Beck's Record Club (2009-2010)

I only just found out about this. Apparently back in 2009-2010 Beck would get a bunch of folks together in a studio and cover a whole album in a day. The songs got posted as videos to his Vimeo channel.

Albums covered were:

The Velvet Underground and Nico
Songs of Leonard Cohen
Oar
Kick
Yanni Live at the Acropolis

It's pretty all over the place but some of it is really good. Seems like a fun concept and very much in the spirit of Song Fight!/AAD/FAWM/RPM/etc.

Maybe for Song Fight! Live next year, the folks who attend attempt to cover a whole album the day before the shows! (As if we don't have enough to do on SF!L weekends, lol!)
