The first track in this collection is probably the earliest recording of Don Van Vliet, recorded in a classroom at Antelope Valley College/High with Frank Zappa on guitar & Beefheart on vocals

Teenage Maltshop: believed to have been recorded circa 1963.4 at Zappa's Cucumonga Studio Z. as part of a Teenage Opera offered to Dot Records but turned down because of the distorted guitar. Metal Man: also recorded in Studio Z in the main studio, but with Beefheart outside in the corridor to the studio, singing whatever words were scribbled on the walls!

Avalon Ballroom 1966 was the first CB & the Magic Band, probably CB, Doug Moon, Jerry Handley & Paul Blakely. This shows the influence of Howlin' Wolf - he even says people have requested a Wolf song, before singing Evil.

Frying Pan Acetate: An alt version. Predates release on A&M

Almost Grown: Is an unreleased variation of a Chuck Berry song.

Call On Me: A Much slower version than as released on Safe As Milk.

The Moody Liz Acetate, although very similar to the recently located Strictly Personal outtake found by Sequel, is a white label test pressing with a similar as released version of On Tomorrow on the b-side.

Possibly more exciting is Korn Ring Finger. Why this was not included on the Sequel CD amazed me...An excellent track that you hope will never end.

This brings us up to the "Trout Mask Replica" rehearsals. They sound as if they were made to be part of a warm up jam to the actual recordings. You can hear Don in the background throughout blowing his sax from different parts of the room experimenting with the sound on Hair Pie variations. It was said by Beefheart that although the album was recorded very quickly, the amount of work that must have been put in by all the band members, to get to a stage where the instrumental backing was ready for Beefheart to add the vocals only he knows.

The immediate contrast between Moody Liz & Korn Ring Finger from the S. Personal outtakes is extraordinary especially considering there is barely a year between them. Ella Guru is a sheer delight to hear in its instrumental form, as are the others on the CD.

"Ha Ha! That's right...Just dig it!!"
D.V. Vliet, 1969
