Captain Beefheart is an artist that fits into the category of strangely interesting (or is that interestingly strange) but he’s also quite a scary artist to try to sample. It doesn’t seem right to opt for a compilation but a live album (and this one in particular) is a great place to start developing your taste for the Captain.
