To answer your question; I'm sorry but I had to report you to the mods, so it's now out of our hands. They might go easy on you, especially if you show some remorse.... indifference isn't hate.... you came forward and confessed of your own free will.... upstanding member of MB community....of good character....first-time offender....

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

If you try Frownland's suggestion, you'll discover that Safe As Milk is a really easy listen, compared to Trout Mask. A couple of tracks are a little weak and dated, but there are plenty of good ones, so keep going until the fabulous closer, Electricity.

I think you mean Autumn'a Child, but Electricity is the best song on the album after Abba a Zabba. I recommend listening to the reissue though, Tristan. It has a lot of cool bonus tracks from Mirror Man and Strictly Personal that are all great.

Oops! Didn't realize how many years it's been since I played Safe As Milk - I've completely forgotten the running order of the tracks, but yes, Abba Zabba is another stand-out track for sure. I haven't heard those cd bonus tracks, so I might see if they're on YouTube.

Dali's Car was the first TMR track that Beefheart composed - at the piano, with John French as the long-suffering assistant trying to annotate and transcribe for the band what Beefheart was playing. The track was supposedly inspired by Stravinsky, so here's a Stravinsky piece, transcribed for piano.
We can compare: Dali's Car (which went from piano to guitar) and Symphonies of Wind Instruments (which has gone from woodwind to piano).

You heard what I said.

Maybe preface it with some general Delta blues obsession/education.

That's a goodie.

Not counting his notation of the madness, I think that Suger 'n' Spikes has Drumbo's greatest moment at 1:54 (it's also one of the things that made me return to the record when I first heard it).
