A must have in my opinion. Captain Beefheart is good but these covers are better than the originals by far.

Seriously? As most know I love TWS but these covers are a homage and add nothing to the original IMO. Am I missing something??
Don't believe the 60's was the golden age of pop. You glorify the past when the future dries up.

I dig that but far better is a stretch to me. It's like somebody adding cherry to a cake and claiming something new The grondwork was alrady laid.
