Captain Beyond is the self-titled debut album by Captain Beyond, released in 1972, and featured former members of Iron Butterfly, Deep Purple, Johnny Winter, and Rick Derringer. The album cover for the U.S. release included 3-D artwork (using lenticular printing). The album was dedicated to the memory of Duane Allman, who Captain Beyond drummer Bobby Caldwell had played with in an informal capacity.
Captain Beyond is predominately guitar driven but contains a wide range of rock, heavy metal, and jazz influences often with various time signatures and broad range of dynamics within the same song. Most of the album consists of three medleys of tightly arranged interconnected songs. The first starts with "Dancing Madly Backwards (on a Sea of Air)" and ends with "Myopic Void". The second starts with "Thousand Days of Yesterdays (Intro)" and ends with "Thousand Days of Yesterdays (Time Since Come and Gone)". The third starts with "I Can't Feel Nothin' (Part 1)" and finishes the album. Songs flow directly into each other without any lag time between selections, a feature that is shared with other more progressive bands of the era such as Moody Blues and Jethro Tull.
All of the songwriting was credited to lead vocalist Rod Evans and drummer Bobby Caldwell; however, according to Caldwell from a 2010 interview, all the songs were written and arranged by Evans, Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt, and himself, with some input from Lee Dorman. Due to their still binding contracts with Iron Butterfly, Reinhardt and Dorman could not be listed as songwriters on this record for legal reasons.
It reached #134 on Billboard and was on the chart for 12 weeks.
