For, though this is really a blues-based album, the awful phasing and flanging, esp. I honestly believe that, had that not been the case, and this record had been left to stand exactly as the pieces fell, it would have been considered a classic of the late sixties move towards a more rootsy sound, arriving around the same time as The Band's 'Music From Big Pink' and The Stones' 'Beggar's Banquet', but that was not to be, and Beefheart had to change tack again, and prepare to make his masterpiece, 'Trout Mask Replica', and that wasn't ever going to gain him general acceptance.
The thing about SP is, that besides 'Bluejeans And Moonbeams', it is the easiest of the canon to place and date, and that is almost impossible, i. That said, it is essential Beefheart, and worth every red cent. You just can't keep a good man down. Had this album on vinyl once but don't have a vinyl set up anymore so i bought this one, "Safe As Milk" and "Spotlight Kid" together.
I now have them on my MP3 player and it's dead good to be able to hear all these tracks on my headphones and in the car which is usually the only time I get to play my own music. The artistry of the "Magic Band" is amazing and the Captain himself providing the inspiration and direction for the blues based, sonic backdrop that is unique. It is so refreshing to hear instruments played so well and in a fashion that does not need layers of effects to make it sound good.
I had the vinyl copy of this many, many years ago and still find it very rewarding to listen to as a CD. To me then and still now this album was a breath of fresh air - a raw and unique approach which transcended definition. Yes, there is argument about whether the 'phasing' used in production was with or without permission but I have always liked it just as it is. A huge amount of energy, a driving sound and a strong blues feel alongside the unique Beefheart vocals make this a real gem.
