thanks again, UG. A lot of fun as usual. Note the ‘L’ Histoire du Soldat’ quote at the beginning of ‘Regyptian Strut’ (which is itself pretty wonderful, BTW)
This is deluxe material!
Something good just happened to me so I’m enjoying even more…
Another fine selection – thank you!!
Is it me or does anybody else hear a similiarity at 07:44 of Pojama People and Captain Beefheart’s Full Moon, Hot Sun from his Unconditionally Guaranteed album?
Wow, thanks! Nothing like the 3 minute samples I see on other blogs I read =D

Indeed, I do, Knirps. Then again, I’ve heard the similarities between Zappa and Beefheart for decades, as well as where they depart from one another musically and creatively. For the longest time I used to consider Beefheart the anti-Zappa, or was Zappa the anti-Beefheart? In any case, both are unique and distinct, and even when their music seems similar to each other, they arrive at that similarity from completely different starting points (and intents) – FZ, at least to me, is more orderly and self-controlled while Don Van Vliet is more anarchistic and playfully childlike in his compositions.
Fuck me. That version of Beauty Knows No Pain is a motherfucker.
Great tracks as always. Thanks, UrbanG. And always nice to see a show that I attended on the list (Oct 30, 1980 Blue Light).
