Gonzo Records is releasing a recording of Beefheart live at Harpo's in Detroit, a show from 11 December 1980. The bootleg captures a particularly hot period for the Captain, on one leg of the Doc At The Radar Station tour. The CD, from the same label that released The Lost Broadcasts DVD, contains 17 tracks and include renditions of "Safe As Milk", "Abba Zabba", "Bat Chain Puller" and others.
