Captain Beefheart
"Safe as Milk"

Capt. Beefheart's debut album doesn't indicate just how far Van Vliet would take his rag-tag group of misfits in the next handful of years, but it is a good start.

Steeped heavily in the blues, this sounds more like an early Stones record than anything truly new. Where they headed from here, however, is the stuff of legend...

Ry Cooder, at the time only 20 years old, plays guitar for the Band on this record.
