sure nuff n yes i do

Richard Perry's work with the Pointer Sisters in the 1980's is well known.  Recently I discovered, to my surprise, that Perry produced my favorite Captain Beefheart album "Safe as Milk".  Although the recording of "Safe as Milk" leaves something to be desired, In my opinion it is far superior to the better known "Trout Mask Replica".  The best song on this album, that some band ought to have covered by now, is "sure nuff n yes i do".  This song epitomizes why Captain Beefheart had a music career at all, it's super bluesy.
