Captain Beefheart Discography


Captain Beefheart was one of music's great eccentrics, and it's not surprising he and Frank Zappa were buddies. John Peel was one of the Captain's biggest fans, and 'Trout Mask Replica' is a favourite album of many. Captain Beefheart later enjoyed life as a respected artist - painting that is.
