In an attempt to capitalize on the critical acclaim for the band's prior album Trout Mask Replica, Buddah issued a promo single of "Plastic Factory" b/w "Where There's Woman." The A-side found the Captain's voice and harmonica battling for supremacy with Ry Cooder's stinging guitar licks. The B-side, meanwhile, follows him through tempo and time signature changes as he sings his opaque version of a love song. This promo single is so rare that most Beefheart fans have never seen it, let alone owned a copy.
