Gimme Dat Harp Boy [coll] – [Big Snake Records]

Starting with a spoken intro from Captain Beefheart hiz own self, this collections spans about 50 years of roots blues, odd jazz (trad, swing and flute honks-n-squirts,) pre-psychedelic poetry, raw hillbilly/Hawaiian country, novelty tunes, raunch & roll and other nifty treats that influenced the young Don Van Vliet as he developed into the Captain of Beefheart weirdness. Not arranged in any chronologic order and the extensive LINER NOTES DO NOT MATCH THE TRACK ORDER! You will find some amazing stuff here, some that were eventually covered by the Magic band. Basically clean for language but there are some suggestive old blues (Black Snake tracks #6 & #7 especially) *review by Studebaker Hawk
