Doc at the Radar Station is the eleventh studio album by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, released in August 1980 to critical acclaim. Although about half of the album's songs are based on old musical ideas, Mike Barnes states that "most of the revamping work built on skeletal ideas and fragments. would have mouldered away in the vaults had they not been exhumed and transformed into full-blown, totally convincing new material".

Captain Beefheart CD - Doc at the Radar Station/Virgin in Mint. This album, the penultimate studio album from the great Captain features an angular sound, somewhat similar to what Snakefinger was creating at around the same time, but with Beefheart's unique style of poetic lyricism. The songs, as odd sounding as they are, get an amazing performance from the band, which includes long time Zappa trombonist, Bruce Fowler, the great John French and Gary Lucas, and Snakefinger sideman to be Eric Drew Feldman.
Many of the songs on Doc either reworked or fully developed unused material composed around the time of the creatively fertile Trout Mask sessions, which adds to the spirited performances. Even if the Captain's voice isn't quite what it once was, Doc at the Radar Station is an excellent, focused consolidation of Beefheart's past and then-present.

Like its creator, Beefheart’s current album, Doc at the Radar Station, comes charging at you in much the same way: the artist and his art go on a cultural rampage, ripping and tearing at dense, lush undergrowths of melody while hurling imprecations of the airiest, most elliptical wi. This is where Captain Beefheart’s pop-art instincts jolt and enliven Van Vliet’s formal romanticism. All of this culminates in Doc at the Radar Station’s final number
