Bluejeans & Moonbeams
Leftovers from Beefheart's interim Magic Band in the mid-70's, usually referred to as the "Tragic Band". Buy it if you need to complete your collection. Most will agree that this is probably the worst Beefheart album, though there are a few people who have told me they enjoyed it..
