More Info

From his debut album, 1967's Safe As Milk, through to his return to genre-bending form in the early 80s (the Doc at the Radar Station and Ice Cream for Crow albums), the man born Don Glen Vliet turned all notions of songwriting inside out and, with a rotating cast of musical sorcerers known as The Magic Band, staged exhilarating live shows which were as much performance-art happenings as they were rock concerts.

Featuring TV performances of landmark early material such as Electricity and Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes I Do, through to 70s highlights 'I'm Gonna Booglarize You Baby' and 'Mirror Man', and on to late- period classics including 'Feel Like an Ashtray Heart' and 'Bat Chain Puller', Broadcasts 1968-1980 sees Beefheart and his Magic Band repeatedly conjure genius, leaving a trail of spellbound audiences in their wake.
