LEONARD COHEN: The Songs Of Leonard Cohen (1968)
Beck & Friends Tackle Leo Live

The second installment of Beck’s take on the classics, another free release, recorded in a day and issued a track a week via live studio videos. As on No. 1, the recordings feature rotating characters, this time including Devendra Banhart and a few guys from MGMT and Wolfmother (among others). Hear the original while you’re at it, too. Beck is already posting videos for No. 3, Skip Spence’s underground folk/psych oddity, Oar. Hit the website to see them all. (@320)

    Thanks to Willard for the second installment of Beck's great & quirky deconstructional funk. Always a blast to hear his take on things. Now I wanna hear him do "Beggars Banquet". And have a merry Thanksgiving by the way, with giblets & gravy for all.

    I was hoping you'd put this one up, as I enjoyed the VU one a lot. Thanks Willard! You are of awesomeness…

    Thanks! Some of this is definitely sacrilege I can support, esp Master's Song. And the rest is worship I can respect.

    Thanks! If Wilco is involved in Oar's rehash, nothing can get wrong

    I've checked out the videos, but for ease of listening, these mp3s are wicked.

    Thanks!
