Man with a spine

Abba Zabba, not only a delicious, taffy, peanut-butter infused candy bar, but a bluesy number from Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band. From the first proper studio album Safe as Milk, Beef begins to show us just what his glory is capable of. I once read that while a journalist was interviewing him, he got up in the middle of a question and stood next to the phone moments before it rang. YOU RULE DON VAN VLIET.

P.S. Ry Cooder plays guitar on this album.
