Album overview from Graham Johnston
Compilation of mid-to-late / Virgin-era Beefheart with a track list which seems to have been chosen at random. Just to completely spoil whatever redeeming qualities the collection may have, it also features snippets of dialogue edited into tunes where they just do not belong.
One to skip, especially now that The Dust Blows Forward has been released which is a far superior package.
1993 UK CD A CARROT IS AS CLOSE AS A RABBIT GETS TO A DIAMOND Insert says COMPILATION AND SLEEVENOTES BY SIMON HOPKINS 1993 – tracks from Virgin’s 5 Albums and 1 EP (’82 “OCEANDS”) “OCEANDS” cut from the ’82 EP appears in digital form for the first time. The CD itself is an art-CD featuring an alarming close-up of Don Vliet’s 1974 moustache.
