Top notch

"This is really high energy blues. Unsurpassed.

Around 1981 Captain Beefheart appeared on Saturday Night Live. As I recall, they played Ashtray Heart off this album. Wow! I just saw it live, by accident at a friend's apartment. Practically 30 years later I still remember that as a musical high point of my life. I hope those tapes are still around!"
Beefheart really got it right

"Beefheart's entire music career was preparation for "Doc at the Radar Station", one of his last three brilliant albums. It is the distillation of genius."
Beefheart Masterwork

"Other reviewers here have spoken positively about this recording, and I want to add my voice to the chorus. This is a real masterpiece. It's second (and a close second, at that) only to "Trout Mask Replica." Some of the most brutal, shocking and yet delicately beautiful music Beefheart has produced. Slashing guitars, intricate rhythms and crushing poetry. "Sue Egypt" and "Making Love to a Vampire ..." still give me a rush nearly 30 years after my first hearing. The whole recording bristles with fire and intensity.

If you are considering buying this disc, you probably know something about Beefheart's music--at least, you have some idea of what you might hear. So I make this recommendation without reserve: Consider no longer. Get yourself a copy. You will not be disappointed."
