Acclaimed album from 1980!

Doc at the Radar Station is the eleventh studio album by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, released in August 1980 to favorable reviews. Although about half of the album's songs are based on old musical ideas, Mike Barnes states that "most of the revamping work built on skeletal ideas and fragments...would have mouldered away in the vaults had they not been exhumed and transformed into full-blown, totally convincing new material."

"Generally acclaimed as the strongest album of his comeback, and by some as his best since Trout Mask Replica, Doc at the Radar Station had a tough, lean sound owing partly to the virtuosic new version of the Magic Band... and partly to the clear, stripped-down production, which augmented the Captain's basic dual-guitar interplay and jumpy rhythms with extra percussion instruments and touches of Shiny Beast's synths and trombones...Doc at the Radar Station is an excellent, focused consolidation of Beefheart's past and then-present." — AllMusic

SHM-SACD format is fully compatible with standard SACD players but it does not play on standard CD players. SHM-SACD delivers unbelievably high-quality sound. Japanese pressing.
