LIVE thursday 15.01.81 SEATTLE washington usa SHOWBOX

GENERAL INFO

Autumn 1980 through january 1981 captain beefheart and the magic band promoted
their latest album, doc at the radar station, with a tour in europe and the states.
however, as don hadn't performed live for well over a yearand a half, it took a
while before he found the right groove. after a terrible first week, the group
came into shape (also because last-minute member richard snyder 'fell in place')
and when the band returned to the usa in late november it was tight. one of the
last concerts of what would turn out to be beefheart's last tour, took place on
15.01.81 in the farthest north-west and coincidenced with the captain's fortieth
birthday. so it was very easy for the bootleggers to find a title for the show.

bootleg ceedee DON'S BIRTHDAY PARTY
luxembourg 1994 tuff bites t.b. 94.1008
complete show - digipack
time 75:12

rollin' red (paul brown) told about this ceedee in fanzine steal softly thru snow #5,
later adding changes to the text in beefheart bootlegs #2:

1994 Bootleg CD DON'S BIRTHDAY PARTY on Tuff Bites, cat.no. T.B. 94.1008.
FABRIQUÉ EN LUXEMBOURG with this amazing sleeve illustration by J. Saurer.
Although it appears to have been dubbed from the vinyl this is a great sounding
though mono CD. Credits say "These songs were recorded live at Showbox, Seattle,
January 15th, 1981" - this was Beefheart's 40th birthday. The show is complete.
This is my favourite bootleg and it is a great show, very relaxed - a bit too
relaxed during Bat Chain Puller where Beefheart appears to have wandered away
from the microphone when he is supposed to be singing, so they have to start again!

[later sentences:] This release allegedly was a race against time with an Italian
pressing that in fact surfaced a month or two after this copy (see next item - t.t.)!
This CD is by far the best choice with its glossy 'sleeve design', and is what i
guess you call a gatefold, and surely the most sensible way to present CDs.

Great to be able to hear the show in its entirety, instead of having to get each
disc carefully out of the single cover and play four sides in succession!
Pretty sure the show is mastered from the (mind: 'drawn cover' - teejo) LP,
although there is little or no hiss / crackles to speak of and at 70 minutes plus,
I guess good value for money at around £15.

I've often wondered if there were plans for this show to be officially released.
I heard it was also filmed, and I would love to get my hands on that! I guess
this was just done privately, but the excellent sound quality must have originated
from the mixing desk (there is a tape in circulation that includes all the show,
with the audience singing "Happy Birthday", and more talking between the songs).

more data:
* no other notes are given than the mentioned credits and tracklist - the inside
of the cardboard fold-out is just the title again in very big lettering.
* the glossy, great looking lay-out and the picture plate with the usual information
imprinted on a leopard skin in wrong colours (black spots on purple) recently have
mislead people to think it is an official album - so fortunately this wonderful
concert, surely one of their best ever, crept into the catalogs of some retailers
in the web and in the world.

The disc deteriorated over time - it goes FFFFT FFFFT FFFFT when you play it.
