Notes

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

Overview

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

    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.
