Far Beyond a Distant Sun - Live in Arlington Texas is Captain Beyond's only official live album. It was recorded in 1973, after the release of Sufficiently Breathless, with the four original members reuniting for a brief tour before Rod Evans left. The album was recorded at the University of Texas at Arlington in support of King Crimson.

The album was not officially released until 2002.

Originally this performance was available only through their fan club. Few were sold due to terrible sound quality and crude packaging. The discs were simple CD-Rs with titles silkscreened/painted on top in black, while the covers on front and back were crudely designed. They were packaged by the band members and manager Gary Graber.

During the late 1990s, the master tape was 'worked' on, and a few hundred CDs were pressed. The quality was somewhat improved, but the album still suffered from trying to rework an already bad source into something somewhat better. Bootlegs of this CD version are in circulation.
