Now Playing Tracks

"I’m Down" by Beck

So Beck has said in a few interviews that he might consider playing some of Song Reader live, especially now the book has come out and there are other versions out there too.  At this point, Beck has only played one show though—a benefit gig a few weeks back in Los Angeles. 

Beck was performing as a trio, with Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Roger Joseph Manning Jr.  They played a very country-fied take on “I’m Down,” clearly unrehearsed and improvised (Beck forgets the words) but this is how Beck hears the song.  Fun to compare how it goes with how everyone else hears it!
