Notes

Also pressed as Yellow: Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band - Safe As Milk
and regular: Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band - Safe As Milk

This release was created with the shortly to be deleted brown pink-rim Buddah label, on translucent red vinyl. Manufactured by Disques Vogue, the vinyl is housed in a 'Vogue' imprinted natural brown paper sleeve with punch-holes.

The laminated cover features the Langdon Winner quote and, apart from the infilled text in cover fisheye image, reproduces the original art. The newly-designed Bell/Arista logo appears on the cover. Some French text also appears on the back:
"Distribution VOGUE P.I.P. 93430 - Villeneuse".
"Grave et Presse en France".
"Imp. De St. Michel - 872 - Ambazac - Printed in France".
℗1970 Buddah Records, Inc.
"Made in France by Disques Vogue P.I.P." on labels.

(Some covers may have a "ROCK" oversticker - which is possibly a marketing tactic for an outlet's 'File under' strategy. See images.)

Track A1 on label is mis-titled "Sure 'Nuef 'N Yes I Do" [in caps as 'NUEF being misunderstood in transcript]Originally released in 1967.
Reissue using the original Buddah Records label graphics and catalog number.

Dagdalas
I'm not a fundamentalist audiophile, but this edition is totally unlistenable. Avoid it!
Runeterror
Sounds muddy. Bought an early 80's repress, at least it is an analog sourced pressing. This sounds like it was cut from a CD.
Unsoo
I think this pressing sounds pretty good. No extra noise that isn't supposed to be there, nice clean pressing.
Kage
This is not a good-sounding repro of this album. Bought in good faith, if I was able to throw away ANY record in my collection this would be in the garbage already. If you're buying something to look at, it's kind of OK. If you're buying for listening to, forget about it and splurge on a remaster - I'll be doing that.
