Anyone know the state of his health these days?

Just the same old rumors of MD.

Is it just me, or does Beefheart circa 'Trout Mask' sound like Ornette Coleman's Body Meta only with a brilliantly demented Howlin' Wolf screaching on top of it all?

CB Trout Mask: 70'

OC Body Meta: 75'

Hmmmm :cool:

I always had the feeling that they might be listening to each other at some point.

Beefheart definitely, Ornette...possibly.

Spending a lot of time with Grow Fins lately. I always "liked" his music, though whether I fully appreciated it... I don't know. Now, I feel closer to "getting" it and have really enjoyed the last few spins of that boxed set.

I would think he would have had too.

I was at Bickershaw where it rained constantly, the Dead played an awesome set, but I cant for the life of me recall the good Captains set....old age?

Trivea, in the UK there is a long running, and I mean long running soap, Coronation Street, and back in 1967, I kid you not, at least one of the charecters was lured away on a march to London to demand that Beefheart would play in the UK!

Just the 30-second samples available on eMusic. Sounds like a cassette recording. Spirited performance. "Spitballs" is just soprano sax and drums (Artie Tripp/Ed Marimba). It was a great version of the band.

There's something extremely disturbing about that picture.

Then again, I find there to be something disturbing and repellent about every photo of her.

The old 'fheart was having a real cultural moment back then. Wasn't that around the same time he was on Saturday Night Live?
