Captain Beefheart's Clear SpotPage 1 of 1    
I knew a couple of guys in high school who were serious Mothers of Invention and Captain Beefheart fans. I got turned on to Trout Mask Replica and used to have Mirror Man in my collection....weirdness. I have the song Clear Spot on my MP3 player, more accessible and a pretty good tune.

Seeing as how I love Zappa I'll have to check the Captain out. Seems like this disc is as good as any to start with.

One of his most accessible albums. I really like this one in particular because it is more approachable than some of his others. You can like this one "off the shelf" without having to put on your serious music hat.

If you liked Clear Spot try out Safe as Milk! Another great release that's more subdued than his most critically polarizing Trout Mask Replica.

Get the Legendary A&M sessions cd-it's short, but packs a wallop! For the die hards, the mini box set is the way to go-TONS of rare stuff on it!!

I think Spotlight Kid is way more accessible than Clear Spot but I still like Troutmask Replica best.

Wow, I'm definitely among a rare brunch here, and I luv it. The last two songs, I think it was, on Troutmask Replica, you can sure tell Frankie baby had some input on those, especially the melody on the second to the last song. And then on the last song, I'm still scratchin' my head on wether or not Frank worked some of his special production magic on that or was it straight off tha' grill?????

I like his "Willie The Pimp" on Zappa's Hot Rats album.

I forgot to mention in my previous post. I got see Captain Beefheart live once. I saw Frank Zappa in Dec. '74 at the Capital Theater in Passaic, NJ. Zappa had Captain Beefheart with him at that concert. That was around the time when the "One Size Fits All" album came out.
