Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band DOC AT THE RADAR STATION Vinyl Record - 180 Gram Pressing

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band DOC AT THE RADAR STATION Vinyl Record - 180 Gram Pressing
Captain Beefheart's 1980 release Doc at the Radar Station is considered by many fans to be one of his best albums and a strong comeback after Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller). Featuring the sizzling hot new Magic Band providing superb backing for the Captain's songs and poetic flights of the imagination this goes way beyond the "new wave" so dominant at the time it was made. Who else could make a record that is influenced as much by the blues, rock, free jazz and poetry with a singular, it could only be one person in the world vision? With songs such as "Ashtray Heart", "A Carrot Is As Close As a Rabbit Gets to a Diamond" and "Making Love to a Vampire with a Monkey on My Knee" there is little doubt as to who made this record.
