Beefheart was years ahead of his time

The most underground music of today has only touched the tip of the iceberg with what Beefheart was doing back in the Trout Mask days. This is an absolutley extrordinary collection for anyone who's looking into understanding the influence this man has had on so many modern musicians. The nice thing about this collection is that it also contains much of his more accessible bluesy music from his early days. A must have for any fan of Avant Garde Music.

Time has mellowed the impact but still great music

Younger listners may be surprised at just how accessible Captain Beefheart now sounds. What was once insanely avant-garde is now just a little on the edge. Beefheart obviously had a huge influence on bands like Mission of Burma and the Minutemen and later Pavement. If you like angular punk you'll find Beefheart worth checking out.
