Beefheart's debut album, originally released in 1967, was the most accessible and pop inflected of all the releases from his catalogue. Still 'Safe As Milk' is a very strong and heavily blues-influenced work but it also hints on many of the features that would later become the trademarks of Captain Beefheart. Not only did a 20-year old Ry Cooder play bass and guitar on 'Abba Zaba' and 'Grown So Ugly', he also arranged the latter as well as 'Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes I Do'.
 
 Also, Cooder's role in the recording process was 'to translate the Captain's wilder notions to the rest of the band and generally acts as musical director'. With him as a supervisor the sessions proceeded more or less smoothly and 'Safe As Milk' was recorded within a month.
