The Kid is gonna Booglarize ya

That Captain Beefheart presented us with The Spotlight Kid in the opening minutes of our battle with 1972 — perhaps the very time when we needed its reassurance the most — says a lot for the healthy development of his vision. That he would even attempt the directional changes so much in evidence here is further indication that he is worthy of every inch of our respect.
