And His Magic Band
Safe As Milk
Says Ry of Captain Beefheart on the 1983 Guitar Greats interview: "He had great musical ideas. It was kind of an interesting event. I still think that Safe As Milk is a good record. What's really good there is the master tape. It's mixed badly. Hopeless mix... hopeless... terrible. Stupid thing was done which was to take it into a cheap studio to save some money.... The master tape of that album is utterly fantastic. They should take it to Japan and redo it. What a great sound. 'Cause it was cut in a good studio on tube equipment - it's a fantastic sound. I was pretty impressed with what he had figured out. Not always logical, but always interesting."Produced by : Bob Krasnow & Richard Perry
