All songs written by Captain Beefheart.

This album has lyrics that come with it, however, they do not exactly match the songs sung. The lyrics shown here are the written ones from the album. Some songs are instrumentals, and (of course) have no lyrics.

Included are also other songs/poems? that are not sung on the album but are written inside.

This is a reproduction of a Don Van Vliet painting included in the album.

This is an alternate cover to the album. According to Gerry Pratt, the source for this picture, this is a paste-up version of the original cover to Lick My Decals Off, Baby. The cover photo shown at top was shot on the set of the Warner Bros. movie "Hotel."

Shopping Guide:
An amazing album. The Magic Band was used to playing the odd rhythms found in Trout Mask Replica and also had Art Tripp participating, so the sound is very focused. While smaller in scope than Trout Mask Replica, the album has a very coherent structure, and is somewhat easier to listen to. It's my favorite album. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to find, especially on CD.
