Riding the recent wave of enthusiasm for the Captain's 10 Commandments for Guitarists on !!!KORRECT!!! & AC, I recommend The Brownstar Sessions. A bootleg of tracks from the 1972 sessions for The Spotlight Kid & Clear Spot records, this collection features Beefheart & The Magic Band working on familiar free-form jams, previously unknown songs, some sweet mellow moments, and early versions of acknowledged classics.
Pick it up over at The Heat Warps, a blog highly recommended for online digging.
