“Strictly Personal” by Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band - album review

TJR says

Following the major label rejections, Bob Krasnow’s new Blue Thumb label took this on, and the murky, muddy production – Krasnow’s unauthorised attempt to produce a ‘psychedelic’ statement – doesn’t do the group any great favours. Despite this, the good captain and his motley crew still manage to shine brightly through the haze. These whitey’s just wanted to play the blues wonky – record labels just didn’t know what to do with them. Erm, shouldn’t they have rolled the tapes and let them be? All in all, for reasons stated, things are hippy-trippy on Album # 2, but “Strictly Personal” ultimately survives the abuse, emerging as the solid stepping stone between the accessibility of its predecesor, “Safe As Milk”, and the outright craziness of its follow up, “Trout Mask Replica”.
