Doc at the Radar Station is the eleventh studio album by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, released in August 1980 to critical acclaim. 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".

I had just two albums with Captain Beefheart on it in the LP (vinyl) era: Zappa's Bongo Fury, which he guested on and Doc At The Radar Station. Trout Mask Replica was the first CB CD. That one I really can't recommend. Track by track, this thing smokes. Hot Head" sets a four-note octave-hopping riff in motion, propelled by a Drumbo-like beat by superlative drummer Robert Williams.

Album dedicated to Janet Van Vliet and Brian Rohan". Reissue of original 1980 USA vinyl release (VA 13148). Mastering SID Code: L385. Mould SID Code: IFPI 6100.

11-Sheriff of Hong Kong (1980-Doc at the Radar Station) - Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band. 12-Making Love to a Vampire with a Monkey on My Knee (1980-Doc at the Radar Station) - Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band. Dirty Blue Gene - Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band. 15 Carrot Is as Close as a Rabbit Gets to a Diamond - CAPTAIN BEAFHEART & THE MAGIC BAND 11 - Doc at the Radar Station (1980). 05 Sue Egypt - CAPTAIN BEAFHEART & THE MAGIC BAND 11 - Doc at the Radar Station (1980).

Beefheart eventually formed a new Magic Band with a group of younger musicians and regained critical approval through three final albums: Shiny Beast (1978), Doc at the Radar Station (1980) and Ice Cream for Crow (1982)  . The 12" B-side "Hot Head" is a Captain Beefheart song from the album Doc at the Radar Station (1980). Eric Drew Feldman (born April 16, 1955) is an American keyboard and bass guitar player.

The Magic Band, Beefheart’s tribe of sardonically dexterous musicians, follow their leader with unswerving faith. They cultivate and tend the jungle for the sole purpose of having their Captain rumble and cavort across it. Their labor is extremely worthwhile. Because it acknowledges the loneliness and powerlessness that lurk beneath the comforts of cult devotion. The record’s recurring theme of gentle, playful, uncomplicated lyricism - in the quick instrumentals. A Carrot Is as Close as a Rabbit Gets to a Diamond and Flavor Bud Living, in the sorrowful bleat of Ashtray Heart - might even be Beefheart’s method of alienating his cult, for whom his highest achievement will forever be that masterpiece of livid, frustrated communication.

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 (featuring future Pixies sideman Eric Drew Feldman, New York downtown-scene guitarist Gary Lucas, and a returning John "Drumbo" French, among others) 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. Even if the Captain's voice isn't quite what it once was, Doc at the Radar Station is an excellent, focused consolidation of Beefheart's past and then-present.
