Oh, God, it’s a double live album from Captain Beefheart.  Sadly, hot on the heels of “Live In Detroit 1980″, this is a bootleg quality release aimed at the Captain Beefheart diehards.
You’ve got to feel sorry for them, though.  I mean, imagine listening to Captain Beefheart albums every day, or having your iPod full of his songs.  If there was a charity to help them recover, I’s happily chip in.  Anyway, this one is from 1977, as the name says, and saw Beefheart getting bad crits for the first time in his career.
He had a new Magic band in tow, and they were tasked with trying to link up the old and the new.  Denny Walley and Jeff Morris Tepper on guitars do their best to bring order to the chaos on the likes of ‘Electricity’, ‘Big Eye Beans From Venus’ and ‘I Wanna Find A Woman That’ll Hold My Big Toe Till I Have To Go’.  It’s a B plus bootleg, but one that Beefheart sufferers will clasp to their wounded bosoms.
