Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band - 1970 - Lick My Decals off Baby

Lick My Decals Off, Baby is a record by Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band released in 1970 on Frank Zappa's Straight Records label. The follow up to his Trout Mask Replica, it is regarded by some critics and listeners as superior to the famous 1969 recording, and was Van Vliet's personal favourite. Don Van Vliet said that the title is an encouragement to "get rid of the labels," and to evaluate things according to their merits rather than according to superficial labels (or "decals"). Musicians on the album were Don Van Vliet, vocals; Elliot Ingber and Bill Harkleroad, guitars; Mark Boston, bass; Art Tripp, marimba, drums, and percussion; and John French, drums. French had been arranger and musical director on Trout Mask Replica. Van Vliet ejected French from the group – both figuratively and literally, by throwing him down a flight of stairs – shortly after Trout Mask Replica was completed, and these roles passed to guitarist Bill Harkleroad. French returned to the group shortly before recording began. The record contains some of Captain Beefheart's most experimental music and remains memorable for both the marimba playing of Art Tripp and for its concise instrumental work.
