Captain Beefhearts 1967 debut album Safe As Milk introduced the world to a one-of-a-kind visionary whose unique output had no precedent in contemporary music. Beefheart, aka Don Van Vliet, filtered the raw influence of the blues and R&B through his own singular musical sensibility and left-field lyrical wordplay, and surrounded himself with some of the most talented and inventive young musicians around. The result was an album that, even in the heady year in which it was released, sounded like nothing else, and the stage for one of rocks most iconoclastic and idiosyncratic careers. With backup from the first, and perhaps finest, incarnation of Beefhearts legendary Magic Band (including future solo star Ry Cooder on guitar and teenage drum prodigy John Drumbo French), and production from future studio superstar Richard Perry, Beefheart unveils his fully-formed sound and vision on such landmark tracks as Zig Zag Wanderer, Abba Zaba, Dropout Boogie, Im Glad and Electricity (covered two decades later by Sonic Youth). Now released on LP and CD by Sundazed Music, this landmark album now sounds the way it was meant to sound, thanks to the restoration of Perrys rare originaland, to most fans, superiormono mix, which was later altered by Beefhearts label without the artists involvement. Both the LP and CD version of this definitive edition feature authoritative new liner notes by Rolling Stone editor and longtime Beefheart enthusiast David Fricke. In mono, Safe As Milk is a powerful, concentrated revelation, Fricke writes, further noting, Safe As Milk promised comfort, exotic nourishment and rude healthand delivered. Created in a year rich in historic debuts and transformative statements about rocks dynamic and expressive possibilities, Safe As Milk was so far in it was out. Also available on compact disc!
