Notes

Compilation of 70s live recordings with varying sound quality. Release note from Ozit:

"Batlight Clearkid 1970’s is an LP compilation of great Captain Beefheart live material recorded in the UK and in Europe. The tracks are taken from John Peels personal collection of live reel to reel tapes and this album was put together by John Peel in 2002 and passed across for release on the Dandelion label. The gatefold sleeve contains many previously unseen Captain Beefheart images. The initial pressing will be 1000 units in 180 gram yellow vinyl."

    It's not as great as advertised - this is hodge-podged together from two audience recordings. I strongly doubt the John Peel connection. Personally though, I enjoy listening to it, since it mostly highlights the Captain's more bizarre live material and I can totally condone the sound quality.

    All tracks are from Nouvel Hippodrome, Paris 11/19/77
    except for A3, A4, B4, B7, which are from Knebworth Festival 07/05/75

    Both complete shows, for comparison:
