Various - Mama Kangaroos (Philly Women Sing Captain Beefheart) download album
A various artists compilation featuring women artists from Philadelphia performing 20 Beefheart songs with imaginative arrangements. Label: Genus Records Released: 7th June 2005. The Neon Meate Dream Of A Octafish album was good but some of the tracks tried to ‘out-weird’ Beefheart and failed. Mama Kangaroos has taken a different approach to Don’s music. It’s obvious some thought has been put into each and every one. Instead of going for copies of the originals the bands have, in most cases, taken Don’s lyrics and set them in very different musical landscapes.
Released during a time when there is an overabundance of ideas and talent, Genus Records somehow finds a truly innovative vehicle to expose new artists - the use of the tribute album with material from one of rock's true genius madmen. Mama Kangaroos: Philly Women Sing Captain Beefheart could have probably given Don Van Vliet a much larger platform had it been released in the '70s. Global Transmission take "The Witch Doctor Life" and turn it into highly listenable pop. In fact, producer Mike Villers, who treated the world to the music of Jim Carroll on the adventurous Put.
Mama Kangaroos features twenty emerging and established female artists from Philadelphia performing the songs of painter Don Van Vliet, the man better known as the legendary musician Captain Beefheart. The genre-hopping set covers material spanning the entirety of the Captain's 17 year recording career, while showcasing a diversity of talent and style that once again proves Philly to be one of the country's most vital music centers. A really wonderful record.
In 2005 Genus Records produced Mama Kangaroos – Philly Women Sing Captain Beefheart, a 20-track tribute to Captain Beefheart.
