Gary Lucas performs Evening Bell

Gary Lucas performs Don Van Vliet's, (aka Captain Beefheart), fiendishly difficult solo composition "Evening Bell" in concert with The Magic Band.
The piece, which was composed by Don on piano, took Gary Lucas many months to transcribe & master, & was originally recorded by Gary for the last Captain Beefheart album "Ice Cream For Crow" (Virgin 1982).

1974 Upon the My-Oh-My (Dutch TV)

Dutch TV show "Van Oekel's Discohoek", 1974.
Captain Beefheart lip sync to "Upon the my-oh-my"

Upon the My-O-My
The decks were stacked
The wind blew low, the wind blew high
The stakes were low, the stakes were high
Upon the My-O-My
Hands low, hands high,
Ho-ho-ho, hi-hi-hi
Hands low, hands high
Upon the My-O-My

How was I to know she was so shy?
Upon the My-O-My
Across the light, across the night
You can hear the Captain's cry
Hands low, hands high
Upon the My-O-My
Got to make her roll, got to make her fly
Upon the My-O-My

Now tell me, good Captain,
How does it feel
To be driven away from your own steering wheel
Upon the My-O-My . . .
