best beefheart blues song ever (white jam)?

this here is captain beefheart's most curious, raw and authentic blues song, a hidden treasure, buried in the spotlight kid ...
it's called white jam and it's like the very first blues ever recorded
.... a sweet conventional pop song at first, suddenly moving into archaic falsetto/blues territory ... this sweet, under-rated song is packed full of wonderful imagery ... you have to realise that "white jam" means semen (english word for "sperme"), and then it all somewhat falls into place .... now, try and work out what "flowers and yams" are .... (this is the only way to listen to the song/i made a clip/youtube refused it)

original stack'o lee blues/long "cleve" reed & harvey hull (1927, chicago)/beefheart before beefheart ... rock and roll before rock and roll
