Captain Beefheart w. Frank Zappa – Orange Claw Hammer (1975 radio performance)

This was performed live on KWST radio in 1975; Don Van Vliet accompanied by Frank Zappa on guitar on an incredible rendition of a track that was originally on 1969’s ‘Trout Mask Replica’. Anyone familiar with the original will know that the track consists of Don’s spoken word and nothing else. This radio performance sheds light on the possibility that it may have originally had some musical backing. Outstanding!
