Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – “Owed T’Alex (live)” from I’m Going To Do What I Wanna Do: Live at My Father’s Place 1978
In 2000, Rhino Handmade released this exceptional live recording in an edition of only 5,000 copies that now fetch upwards of 70 bucks on Amazon. You can buy the songs from iTunes but you’ll miss out on the cool packaging, including a CD that looks like a golf ball and is stamped “Van Vliet 78.” The disc also boasts a “Fast-n-Bulbous Production.”
The concert features many songs from the then-new Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller), including this smokin’ version of “Owed T’Alex,” a highlight from the set.
