Captain Beyond

Captain Beyond was a rock group formed in Los Angeles in 1972 by ex-members of other prominent groups. Singer Rod Evans (b. January 19, 1947, Slough, Berkshire, England) had been with Deep Purple; drummer Bobby Caldwell had worked with Johnny Winter; and guitarist Larry Rheinhart (b. July 7, 1948, Florida) and Lee Dorman (b. September 15, 1945, St. Louis, MO, d. December 21, 2012, Laguna Niguel, CA) had been in Iron Butterfly. This lineup made their self-titled debut album for the Southern rock label Capricorn in 1972, after which Caldwell was replaced by Marty Rodriguez for their second album, Sufficiently Breathless (1973). Captain Beyond became inactive following the departure of Evans, but it was reorganized in 1976. Caldwell returned, and Willy Daffern was added as vocalist for Captain Beyond's third album, Dawn Explosion (1977), recorded for Warner Bros. Dawn Explosion was Captain Beyond's final effort. ~ William Ruhlmann

The good old days , were such a struggle.... . .

I agree with all of you this band was WAY underrated but i think it may have been because of the change in personell and their label did not know how to promote them. But geeez musically very solid, and very well produced. The lyrics to 'Sufficientl y Breathless' were a bit odd. But who cares!!! the guitar work - and production - was great.

I was also a big fan of Iron Butterfly (Lee Dorman, Rhino, Ron Bushy and Eric Braun and others).

Love Sufficiently Breathless. Was the tune that turned me on to these guys back in 1974. Have the first two records on vinyl and love it when younger kids, especially musicians, dig this band.

Sounds like Jimi Hendrix jamming with Iron Butterfly- very underated band -members had impressive credentials

Great Band and you were right as Capricorn Records (mostly a southern rock label) did not know how to promote them. Great credentials and just just great playing all the way around. I got all 3 lps and hope to pick up these additional ones. Drummer Bobby Caldwell went to a band called Armagedeon-c h e c k out the one lp they made-again important musicianians from well-known bands. Why don't these bands get more attention? Good to see 30 years later that more people are checking them out.

The first time i ever heard of them was because my high school (class of '95' )girlfriend' s dad had a tape of it from back in the day. I tried to listen to it and it was all warped and s**tty. Fast forward to '99' when i was with another girlfriend at her dad's house. he had just gotten home and was thrilled that he finally found an album he was looking for for years. He pulled it out of the bag and I about fell over. I was so excited to finally hear it. Blown away! Hooked ever since!

I was 10 when my oldest brother got the first of their albums in the mail. Of course I thought was too cool and remembering hearing "Dancing Madly Backwards" and like many others was hooked....I still listen to the all the time 42 years later :)

The Bobby Caldwell link goes to the wrong Bobby Caldwell. Captain Beyond rules. Been into them since they hit the scene. Ahead of their time (as was predecessor Iron Butterfly), and were heads above many others musically.

Wow, Captain Beyond. The 1st album was one of those that you bought for the cover but turned out to be some good rock and roll. The second was also good. I think I still have both.

The album with hologram is the much coveted 1st LP. I have one of those myself. Picked it up in 1973 when I was in the Navy.
The 1st LP was outstanding, and I still listen to it to this day.

Honestly, if I could form a band and play the first two records I would die a happy man.These cats were great musicians. Try and track the family tree for these guys. Deep Purple, Edgar & Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray, Rick Derringer, Cactus, Armageddon and the Allman Brothers to name a few. Love these guys.

I am a huge fan of their first album, it is one of my all time favorites. I was never able to get into most of their later work though, major change in style. I still regret that I missed a concert they did where I was going to college at the time.

I fell in love with Captain Beyond when I heard their first album. I guess that would have been 1971?

I was buying a stereo system and the salesman put the first album on. I bought the stereo system. Then I went and bought the album!

After 40 years it still amazes me.

The only problem that I think Captain Beyond had when playing LIVE was that they overdubbed so much when recording In Studio, and only had four musicians to try to play all of that music for the crowds.

Capricorn did not know how to promote Captain Beyond, because the band did not fall into any catagory. If you think you know alot about 70's heavier rock music and never listen to Captain Beyond, you missed the boat. You can still get on board. Happy hunting. KEEP ON ROCKIN

All part of that time when Rock and roll was growing up and spreading its wings. Never heard these guys, but had I heard them back in the day, I'd have been impressed. This particular tune sort of reminds me of Santana c*m moody blues.

Great space band, try listening straight with your eyes closed in a rocking chair. There are quite a few albums to be found in used record shops and perhaps elsewhere.

I think that this was the most original Band/Music for its time. The first album was and still is my favorite all time album. This is Progressive Rock at its finest. Caldwell kicks a** and takes no prisoners. The word here is; "Timeless".

The first album is oozing with great drums all over it, and the second one is quite different, probably because Bobby Caldwell didn't write or play on it, but still very good.

First two records were great. Complex changes without the arrogance. Bit of Trivia. On Sufficiently Breathless, the keyboard player is Reese Wynans who was part of Stevie Ray Vaughn's Double Trouble.

Guys and girls who know good music when you hear it : Amazon .com has all these albums and more. I like the first album and Dawn Explosian. Why? because Bobby Caldwell was the drummer on these two albums and it shows. He produced and wrote much of the first album. Top 10 rock group in my opinion.

Have been a huge CB fan since day one. Anyone looking for a similar artist of a more recent vintage could draw a straight line to King's X. Particularly "Gretchen Goes To Nebraska". Would be very interested to know if Ty and the boys were indeed influenced by CB!

Dr. Avatar. I agree. My pals and I found this band in the 70s and were instant fans...it was played at all our parties. However, few ever heard of them. We only saw two albums. My ex ended up with mine too and also a waste. Dr.V thanks for info on rare CB albums, the hunt is ON.

I was rock'in to Captain beyond in the early 70's, just look'in for some good music to party to, I did own two of thier albums, but the ex ended up with them. what a shame, because she's about as musical as a terd. party on people because they don't make'm like they used to.

wheres their third album "Dawn Explosion". Their most underrated album. Its sales stats were weak, so maybe its a rare album...? Also, they have a live album from 72 that got issued in 2002. Why am I writing this here, I don't know....
