Captain Beefheart

Lost Broadcasts DVD

Review by Gary Hill

Captain Beefheart fans will certainly love to get their hands on this set. It’s from a 1972 appearance at the Beat Club when touring for his two brand new albums. He appeared at the Beat Club and for the most part these videos have never surfaced before. It includes some minor issues and glitches and the type of rather annoying effects for which the Beat Club was known, but it’s also quite cool. It’s a safe bet that Beefheart fans will be all over this because it truly is a rare release.
