I just realized that I’ve never posted a Captain Beyond song to this blog, so here’s a song off the best progressive rock album ever recorded.
I wasn’t going to describe the band at all because they were such a large part of my life and feel famous to me, but clearly that’s not the case at all. Their singer, Rod Evans, was the Deep Purple vocalist for their first three (and best) albums. Their guitarist, Larry Rheinhardt, and bassist, Lee Dorman, were once members of Iron Butterfly. And their drummer, Bobby Caldwell, had been playing in Johnny Winter’s band up until Captain Beyond. So this record is the best. Period.
