Beck headlined the third night of Mountain Jam, a festival in upstate New York, between June 2-5, 2016.
This festival was webstreamed, so a soundboard bootleg of Beck's set is available. As the headliner of this fest, Beck got a little longer set and as he said, "we'll get to play some songs we don't usually get to play." The sound quality is very good, and really shows off Roger Joseph Manning's keyboards and effects.
Beck is spirited and talkative, even in parts of the show when he doesn't usually talk (like the middle of "Devils Haircut," for instance).
"Think I'm In Love" does not go into their medley cover "I Feel Love" for the first time in a couple of years (I think).
"Mixed Bizness" is introduced as, not an electric boogaloo, but a new-fangled boogaloo. "Sissyneck" goes out to all the gentlemen in Daisy Dukes.
Band introductions and solos: Dwayne - Beastie Boys' "Gratitude," Jason - Bowie's "China Girl," Roger - Kraftwerk stuff, Joey - Prince's "1999". Beck then gives a memorial about how Odelay and Where It's At is 20 years old (June 1996), and they then turn into some strange rave Where It's At.
Highlights: "Hell Yes," "Go It Alone," "Mixed Bizness." Great to get a very good recording of "Raspberry Beret" as well.
