Rather than returning to the artistic aggro of Trout Mask/Decals days, Spotlight takes things lower and looser, with a lot of typical Beefheart fun crawling around in weird, strange ways. Consider the ominous opening cut "I'm Gonna Booglarize You Baby" - it isn't just the title and Beefheart's breathy growl, but Rockette Morton's purring bass, Zoot Horn Rollo's snarling guitar, Ed Marimba's brisk fade on the cymbals again and again, and more. The overall atmosphere is definitely relaxed and fun, maybe one step up from a jam.

The Spotlight Kid, Lick My Decals Off, Baby : Captain Beefheart. CAPTAIN BEEFHEART the spotlight kid (1st uk press & lyrics) LP EX/EX- K 44162. The Spotlight Kid is by no means a bad album, but is tame stuff by Beefheart's standards. There are a few stand out tracks, but too much of it sees Beefheart and the Magic Band coasting where they should be flying. Blabber and Smoke is an enviromentalist rant against those who talk but never act, and is perhaps more pertinent today than it was 30 years ago.
