RIP, even though I don't "get" Trout Mask Replica.

sad...Trout Mask doesn't do much for me either (except a few good 'uns like Moonlight on Vermont), but some awesome stuff elsewhere. I particularly love the early 70's couple - Lick My Decals Baby, Mirror Man, Clear Spot, and his collab. live one with Zappa - Bongo Fury. No one else quite like him likely to be seen again. RIP

pretty cool set from '68 (not sure if that's Ry Cooder playing with them here though he did on the album and it sounds like him...) >

Yeah, one of those guys where I never quite got the music, but I liked the man's style.
