RELEASE AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW; SHIPPING PLANNED FOR WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13

The Zappa Family Trust is for the first time ever making the legendary Captain Beefheart album Bat Chain Puller available in its original format. Recording for the album began in 1976 and was completed but was never released on Frank Zappa's label that Beefheart was signed to at the time, due to “all the usual financial difficulties in the proverbial record business, including breach of contract with the artist, lawsuits with artist management and distribution for the label," according to sources.

Different recordings of some of the songs were released elsewhere, but this will be the first time Captain Beefheart fans will be able to hear the album the way it was intended. The release is available for pre-order now and shipping is planned for the week of February 13. Click here for more information.
