"‘Magneticism II’ features some of the finest ‘live’ performances by Captain Beefheart & his Magic Bands, many being previously unreleased rarities.

Led by California's enigmatic singer/songwriter: Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart), his various Magic Bands were faithful in their pursuit to realise his musical visions. ‘live’ they always shone and these joyously, unforgettable performances make this a truly important collection of work, showing a unique and innovative ring master directing his collaborators in staggering form to ecstatic crowds.

These recordings also give a broad scope of the Captain’s catalogue of work with material from the beginning of his career right up to his final compositions - reminding us today why he is still regarded as one of the most important and influential musician/artists of the Twentieth Century. To quote the Captain: 'If you got ears- you gotta listen'..........
