Trout Mask Replica was the third studio album by Beefheart and his Magic Band released in June 16 1969. The album combines elements of garage rock, blues, R&B and has avant-garde approaches. The album divided the critics but is regarded as a cornerstone of art rock and experimental.
Much of the album was produced by Frank Zappa. After eight months rehearsing in a commune house in Los Angeles it was recorded in March 1969 at Whitney Studios in California. The Magic Band consisted of Bill Harkleroad and Jeff Cotton on guitar, Mark Boston on bass guitar, Victor Hayden on bass clarinet, and John French on drums and percussion. Beefheart played several brass and woodwind instruments, including saxophone, musette, and natural horn, and contributed most of the vocal parts, while Zappa and members of the band provided occasional vocals and narration.
We regard this album as an essential and highly recommend it if you want to venture off the beaten path.
