Performer Notes
  • Full performer name: Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band.
  • Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band includes: Captain Beefheart (vocals, harmonica).
  • Personnel: Captain Beefheart (vocals, guitar, harmonica); Don Van Vliet (vocals); Antennae Jimmy Semens, Alex St. Clair (guitar); Mark Marcellino (keyboards); John French (drums).
  • Recording information: Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA (04/25/1968-05/??/1968).
  • Arranger: Don Van Vliet.
  • After teenage slide guitar whiz Ry Cooder left the Magic Band and they were dropped by Kama Sutra following the commercial failure of their debut, SAFE AS MILK, Captain Beefheart signed with Blue Thumb and released 1968's STRICTLY PERSONAL. Though a lot of Beefheart fans dismiss the album because of the rather dated psychedelic phasing and backwards-tapes effects--which were added during remixing without Beefheart's approval--STRICTLY PERSONAL is an excellent, highly underrated album.
  • Even noisier than SAFE AS MILK, the bluesy tracks continue further down the stream-of-consciousness path subsequently explored more fully on TROUT MASK REPLICA. The opening "Ah Feel Like Ahcid" and the "Strawberry Fields Forever"-quoting "Beatle Bones 'n' Smokin' Stones" are among Beefheart's oddest work, and the Howlin' Wolf-like "Gimme Dat Harp Boy" redefines the blues in Beefheart's own twisted vision. Production tricks aside, this is terrific stuff.
