"Sure ‘Nuff ‘N Yes I Do" by Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band

A&M signed Captain Beefheart in hopes that his band would be an American version of The Rolling Stones.  Problem is, Captain Beefheart believed the Blues had already been done to perfection, and it was time for music to take a totally different direction.  Needless to say, A&M dropped Beefheart after releasing just a couple singles.  So he took his Magic Band—which at the time included a young Ry Cooder—to Buddah Records and recorded Safe As Milk, one of the greatest debut albums in the history of fucking ever.

Recording a follow-up, however, was a real problem.  I have no time to recount that frenzied story again today, so CLICK HERE to read about (and listen to) the five records—yes, five records—that came of Beefheart’s attempts to record a second album.
