Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) is the tenth studio album by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band. Released in 1978, the album was produced by Captain Beefheart and Pete Johnson and released by Warner Bros. Shiny Beast emerged from the production difficulties surrounding Bat Chain Puller, an album Captain Beefheart recorded for DiscReet and Virgin Records in 1976.

Doc at the Radar Station is the eleventh studio album by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, released in August 1980 to critical acclaim. Although about half of the album's songs are based on old musical ideas, Mike Barnes states that "most of the revamping work built on skeletal ideas and fragments. would have mouldered away in the vaults had they not been exhumed and transformed into full-blown, totally convincing new material".

I had just two albums with Captain Beefheart on it in the LP (vinyl) era: Zappa's Bongo Fury, which he guested on and Doc At The Radar Station. Trout Mask Replica was the first CB CD. That one I really can't recommend. Track by track, this thing smokes. Hot Head" sets a four-note octave-hopping riff in motion, propelled by a Drumbo-like beat by superlative drummer Robert Williams.

If ever there was an artist whose output sums up the word "eclectic" it would be Don Van Vliet, more commonly referred to by his stage name Captain Beefheart. Whether you believe that the man was a genius and a visionary or merely an overrated buffoon, there is no doubt as to his abject refusal to play by the rules. The musical landscape at the time was of course dominated by punk rock and the looming onset of the new wave but Beefheart was anything but a conformist and refused to embrace the contemporary norms.
