“This Album is dedicated to Captain Beefheart – Long may he walk the Yellow Brick Road”

Album overview

The first Beefheart tribute album. Imaginary Records released a number of similar tribute albums (Syd Barrett; The Kinks) with a number of the same bands taking part. Some of the covers had already been released but others were recorded especially for this album. As can be seen there are a couple of well-known names involved here. All of these are pretty straightforward renderings of the original version of the song.

For details on the individual releases and the bands involved see the main covers listing.
