Captain Beefheart released 'Trout Mask Replica' on June 16, 1969.
Pioneer, artist, crazy, bluesman, rock and roller are all terms that could be tossed out to describe the late, great Don Van Vliet, aka. Captain Beefheart. His legendary recordings like 'Safe As Milk,' 'Clear Spot' and the infamous 'Trout Mask Replica' are all essential additions to the adventurous listener's music library. Now, thanks to the fine folks at the U.K. label Gonzo MultiMedia, we can see the man and his Magic Band in action.
