i will spare you the details, but after a year of hopelessly suffering my quickly degenerating web host i have decided to discontinue our collaboration - and spread the word: freewebs sucks!

which means that with immediate effect captain beefheart electricity will be flashing on at the new address
see you there, you're welcome...

captain beefheart - cover versions - alvin youngblood hart - cd 'territory' (1998)

sometimes beefheart cover versions come from unexpected musical corners. like, for instance, this strange creature - a friendly-looking rasta with a warm white voice - who plays all kind of guitars and styles, and is fond of 'music of / for the people'. or better: elemental feelings and the traditional pain and joy of life - or should i say: songs of social importance? anyway: i wonder what beefheart's instrumental ICE ROSE from shiny beast (bat chain puller) has to do with it - but why wonder? it just happened...

the good cover version is performed on electric, lap steel and synth guitar (for the weird sounds) along with bass guitar and drums - if that interests you.

as this issue is distributed by the well-known company rykodisc (yes, they usually have some zappa stuff too) it should be easy to get a copy.
