CAPTAIN BEYOND picture
Captain Beyond was an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1971.

The original line-up for Captain Beyond were singer Rod Evans, guitarist Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt, bassist Lee Dorman, and drummer Bobby Caldwell.

Evans was the original lead singer for Deep Purple and probably best known for his vocals on their 1968 debut chart-breaker "Hush".

Reinhardt and Dorman had played in Iron Butterfly; Dorman, in particular, played on most of Butterfly's early albums, including their 1968 breakthrough In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

Caldwell had come to prominence playing with Johnny Winter.

This line-up recorded the self-titled debut album, released in 1972. Following this album Caldwell left the band to join Derringer and was replaced by drummer Brian Glascock. Also joining the band around this time were Reese Wynans (later of Double Trouble) on keyboards and Guille Garcia on congas. The record company's chosen producer, Giorgio Gomelsky, did not like Glascock's drumming and requested a new

Following the paths of the various members of Deep Purple lead me to Captain Beyond. DP Mk I vocalist Rod Evans took up the mic for Captain Beyond. But what thrilled me was that Iron Butterfly's guitarist Larry (Rhino) Rienhardt and bassist Lee Dorman were also part of this outfit. Rhino appeared on the final Butterfly studio effort Metamorphosis before the band split up for a while (restarted later for two albums by "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"/"Ball" guitarist Erik Brann). Metamorphosis is my favourite Iron Butterfly album because of the guitar sound and variety of riffs, rhythms and time signatures.

Captain Beyond's first album does not disappoint. It starts off a rock album with no gimmicks or tricks. Rhino's innovative guitar playing is backed by a heavy rhythm section provided by Dorman's bass and the splintering drums of Bobby Caldwell (Who? Well, you know him now!). The man has a full arsenal of drumming skill and he doesn't hold back. Rod Evans was never much of a hard rock vocalist but he gives it a good effort, sometimes surprisingly on the edge, once or twice a little over the edge of his abilities. By the time the album reaches tracks four and five - "Mesmerization Eclipse" and "Raging River of Fear" respectively - you are starting to wonder if these guys plan to just rock away the whole album. In fact, there are only a couple of acoustic parts and no real ballads. Any track that starts slow doesn't stay that way for much more than a minute. Then it's back to the hard rock and roll machinegun attack. The final track "I Can't Feel Nothin' (Part II)" closes the album with a brief but rock out tune that should encourage fist pumping and head banging.

Like Iron Butterfly's "Metamorphosis", Captain Beyond's first album features ever changing guitar riffs, chord progressions, and time signatures. As my old guitar teacher said about Butterfly, "It's as if they are trying to put as many notes in the song as possible." The album has two song clusters, groups of related tracks with parts and intros. Sometimes it is hard to tell when one track has ended and the next has begun. The lyrics of "Myopic Void" close with the title for "Dancing Madly Backwards (On a Sea of Air)". On the other hand, the 15- second instrumental "Astral Lady" is nothing more than a guitar solo joining "As the Moon Speaks (To the Waves of the Sea)" and "As the Moon Speaks (Return)". You might wonder why the guitar break was only 15 seconds. What was the point of giving it a name? Maybe it was a psychedelic thing.

The guitar sound never gets really heavy with distortion. A suitable comparison would be Oasis's "F**king in the Bushes". Nevertheless, the album rocks and Captain Beyond proves to have no shortage of ideas for the guitar. By the time the album has played through you'll be wondering what hit you.

As a proto-metal album it fits the bill nicely. Highly recommended to heavy prog and 70's hard rock fans.

UMUR
"Dawn Explosion" is the 3rd full-length studio album by US hard rock act Captain Beyond. The album was released through Warner Bros. in 1977. The band had broken up by the end of 1973 but reformed again in 1976 with new lead vocalist Willie Daffern. He replaces Rod Evans (Ex-Deep Purple). Drummer /B>Bobby Caldwell, bassist Lee Dorman (Ex-Iron Butterfly) and guitarist Larry Reinhardt are still featured in the lineup.

The music style on the album is hard rock in the softer end and I´m reminded more than one time of Wishbone Ash in their mid seventies period and albums like "There´s the Rub (1974)", "Locked In (1976)", "New England (1976)" and "Front Page News (1977)". I was really impressed with Captain Beyond´s 1972 self-titled debut album which is through and through a fantastic album and I thought their second album "Sufficiently Breathless (1973)" was decent too, but on "Dawn Explosion" it´s like the music lacks power and soul. New lead vocalist Willie Daffern has a somewhat similar sounding voice to Rod Evans but he isn´t nearly as convincing as Evans. The three veterans in the band, who handle the instrumental part of the music, are all skilled musicians and that´s fortunately obvious throughout the album.

"Dawn Explosion" feautures a decent sound production that suits the music.

Compared to the more layered sound on "Sufficiently Breathless (1973)" (which featured an omnipresent piano), the sound on "Dawn Explosion" is more stripped down and hard rocking. Still it´s like the tracks are a bit halfbaked and uninspired and paired with the fact that Willie Daffern isn´t exactly a reinforcement, "Dawn Explosion" isn´t the comeback it could have been. A 2.5 star (50%) rating is warranted.

Captain Beyond's self-titled album combines hard rock heroics with prog-derived song suite structures to offer up a memorable trip. With Rod Evans adding a quintessentially hard rock voice to proceedings and Larry Reinhardt delivering a similarly muscular performance, this certainly isn't one of the more delicate or pretty prog albums of the 1970s, but it does deserve to sit alongside the early Queen albums as a good example of how prog song structures can rock with the best of them. The album was dedicated to the late Duane Allman, who had helped convince Capricorn Records to take on the supergroup, and there's definitely a certain bluesiness to the riffing here and there, so if you wanted to hear what the Allman Brothers or Cream would have sounded like had they turned their music in a proggier direction this album might just answer that question.

CAPTAIN BEYOND released this album back in 1972. They were regarded as somewhat of a super-group with two members of IRON BUTTERFLY joining DEEP PURPLE's early vocalist Rod Evans, then add session drummer Bobby Caldwell who played with Johnny Winters and many others. Many of these tracks blend into each other as we are presented with a heavy brand of music that rocks pretty hard throughout but there is a psychedelic vibe thrown in as well. This doesn't remind of DEEP PURPLE though, probably because there is no organ on this one. Surprisingly i've never fallen in love with this album but it certainly is worth 4 stars.

One of those albums that just won't let up the whole way through. Usually I shy at the thought of a "supergroup", a collection of well-established musicians coming together, but then giving you something like Asia. Not with the case of Captain Beyond, with Rod Evans from Deep Purple Mk. I, Lee Dorman from Iron Butterfly (including In-a-Gadda-da-Vida), Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt from Iron Butterfly (on Metamorphosis), and Bobby Caldwell, a session musician who played for Johnny Winter, amongst others.

Apparently Duane Allman recommended the band to Capricorn Records. The album was released with a lenticular cover, kinda like the Stones' Their Satanic Majesties Request, or the special edition version of Opeth's Heritage. Not like the Southern Rock you might associate this label with. What you have is just some really unbelievable hard rock, lots of great guitar playing, the occasional psychedelic and space rock overtones, even a touch of Southern Rock (more of the bluesy variety than the country-influenced variety). The music segues into each other, so there is no interruption (aside from flipping over sides if you own the LP). Oh yeah, if you were put off by Rod Evans' "cabaret" singing in Purple Mk. I, you'll be shocked at the bluesy/hard rock approach he does here. You can guess that had he sung like that in Purple Mk. I, he would have received greater respect. It's hard for me to pick favorites, but "Raging River of Fear" has a bit of a Cream-like feel, because the vocals remind me of Jack Bruce. It's an album you gotta hear to believe!
