Captain Beefheart - Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972 [Box Set] (2014)

"Whether you knew him for his artwork or his music, Don Van Vliet – beloved to many as Captain Beefheart – has been much mourned since his death in 2010 at the age of 69, but the man who once helmed The Magic Band has continued to maintain a dedicated following. While his music was generally well out of the mainstream, his seminal album, 1969’s Trout Mask Replica, made such an impact that it was added to the United States National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2010. For many, though, that particular album is the sum total of their Captain Beefheart collection, which is why we’re so excited about the opportunity to expand some people’s musical horizons with our new limited-edition four-disc boxed set, Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972.

Sun Zoom Spark features the three albums that the good Captain recorded in the immediate wake of the aforementioned classic – 1970’s Lick My Decals Off, Baby and 1972’s The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot – and they’ve all been remastered, so they’ll sound better than you’ve ever heard them sound before. The real bonus, though, is the special bonus disc. Now’s your chance to check out 14 previously-unissued outtakes, including alternate versions of “Alice in Blunderland” and “Circumstances,” an early mix of “Nowadays a Woman’s Gotta Hit a Man,” and a variety of other heretofore-unreleased tracks taken from the sessions for The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot, some of which diehard Beefheart aficionados will recognize from their eventual release on other albums. (For example, there are two different versions of “Dirty Blue Gene,” neither of which sound quite like the version that ultimately ended up appearing on Doc at the Radar Station some eight years later.)

So is Sun Zoom Spark your best entry point into the wonderful world of Captain Beefheart? Well, that’s hard to say with any real certainty, since everyone’s tastes are different, but we can say with confidence that there aren’t many artists whose music is quite as much in the you-either-love-it-or-you-hate-it camp as this wonderfully original individual’s music is, so if you’ve ever been curious to find out what all the fuss is about, it’s probably as good a place to start as any. If you’re a longtime fan, though, hearing that this set is finally available is probably the best news you’ll hear all week, so you’re welcome…and enjoy!"
