    This program features part two of Captain Beefheart’s fractured masterpiece, “Trout Mask Replica”.

    At the time of its release, it was so unique that there was nothing else to compare it to. Most listeners could not even discern whether the musical patterns were deliberate or accidental, but over time, the genius of the arrangements became apparent to anyone who cared to listen.

    In the post-punk years of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, “Trout Mask Replica” became a reference point of sorts for the expanding genre.
