Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
The Automatt, San Francisco, California
June 6 - August 27, 1978

01. Tropical Hot Dog Night (Version 1)

Don Van Vliet: vocals, tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, harmonica, whistling
Eric Drew Feldman: bass guitar, keyboards, synthesizer
Bruce Fowler: trombone, air-bass
Robert Williams: drums, percussion
Richard Josef Redus: guitar, slide guitar, slide bass, accordion
Jeff Moris Tepper: guitar, slide-guitar
Art Tripp: marimba, additional percussion (on: Tropical Hot Dog Night)

The film is Soapy the Germ Fighter (1951), a public domain film from the avgeeks dot com archive. I liked the way the audio sounded on top of this rare Magic Band instrumental take, so I left it & worked it in.

The original audio file name was "Tropical Hot Fog Night" which I don't think was intentional, but I liked that as well and left the alternate spelling intact.
