Captain Beefheart/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Begins!
The Return Of The Iconic Mirror Man Album!
First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl & Smashed Mirror Die-Cut LP Gatefold Cover
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Authorized Buddah Records Tapes
Captain Beefheart will be forever known as one of the first originators of art rock, prog-rock and punk rock all rolled into one. With his Howlin' Wolfesque growl and blazing harmonica blues wailing, Don Van Vilet a/k/a/ Captain Beefheart truly delivered the goods with his legendary Mirror Man album. Originally recorded between 1965 and 1967, The Captain and his Magic Band created some of the most masterful funk and progressive rock ever waxed with this stellar session.
Consisting of lengthy jam packed champions like his classic Tarotplane and 25th Century Quaker, Beefheart continues to rock further with the international title track hit Mirror Man and the funkified rocker Kandy Korn.
Friday Music is very proud to announce the authorized 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of Captain Beefheart's classic Mirror Man. Mastered from the authorized Buddah Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain.
For a very short time, we are also including the super rare psychedelic die-cut gatefold LP cover artwork not seen in decades, to further enhance your listening pleasure, plus three poems on the back cover from the pen of Don Van Vilet.
