Amoeba Review

Tiffany Anders 09/01/2010

 It is hard to fathom any best of compilation when it comes to the works of Captain Beefheart: all his albums are a special journey and best listened to as a whole. However, The Dust Blows Forward: An Anthology does a pretty terrific job of giving a thorough overview of this incredible man’s career, spanning from his first 1966 single “Do Wah Diddy” to his last album Ice Cream For Crow. The 45-track collection features such favorites as “Electricity” (off of Safe As Milk), “China Pig” (off Trout Mask Replica), and “I’m Gonna Booglarize You Baby” (off of Spotlight Kid). It also includes some rarities like “Little Scratch” (an outtake from Clear Spot) and “Hard Workin’ Man.” While there are some glaring omissions on this release, it is nevertheless an ideal place to start for those looking to get acquainted with the works of Captain Beefheart.
