings. Makes the history of experimental rock music more interesting in the context of this LP.
Influential and complex, innovative and groundbreaking in his day

An often-overlooked musical genius and oddity, Beefheart belongs in every rock enthusiast's collection. A brilliant mix of fusion, blues, rock, and psychedelia reminiscent of his collaborator Frank Zappa, this is many-layered and endlessly explorable. If you like musical adventures, rather than mainstream oldies, have some Beefheart.
