Last week, the blog mentioned the Tubes' version of Don Van Vliet's 'My Head Is My Only House...' on their "Now" album, as well as Don's contribution to 'Cathy's Clone'.

'My Head Is My Only House' is not the first time the Tubes have covered a Captain Beefheart track. During their 1976 show at the Shrine in Los Angeles they played his 'Gimme Dat Harp Boy' as a prelude to 'Love Will Keep Us Together'.

It can be found on the "Darted In My Own Armchair" Tubes bootleg.

Originally released on vinyl (in two versions), this concert got a CD re-release as "Live In Los Angeles 1976".
