theme: PERSONAL PICKS
this part of one or other vague series deals with the voices of 'the most extraordinary singers' of pop music. it contains ballads and because this compilation was released by virgin i fear the captain beefheart contribution is one of the disgusting 1974 recordings. unfortunately we have to mention it anyhow for the statistics.
of course i had to wait till i had given up all hope to ever give you the right answer, before finding it by coincidence...! for the song in question appears to be WHITE JAM from 'the spotlight kid' (originally brought out by warner bros).
part four of this series, 'guitars on mars', includes two more beefheart compositions.
the other acts:
robert wyatt - sly and the family stone - laurel macdonald - milton nascimento - earthling - royal trux - arthur russell - chet baker - stina nordenstam - john lee hooker - tim buckley - yanomami young men - tenko / ikue mori - yma sumac - scott walker - lilacs - julee cruise - martyn bates & mick harris - coldcut - nico - massive attack - tom jobim - ryuichi sakamoto - the beach boys - haruomi hosono - mary margaret o'hara - doctor john - primal scream - david sylvian - john martyn - sheila chandra - the future sound of london
a year after their 'crooning on venus' appearance in the second part of the 'ocean of sound' series captain beefheart & the magic band went to mars and provided two more tracks. although: 'captain beefheart and the magic band'? because this fourth issue of unnecessary compilations is featuring guitars, so it's only gary lucas playing the instrumentals FLAVOR BUD LIVING from 'doc at the radar station' and EVENING BELL off 'ice cream for crow'.
