A Tribute to Captain Beefheart

Captain Beefheart (RIP), whose magnum opus Trout Mask Replica, occupied many (far too many) of my college hours seeking first to understand, then to decide whether or not I liked it, then to figure out how it had ever made it out into the world of music at all given the less that liberal allowances of the recording industry even at that time.

Later: Frank at Books Inq.  has rounded up a number of tributes
