Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band - The Country Club, Reseda, CA, January 29, 1981 : 2 x CDs (Mega Blowout Sale)

Pretty good sounding audience recording of the 3rd to the last performance by The Magic Band.

"autumn 1980 through january 1981 captain beefheart and the magic band promoted their latest album, doc at the radar station, with a tour in europe and the states. however, as don hadn't performed live for well over a year and a half, it took a while before he found the right groove. after a terrible first week, the group came into shape (also because last-minute member richard snyder 'fell in place') and when the band returned to the usa in late november it was tight. one of the last concerts of what would turn out to be beefheart's last tour, took place on 29.01.81 in one of the many towns surrounding los angeles."

Pretty good sounding? Man, this sounds great to me! A full show with the Captain in good voice and the edgy 1980's band in fine form too! Just grab it!
