✨✧ Captain BeyondSufficiently Breathless ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1973. Used ... $4.99
A slightly gentler album than the first Captain Beyond outing – but one that really has the group stretching out their wings wonderfully! The set's recorded both in Macon and Sausalito – and really has a vibe that indicates that mix – a core southern rock element, handled with the soulful undercurrents of early 70s Capricorn Records – but given some freer-thinking elements at times from the Bay Area scene! The drums power through nicely at some of the best points – but even the laidback tunes are pretty darn great – and we honestly never can understand why Captain Beyond weren't as big as some of their contemporaries from the southern scene. Titles include "Starglow Energy", "Evil Men", "Drifting In Space", "Bright Blue Tango", "Everything's A Circle", and "Voyages Of Past Travelers". CD

✨✧ StumpFierce Pancake & Beyond – The Complete Anthology (3CD set) ... CD
Sanctuary (UK), Late 80s. Used 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
The complete works of one of the oddest groups on the British scene of the 80s – the bass-heavy, bottom-leading Stump – a combo with a really unique sort of sound! At the root of their groove was a Captain Beefheart or Pere Ubu-inspired drive to put subject all instruments to the rhythm – but the execution was often much cleaner, leaner, and somewhat more arty than Beefheart ever was – a sound that was one of the bright lights of the post-post-punk years, and one of the few more experimental modes cracking the mainstream at the time. The group's music was often mixed with a good dose of humor too – thanks to frontman Mick Lynch, whose lyrics were certainly some of the maddest of the Irish-influenced years of British 80s pop – and even when Stump made a move to a big label, Chrysalis, for their last LP, they still kept all these best elements firmly in place. 3CD set features their complete recordings – Quirk Out, Mud On A Colon, and A Fierce Pancake – plus a full disc of bonus material after the Pancake album, and notes on the band's history by its most famous member, Kev Hopper. 36 tracks in all – including "Tupperware Stripper", "Our Fathers", "Buffalo", "Orgasm Way", "Bit Part Actor", "Big End", "Living It Down", "In The Green", "Heartache", "Alcohol", "Charlton Heston", "Chaos", "Seven Sisters", "Rats", "The Queen & The Pope", "The Lipstick Maker", and "Safe Sex".
