Wow. This one is really special. . . . .

Digging through the Archives here I found this tape, which I had totally forgotten about. It was labeled " Mallard Demo ". I was soon to find out that it was not actually a Mallard
demo, but instead THE MAGIC BAND Demo ( ! ! ) . . . recorded shortly after the guys all left CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & THE MAGIC BAND in 1974. The music here is really great and I am thinking that it will be "new" to many folks. Enjoy !

(Yeah I know their is a picture of the Captain for this post,even though he is not included in the demo. But I can't find a picture of the Magic Band at all from this time period)
