Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band have today’s almost forgotten track

I went looking to see if I could find the second track in this clip this morning, but I’m glad to post both Diddy Wah Diddy (one of the heaviest songs in its day) as well as Who Do You Think You’re Foolin’ which I was not looking for…what shocks me is that Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band taped these performances for the Dick Clark after school series Where the Action Is, a lip sync on location music show, which I watched almost every day, though I’m sure I missed this one as I’m certain it would have stuck in my memory forever, and I’ve never seen it before…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
