From the sleevenotes:

This FM recording was taken from The Magic Band’s ‘last ever’ concert at The Golden Bear, on Huntington Beach, California on the 31st January 1981 after a sell-out tour of Europe & the United States of America. It uniquely captures the spirit & dedication of a band of musicians playing such a diverse, complex & imaginative repertoire of songs taken from such seminal rock classics as “Safe As Milk”, “Trout Mask Replica” thru to “Shiny Beast” (Bat Chain Puller) & ” Doc At The Radar St”

This CD is dedicated to Don Van Vliet, the various members of The Magic Band & the Army of Fans thruout the world


A good quality recording of a great concert. Only small quantities of this CD were pressed.

  1. This is strange, I have a “live at the Golden Bear” in Huntington Beach recording but these are not the songs on the recording. The one I have has fantastic versions of “Click Clack”, “China Pig”, “Ode to Alex” among others. The sound is not the best and the crowd is very interactive.

      Dave, the show you have is from 1978. Probably the one released on vinyl as ‘Easy Teeth’
