William Goode’s Journal – Captain Beefheart

The magnificent and different Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band. They gained great critical acclaim but as is the want of the music business for a great many, didn’t make money. Oh well we still have the music.

I’d like to thank “unsung warrior” for solving the “You Tell Me” studio a month or so ago.
It apparently is a studio belonging to Jack Joseph Puig

Well done “Unsung Warrior” and thanks.

If you have ever seen the series 3 men in a boat you may have seen this segment. A nice 5 minutes around David Gilmores lovely boat studio on the Thames. Wouldn’t it be nice as the Beach Boys would say.

Built in 1911 for Fred Karno, a famous music hall impresario who managed Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy, among others, the 90-foot long boat was designed to accommodate an entire 90-piece orchestra playing on it’s upper deck. (The cost, considered exorbitant at the time, was about 20,000 pounds ($32,000 U.S. dollars).
