Opher Goodwin Captain Beefheart On Track Book
A series of hugely inventive albums, including the infamous Trout Mask Replica, and some legendary live performances, established Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band as the world's foremost avant-garde rock band. 
 
This book puts the history of the band in context by analysing every track and attempting to interpret both the music and Don Vliet's poetry. 

 

Opher Goodwin is the author of many books on rock music and science fiction and taught the first 'History of Rock Music' classes in the UK. He was fortunate to spend the sixties in London, the epicentre for the underground explosion of rock music and culture, where he was able to see everyone from Pink Floyd, Hendrix and Cream to The Doors, Captain Beefheart and Roy Harper. He was introduced to Captain Beefheart in 1967 and attended that first amazing gig at Middle Earth. He never fully recovered but now lives happily in East Yorkshire, UK.
