Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band The Spotlight Kid on 180g LP

In the wonderfully idiosyncratic discography of the-one-of-a-kind artist Captain Beefheart (aka Don Van Vliet), attention usually focuses on the carefully wrought, experimental music heard on his noted 1969 masterwork Trout Mask Replica. As a consequence, the three stellar albums recorded soon after - Lick My Decals Off, Baby (1970),The Spotlight Kid (1972) and Clear Spot (1972) - are often criminally overlooked.

Rhino rectified that with the box set Sun, Zoom, Spark 1970-1972 which revisits the albums Beefheart recorded with the Magic Band in the early-70s. It included all three albums, which were remastered for the first time, as well as an entire LP featuring 14 previously unissued outtakes from the era. Now they're offering remastered individual pressings of Lick My Decals Off, BabyThe Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot on 180g vinyl.

Captain Beefheart took over full production duties on his 1972 release The Spotlight Kid, resulting in a loose and fun album of heavy and spacious blues that is often cited as one of his most accessible. The album features some of Beefheart's most beautiful songs, such as "Glider" and "Grow Fins" as well as the live favorites "Alice In Blunderland" and "Click Clack."
