Tracklisting / Additional Info: More Information
This legendary album is far from 'easy listening' but is none the less an essential 'must have' in any collection. Mr Van Vliet & his astonishing band took the conventional ideas about music & composition & turned them completely on their heads to create an album which still, to this day, stands as one of the benchmark recordings in history.

This copy has the ORIGINAL Straight catalogue numbers on both sleeve & labels [STS1053], meaning that it was the first release in 1969 before changing to the more common Reprise pressing.
Unlike the US pressing, the sides are labelled [& play] in order, rather than the 1/4, 2/3 arrangement on the US vinyl.

Details (From liner Notes) :-

ZOOT HORN ROLLO: glass finger guitar, flute
ANTENNAE JIMMY SEMENS: steel-appendage guitar
CAPTAIN BEEFHEART: bass clarinet, tenor sax, soprano sax, vocal
THE MASCARA SNAKE: bass clarinet & vocal
ROCKETTE MORTON: bass & narration
DRUMBO: drums [not listed on original liner, only CD reissue]

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART plays tenor & soprano sax simultaneously on Ant Man Bee, simran horn & musette on Neon Meate Dream; ANTENNAE JIMMY SEMENS sing lead vocal on Pena & plays flesh horn on Ella Guru; special guest artist DOUG MOON plays guitar on China Pig;

Produced by FRANK ZAPPA
Arranged by DON VAN VLIET

Engineered by Dick Kunc
Album design: Cal Schenkel
Photography: Ed Caraeff/Cal Schenkel
Special electronic modifications on Captain Beefheart's band equipment by Dick Kunc
Most recent in a long series of contract negotiations leading to an actual signing: Neil C. Reshen

All songs written by Captain Beefheart
1969 Words & music copyrighted for the world by Beefheart Music Co. BMI

Condition
The gatefold picture sleeve shows a little age with some noticable ringwear and edge scuffing but with no rips or tears present and the colours are still bright and sharp.
The vinyl remains in 'Very Good' condition with minimal paper scuffs and hairlines which don't affect playback so all in all a fine example for it's vintage.The first UK release didn't sell too well at the time, so finding one at all is an achievement .

You either love or hate Trout Mask, there is no inbetween. This is a highly recommended UK original for those that do!
