but first, why BAKE THREE ? because of:

THEO TIEMAN * CAPTAIN BEEFHEART: CAPTAIN'S COVERS bake 1
holland 1996 stapled a5 booklet - 100 numbered copies

probably through bad luck with advertising i still have lots of copies left over of my 'fan'tastic survey of covered beefheart songs. it really is a shame! for they're all there: nearly a hundred versions by more than fifty bands, and information about the places (mainly records) where you can hear and even obtain them. believe me: a deep research like this was never done before.

or maybe the ridiculous low price i ask for the 40+pages summary is too suspicious: i have to admit i myself wouldn't buy anything which ONLY costs FIVE US DOLLARS and has the POSTAGE INCLUDED. dear me, i'm afraid i'm gonna get stuck with this load of optimistic publications, and really have to use it as give-aways! so, if there are humans who pity me, e-mail me and you'll get my snail address to send your money to, and soon you'll receive your special, numbered copy.

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART ELECTRICITY * CAPTAIN BEEFHEART: CAPTAIN'S COVERS bake 2
cyberspace 1996 internet document

a newfangled second bake was served without hand-written text and paper. thanks to the possibility of changing the electronic version on the spot, it eventually included a lot of additions to the plain lists till further internet developments led to a total different approach twenty years later.

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART ELECTRICITY * CAPTAIN BEEFHEART: CAPTAIN'S COVERS bake 3
cyberspace 2019 internet document

because in the course of time a substantial amount of cover versions was and is released on the web as free sound (too), a new e-issue had to be created consisting of as many links as possible - though the editor can't be blamed if some of those turn out to be dead.
