-------------------- ALBUMS

    • usa 1969 straight sleeve: sts 1053 with lyric sheet
EXPLANATION TO THIS BLANK SPOT
not only did it take captain beefheart and the magic band several brainstorms to learn this legendary new music - the captain by sleeping and the band by rehearsing - and a few legendary sessions to record it (with the producer sleeping) but, worst of all, about ten different pressings / versions in half a year to meet the steadily growing demand.
these weird happenings have never been investigated profoundly, and as (again) i seem to be the only one wanting to do the job but have no time, i fear you'll never get to know the full story.
so, here's a very short summary:
all usa 1969 items have been released by straight records
and (ought to) contain a trifold lyric sheet
