A heavily blues -influenced work, the album featured a year-old Ry Cooderwho played guitar and wrote some of the arrangements. This, plus Leonard Grant's severance as manager, added to the discontent. The band instead turned to Bob Krasnowwho was then working for Abba Zaba - Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band - Safe As Milk Sutra Records ; he recruited them to record for the company's new subsidiary label, Buddah.

Meanwhile, Beefheart had been secretly planning changes to the Magic Band's line-up—a practice common throughout the group's existence.

Clair on drums. These and other changes resulted in a Magic Band with Handley on bass, St. Clair on guitar, and John French on drums, with Cooder providing additional guitar parts. Cooder's arrival had been swayed by Marker, who had spent time with Vliet and had been given to believe he would produce the album; in fact, Marker was only engaged in demo recording. The album is heavily influenced by the Delta bluesand this is apparent from the opening bars of the first track, "Sure 'Nuff 'n Yes I Do", based on Muddy Waters' " Rollin' and Tumblin ' ".

Another of the more distinctive songs on the album is "Abba Zaba", one of three compositions credited solely to Beefheart using his real name. An AllMusic review of the track states, "Although not directly blues influenced 'Abba Zaba' contains peripheral elements of the wiry delta sound that informed much of the album", noting that Cooder's influence is heard here in the "chiming, intricate guitar lines" and "up front and biting bass work".

The band had, at one point, planned to name the album after the confection, but the bar's manufacturer, the Cardinet Candy Co. The black Abba Zaba - Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band - Safe As Milk yellow checkerboard pattern on the album's back sleeve, designed by Tom WilkesStand And Be Counted - Troy* - Stand And Be Counted / Then Go a relic of this idea—echoing the black and yellow colors of the candy bar wrapper.

Van Vliet's lyrics and song titles owed a great deal to surreal poetry. Try as they might, his fans had a difficult time analyzing such lines as these from "Abba Zabba" on the album Safe as Milk :. For some time, the involvement of a Herb Bermann as co-writer on eight of the tracks was a point of confusion, as Vliet did not employ him, or indeed any regular co-writer at any other time in his career, and never discussed or clarified his role in the album.

There was little record of his existence, though his name incidentally also appeared in a reference to an unproduced Bad Habit (Armin Van Buuren Gimmick Club Mix) - Various - Metroclub Line 2 for After the Gold Rush on the Neil Young album of the same name.

Various Magic Band members had in fact indicated that the name may have been nothing other than a publishing-related pseudonym. It was only in that Bermann himself was finally located and interviewed, and his involvement as co-writer confirmed. John Lennon had two Safe As Milk promotional stickers on cupboard doors at his home.

The album made a greater impact in Europe than in the U. In the track Zig Zag Wanderer was used as the soundtrack for a Hyundai advertisement.

When Abba Zaba - Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band - Safe As Milk UK distribution passed to Polydor in it was again reissued, this time on Buddah in Polydor's budget 99 series and retitled Dropout Boogie. This 99 series release was also the first appearance in the UK of a stereo mix of the album.

They added seven bonus tracks, taken from the sessions for the unreleased Brown Wrapper follow-up album.

    Above all, Beefheart and his Magic Band took deep blues as source material and kneaded it into the grotesque and wonderful shapes of “Sure ‘Nuff ‘n’ Yes, I Do,” “Plastic Factory” and “Grown So Ugly,” the last of which is a cover of an obscure .

    Oct 03,  · Year: The making of Safe As Milk, the debut album of Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band, is a long and convoluted story, revealed at length elsewhere upon the Web and in written accounts. However, some rudimentary details are worth having here for /5(K).

    Dec 04,  · Safe as Milk is a bold, tough-ass distillation of Delta blues stomp and '60s garage-punk swagger, fused with a radically polyrhythmic and tempo-shifting style that one might term "art rock." Listening to the delightfully playful, absurdist "Abba Zabba," it's easy to see why Lester Bangs called Beefheart "the only true dadaist in rock"; the song is a good indication of /5().
