Unfortunately, it's languished out of print since the early CD era and now reappears as the first disc of Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972, a handy 4xCD compilation (disc four a fascinating set of outtakes and unreleased material) that captures the good Captain’s cagey albeit failed move towards mainstream rock acceptance. Rather than the impenetrable poses of TMR, Decals finds Beefheart at his wiliest and most playful, a new persona that takes centerstage across this album as well as its follow-ups, The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot. On this concise album, death-defying time changes and complex chords abound. There are also two stunning, contemplative and complicated solo guitar compositions, Peon and One Red Rose That I Mean, that sound at once stately and knuckle-breaking to play. A song like Bellerin’ Plain contains multitudes in its three and a half minutes.
The 1972 Sun Bowl was a college football postseason bowl game that featured the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

MIDNIGHT SUN formerly called RAINBOW BAND released this album in 1971, a re-recording of their debut with a different singer. This band was from Denmark and the music is very much Jazz/ Rock with some outstanding guitar and bass but the singer's voice for me is a required taste. Soulful is the word with his vocals making this sound often like a commercial record and indeed some of these songs are too poppy for lack of a better word.
