Ice Cream for Crow 7" Ice Cream for Crow Doc at the Radar Station FOR WORK WITH CAPTAIN BEEFHEART:

"GARY LUCAS wrestling with the tortuous anti-logic of Captain Beefheart's solo guitar composition 'EVENING BELL' still astonishes."
THE WIRE (UK), 11/97

"'EVENING BELL' is a lovely solo guitar piece exercise for which GARY LUCAS should receive some sort of award for finger contortioning..."
ROLLING STONE, 4/83

"CARRIED OFF WITH HEROICALLY MANIC PRECISION BY GUITARIST GARY LUCAS..."
STEREO REVIEW, 1/83

"Consider Gary Lucas' solo spot 'Evening Bell,' an astonishing exercise in knuckle-cracking inversions and flamenco trills played live on a Fender Strat."
MUSICIAN, 10/82

"GUITARIST GARY LUCAS HAS THE FOLKIEST ACCENTS of any Beefheart accompanist since Ry Cooder."
THE BOSTON PHOENIX, 9/82

"'EVENING BELL,' a solo guitar piece for which Magic Bandman GARY LUCAS apparently grew extra fingers in order to negotiate his way through it..."
ESQUIRE, 12/82

"Where other groups take a lull the Magic Band take off. Gary Lucas came on and played 'Flavour Bud Living,' its taut high-pitched finger picking attack stinging the skin like a swarm of bees."
NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS, 11/80
