Record Club #1 Finished / A Note On Lyrics

Beck made it through his first Record Club, and allow me to be the first to say that it was a lot of fun and quite successful. Apparently, there will be a bonus surprise early next week about it (I think I know what it is, but I’ll let you be surprised). Also, Record Club #2 will begin right on schedule, every Thursday starting next week. This will not be the Wilco/Beck cover of Skip Spence, but the album done with Devendra Banhart, MGMT, the dude from Wolfmother and Binki Shapiro from the band Little Joy. More on that later!

Also Beck’s newest newsletter notes the new discography section and comments:

We’ve put up a new music section this week we are calling ‘Collected Works.’ This is where you will find all Beck related music. It is also the only source on the Internet that contains the correct lyrics to his songs. Lyrics on all other ‘Lyrics’ sites contain errors and even completely incorrect transcriptions. We’ll be adding content from each album week to week starting with 1994′s Mellow Gold.

:( Sorry Beck. In defense, AlmostAGhost is about as correct as is possible, and I worked on those transcriptions for years with fans who email me and on message boards, and even with beck.com in the past. I’m not saying there’s no errors but in most cases, they’re as best as possible (and even more correct than Beck’s own liner notes!).

    Unless someone’s sitting there, listening to all the songs with Beck, working to make sure that each word is precisely correct, I’ll stick with AAG.

    I don’t know what Beck is going on about, because many of the lyrics on beck.com are incorrect. AAG is still the best beck resource out there, although beck.com is full of awesome lately
