Notes: A smaller acoustic show! I don't think Beck's done a public acoustic show in awhile. This one is credited to "Beck And Friends," the friends being his great touring band. "We don't have any real big plans tonight, but we have a list of songs," Beck admits. So they run through a bunch of different songs, all done in raw acoustic style. Lots of chatter, joking around, figuring out what song to play next. This show is great! One of Whiskeyclone's new favourites, and an instant classic.
Live debuts of "Strange Apparition," "Winter Is Blue," "Stormbringer."
The new acoustic rendition of "Scarecrow" really brings out the blues of the song.; "Winter Is Blue" is a Vashti Bunyan cover.; It's especially fun hearing the songs you wouldn't expect to be done acoustic, like "Black Tambourine," "We Dance Alone" (with lo-fi Casio beats), "Cellphone's Dead" (video below!), "Girl," and "Nausea.";
