I'm a rather avid fan of this man's work (read several books about him and seen quite a few documentaries about his life and work). What he lacked in eclecticism (on a superficial level, that is), he made up with brilliance and uniqueness. His magnum opus, Trout Mask Replica (1969), is a work of art and exhibits a type of music normally found in free improvisation and free jazz... even though the entirety of it is composed. It's dada, it's blues, it's fucking Captain Beefheart. Anyways, here are a few videos: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjWoDKj-BoE]Dachau Blues - YouTube[/ame][ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9eTwPgl0GU]Captain Beefheart- Dr. Dark - YouTube[/ame][ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8mKHO2aX_k]Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band Fallin' Ditch - YouTube[/ame] Anyone else a fan?
