Just to clarify: I was talking about mainstream America, which I lazily called "white america". I was thinking about stuff you might hear on the mainstream rock stations.

>Captain Beefheart was even more unknown when he was at his peak than he is
now. To say that the US audience was "familiar with blues" because of the
work of Captain Beefheart is not very honest. He was a commerical flop by
all means.

That's not what I said. I said that the American audience was familiar with 
blues because American bands, including Captain Beefheart, regularly 
included Blues as part of their sets. It was part of the musical landscape.
