Recorded by Dutch radio this show has been broadcast several times over the years. The full show was around an hour and forty minutes long, but a lot of this time was taken up with Don getting annoyed with some idiots in the crowd – one in particular makes an irritating squealing noise. A tape version of it circulated for sometime with the incomplete show plus an interview and between song comments by Dutch presenters. More recently very good sound quality recordings of the complete show have appeared. The Paradiso show has been bootlegged a number of times. Here are the ones we know about: Electric Poetry Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 YearRead More →

This collection is not a commercially available bootleg. It has circulated amongst a number of Beefheart collectors and can be downloaded via some select torrent sites. But as it’s such an important release I am making an exception and including the details of it here. At last all the outtakes from the productive 1971 and 1972 years have been gathered together in one place. Many of these songs and instrumentals have turned up on bootlegs over the years, and a couple have even been released legitimately but this is the first time they have been made available on one release. These outtakes, rescued from the Warner Reprise vaults, have circulated amongst collectors forRead More →

Song List A Steal Softly Thru Snow B Click Clack Bit of an oddity this one. A 7″ vinyl with picture sleeve of two songs ‘Steal Softly Thru Snow’ and ‘Click Clack’ taken from the band’s appearance on the German TV show “Beat Club” in 1972. Apparently only 50 copies were cut so it’s definitely a rarity. Not sure why this was issued as the tracks are readily available on the Lost Broadcasts DVD and double vinyl LP. It’s a pity more thought wasn’t taken with the picture on the front which shows the 1975 touring band rather than the 1972 band that was onRead More →
