Exclusive! Listen The New Track “Little Scratch”

Written by on May 18, 2016

Track appears in new box set…

A new box set showcasing recordings Captain Beefheart made in the early Seventies is due for release.

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.

Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 To 1972 features newly remastered versions of three albums that Beefheart and the Magic Band released during that period – Lick My Decals Off, Baby, The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot – as well as an extra disc of alternate versions.

Scroll down to hear a previously unreleased take of the track, “Little Scratch“, which appears on the fourth disc of outtakes.

Long-time Magic Band guitarist Moris Tepper, first met Beefheart [aka Don Van Vliet] at the Troubadour in Los Angeles during the Clear Spot tour. He stayed in the band until 1982. Speaking to Uncut, Tepper reveals that aside from the alternative versions that appear on Sun Zoom Spark, there is also a trove of unreleased Beefheart material.

“I can name a dozen songs right now that I wanted to record with him but which never got recorded,” says Tepper. “They exist maybe more as poems than as songs. He had music for a song called ‘Your Love Brought Me To Life’, I think it was published in a book in Germany. We had worked on a song called ‘Child Ecologist‘ which was another symphony. He’d done something before I ever met him called ‘Big Sur Suite’ which was an incredibly beautiful piece of music, this huge, thematic, movie kind of theme and gorgeous words. He probably had more unrecorded, undocumented works than recorded works. He’s an artist.

    I wish to express some thanks to you for bailing me out of this type of setting. Right after looking throughout the internet and coming across notions which were not helpful, I assumed my life was over. Existing without the presence of solutions to the issues you have fixed through this short post is a critical case, as well as the ones which may have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your website. Your primary talents and kindness in dealing with all areas was precious. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I am able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for the professional and results-oriented guide. I won’t be reluctant to propose your web sites to any person who desires care on this subject.

    There are actually a whole lot of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice level to bring up. I supply the ideas above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you carry up where a very powerful factor will be working in honest good faith.
