So I’m the world’s biggest Captain Beefheart fan. It’s undisputed.
So I’m biased.
This 30 minute video shot in Paris,France, November 9, 1980, is terrific.
Here’s the band and the set:
Don Van Vliet – vocals, harmonica, sax
Jeff Moris Tepper – guitar
Richard Midnight Hatsize Snyder – guitar
Eric Drew Feldman – bass, synthesizer, mellotron, piano
Robert Arthur Williams – drums
Gary Lucas – guitar*
1 Nowadays A Woman’s Gotta Hit A Man
2 Best Batch Yet
3 Dirty Blue Gene
4 Safe as Milk
5 Flavor Bud Living*
6 Bat Chain Puller
7 Big Eyed Beans From Venus
Thanks to Steve McConnell for hipping me to Doom & Gloom From The Tomb, where I found the Beefheart clip.
