Classic Captain Beyond Concert Set For Release

Purple Pyramid Records have set a May 21st release date for 70s supergroup Captain Beyond's 'Live in Texas October 6, 1973.'

The vintage live recording will be released on both CD and as a Double-LP and will feature liner notes by rock historian Dave Thompson.

"This was an exciting night of music! Captain Beyond at the University of Texas in Arlington... All the best..." says Captain Beyond drummer Bobby Caldwell.

We were sent this background information on the group and the album: One of the most underrated classic rock bands of the early 1970's, Captain Beyond were considered a 'supergroup' of sorts at the time and featured original Deep Purple lead vocalist Rod Evans, former Iron Butterfly guitarist Larry 'Rhino' Reinhardt and bassist Lee Dorman, and ex-Johnny Winter drummer Bobby Caldwell. Although the band only lasted three critically acclaimed albums and several tours of the US and Europe, the band's following is as strong today as it was back in their heyday! Now with the release of this rare sought after concert recording on CD and vinyl for the first time, fans can relive the magic that was Captain Beyond in concert! Recorded just after the release of the group's second album 'Sufficiently Breathless', Captain Beyond 'Live In Texas' captured the band while on tour with King Crimson.

Tracks include...
"Distant Sun"
"Dancing Madly Backwards (on A Sea Of Air)"
"Armworth"
"Myopic Void"
"Drifting In Space"
"Pandora's Box (It's War)"
"Thousand Days Of Yesterday"
"Frozen Over"
"Mesmerization Eclipse"
"Stone Free"
