Beck's Record Club - Skip Spence

Beck's Record Club is back and brilliant as ever. I've written about it before here and here. This time he's doing songs from Alexander 'Skip' Spence's solo record, the magnificent Oar. I featured the track Little Hands on April's The Monthly, after recently discovering Skip for the first time, so I'm glad I'm acquainted with the record before Beck covered it for Record Club.

In the studio this time with Beck is Wilco, Feist, Jamie Lidell (who Beck says he's working with on a new record) and most intriguingly of all a drummer called James Gladson, a guy who played on such stone cold classics as Express Yourself, I Will Survive and a bunch of Bill Withers records.

So here's that track Little Hands done by that very cool bunch of people (and that's Jeff Tweedy from Wilco's son on drums).

Here's their take on Cripple Creek with James Gladson on drums. Sweet.
