Alastair Dickson: The following year, I seem to recall that the Magic Band played Paris, either financed by or at a benefit for a French Trotskyist group ... And continuing on interesting concerts, around 77, wasn't there a double-headed Magic Band and Prime Time concert? That would have been wonderful, given that they were the only two bands to be operating a sound based on 2 guitars playing very different lines.

Alastair Dickson: On the subject of Captain Beefheart outside the English speaking world, I have this vague memory that a Magic Band circa 76 was scheduled for a concert in Paris but not the UK etc. My recollection was that this was at some kind of festival organised by a French Trotskyist party. Anyone confirm this or tell me that my memory's faulty?

Robert Williams: One of my favorite shows was the one we played in Paris on November 11th, 1977 at the Hippodrome. There were ten thousand kids under the big top that night.
[Scott McFarland: WAIT FOR ME! Robert Williams Pants Out. Private source. Early 1997]

John Gray: How did it go in Paris at the Hippodrome?
Don Van Vliet: The people were dancing to Trout Mask Replica music! I mean dancing! In France!
[John Gray: Dancing With the Captain. The Bat Chain Puller Is Flushed With Optimism. Sounds. December 12, 1977]

John Morthland: He's feeling particularly sprightly right now - just came from Paris, where he played before 10,000 at a National Socialist Party music festival, the highlight of a tour that's done quite well despite there being no new album in the stores or record label behind him. In truth, this could conceivably be his time. Earlier in his career, he was the number one weirdo for audiences that prized weird above and beyond all else. That's a lot of baggage to carry, and in more subdued times such as these, perhaps his music can be taken strictly on its own terms and viewed as the unique, vital stuff that it is.
[John Morthland: The Number One Weirdo Comes Back To Earth. Gig, February 1978]

John Orme: Don Van Vliet is a happy man. A fortnight ago he brought his new Magic Band to Paris for its European debut, and although the gig is now three days away, it is easier to whistle a dance-along selection from Trout Mask Replica than to stop him talking about the success of the concert and the band.
Don Van Vliet: This band is so good - the best I have ever had! They play with a smile. They really breathe up there when they are playing. After all this time I have finally found the band I'm looking for. It's amazing! Playing with this group is like going for a walk: they are so happy when they play. People I meet from the audience have been coming up and telling me how pleased they are that I have finally found a band that I am content with - and they are right.
The gig we played in Paris was monstrous. It was three days ago, but I haven't slept since - it was so good! And my voice, well, I can still feel that show in my voice. It hit me so hard I am down to three octaves .... I couldn't get over the way the audience was singing along with it, singing the words back at me in English - and I don't speak a word of french.
This group, I tell you, I couldn't believe that there were such nice people still around on this earth. True, they are playing what I have written, but they really are playing. This band is moving so fast that very soon I won't have to tell them anything. I really must say: this band is the best ....
[John Orme: Captain Horn-Blower. Melody Maker, December 12, 1977]

Don Van Vliet: I played a thing in France - a festival. There were ten thousand people in the rain, and me under a thing where the rain didn't hit me. I was feeling sorry for the people in the rain. Things like that are hard if you're at all feeling. I apologised at least twelve times, I probably bored everyone to tears. That's not good business. god, that was terrible. It's wonderful to see people out in the rain, but not with me under a canopy. Do you know how cold it was that night? It would freeze the fur on a
fishing pole, I'll tell you that. Contact lenses would be frightening in that kind of cold. I think it must have been at least ten below.
[Byron Coley: Captain Beefheart Pulls A Hat Out Of His Rabbit. New York Rocker #18, January 1979]

Great show with a great setlist, from one of his comeback tours, in which he proved to still be the great Captain everybody knew and loved. This is, apparently, a second source compared than the one perviously circulating. I don't know how this compares to the other source, as I don't have it, but this is from the master and sounds pretty nice. This version, anyway, apparently misses the last three songs ("Veteran's Day Poppy", "The Blimp" and "Big Eyed Beans from Venus"), which, unfortunately, I don't have.

This is a re-tracked re-seed of the recent dimeadozen seed. If you want to help seeding, rename everything as above and trash files 01, 06, 19 and the fingerprints.

Thanks for sousmarin for taping and sharing

Enjoy !!

Thanks for the posting.

I sometimes see a listing for another (?) show with an identical setlist at the Hippodrome the following night (November 20). Could there be a second show floating around or is there some just some blurring about the date?

Leave? Now? At these ticket prices?
