Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band TRANSLUCENT FRESNEL LIVE 72/73: NAN TRUES HOLE Vinyl Record

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band TRANSLUCENT FRESNEL LIVE 72/73: NAN TRUES HOLE Vinyl Record
180 gram vinyl gatefold sleeve. The title obviously is a reworking of Clear Spot - Translucent Fresnel (Fresnel is a spotlight). From the late 1960s through to 1980 John Peel collected tapes of recordings of Captain Beefheart's live shows particularly ones in the UK. During a tidy up at Nan True's Hole in 2003 he discovered around six large reels of tape containing many of Beefheart's live UK performances and he sent these on to Ozit Morpheus Records. Here is Volume 1 of material from the tapes. Like all Beefheart live tracks they are chaotic, erratic and yet charming. Because of the age of the material and sometimes crude recording techniques there is the odd glitch in the recordings but rather than try and digitally repair the sound you get it exactly as it came off the tapes warts and all but full of Beefheartian energy. Volume 1 is songs mainly from the Clearspot era tour of the UK.
