✨✧ Captain BeyondCaptain Beyond/Sufficiently Breathless ... CD
Cotillion/Raven (Australia), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great batch of kick ass tunes from Captain Beyond – 1972's self-titled set and '73's Sufficiently Breathless – back-to-back on a single CD! The Captain Beyond LP is southern fried but with a cosmic undercurrent that makes for a weird approach – and odd, but walloping mix of proggy dexterity underneath hard charging rhythm and searing guitars! Bobby Caldwell is in the group on percussion, piano, vibes, and bells – and he also co-wrote most of the songs on the album. The drums get nice and heavy at the best parts – and tracks include "Dancing Madly Backwards", "Myopic Void", "Frozen Over", "Thousand Days Of Yesterdays", "As The Moon Speaks", and "Astral Lady". Sufficiently Breathless has a less driving sound with more acoustic based grooves, with some personal changes bring a different vibe – some spacier bluesy bits, some Latin percussion, and more acoustic elements overall! Titles include "Sufficiently Breathless", "Bright, Blue Tango", "Drifting In Space", "Evil Men", "Distant Sun", "Everything's A Circle" and more. CD

✨✧ Captain BeyondSufficiently Breathless ... LP
Capricorn, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
