"Music to Eat" by Hampton Grease Band
Hampton Grease Band "Music To Eat" 1971 (USA)
This is one of the more unique albums in the history of rock -- it was a dismal commercial flop, but verrry verrry eeenteresting music it is (to eat.) Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa are your main reference points of entry (in fact some of the guys in this band are thanked in the liner notes to Zappa's "Lumpy Gravy"), but these guys had an improvisational/progressive/southern style all it's own (they're from Atlanta, GA.) Amazingly, Columbia actually reissued it on CD as part of their Legacy series!
