Safe As Milk In Mono
Historical vinyl’s first home, Sundazed Music, released Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band’s 1967 LP Safe As Milkin gloriously un-compressed mono, and it’s a doozy.
Captain Beefheart’s 1967 debut album Safe As Milk introduced the world to a one-of-a-kind visionary whose unique output had no precedent in contemporary music. Beefheart, aka Don Van Vliet, filtered the raw influence of the blues and R&B through his own singular musical sensibility and left-field lyrical wordplay, and surrounded himself with some of the most talented and inventive young musicians around. The result was an album that, even in the heady year in which it was released, sounded like nothing else, and the stage for one of rock’s most iconoclastic and idiosyncratic careers.
