Beck: Odelay - Deluxe Edition (01/29/08)

from pitchforkmedia:

Lord (only) knows Beck's Odelay is a readymade, ramshackle, Catskill-rockin' classic. The 1996 hunk of hot wax belongs on just about every record-holding shelf we can think of, and if you don't already have it, now would be the time that we gently chide you into heading to a retail location of your preference to pick up a copy.

Or, better yet, wait until January 29, when the two-disc Odelay - Deluxe Edition will be released from Geffen/UMe featuring 19 tracks not available on the original version. It also features brand new artwork. Pretty cool, huh?

Although the exact order of the tracklist hasn't been confirmed yet, we do know which extra goodies will be tacked on to the set, and they offer a solid overview of Beck at his cold-lampin' collagist peak. (UPDATE: FULL TRACKLIST AVAILABLE NOW! SEE BELOW) From the original Odelay sessions come the previously unreleased tracks "Inferno" and "Gold Chains", both produced by the Dust Brothers. There's the Life Less Ordinary soundtrack cut "Deadweight", known for its kickass Michel Gondry video. Then there are three remixes: Aphex Twin's take on "Devil's Haircut" (aka "Richard's Hairpiece"), UNKLE's mix of "Where It's At", and Mickey P.'s version of "Devil's Haircut" (aka "American Wasteland"). And finally, a shit-ton of B-sides: the Mario Caldato Jr.-produced version of "Thunder Peel" (which originally showed up on Beck's 1994 album Stereopathetic Soulmanure), "Clock", "Electric Music and the Summer People", "Lemonade", "SA-5", "Feather in Your Cap" (which showed up on the SubUrbia soundtrack), "Erase the Sun", "000.000", "Brother", "Trouble All My Days", "Strange Invitation", a cover of Skip James' "Devil Got My Woman", and a Spanish language mariachi version of "Jackass" called "Burro".

In other Beck news, he's been nominated for a Best Rock Vocal Grammy for the recent iTunes-only surprise "Timebomb" single, and he recently helped the White Stripes with their "Conquest". And he did something with Jamie Lidell, but we still really want to know exactly what that something is.

Odelay - Deluxe Edition:

Disc One:

Original album:

01 Devil's Haircut
02 Hotwax
03 Lord Only Knows
04 The New Pollution
05 Derelict
06 Novacane
07 Jack-Ass
08 Where It's At
09 Minus
10 Sissyneck
11 Readymade
12 High 5 (Rock the Catskills)
13 Ramshackle
14 Hidden Track

Bonus tracks:

15 Deadweight
16 Inferno
17 Gold Chains

Disc Two:

01 Where It's At (UNKLE remix)
02 Richard's Hairpiece (Aphex Twin remix of "Devil's Haircut")
03 American Wasteland (Mickey P. remix of "Devil's Haircut")
04 Clock
05 Thunder Peel
06 Electric Music and the Summer People
07 Lemonade
08 SA-5
09 Feather in Your Cap
10 Erase the Sun
11 000.000
12 Brother
13 Devil Got My Woman
14 Trouble All My Days

I'm sure this will be pricey but it seems like a solid package for Beck fans.

no discobox = no sale It does look like mostly b-sides from that era. Overall very enjoyable.

Can't find my old copy anywhere (along with Mutations), so I'll probably spring for this.

Hmm.When I heard Deluxe Edition I was hoping more for a Hi-Rez multichannel release like Sea Change or Guero. Oh Well.

Wouldn't ya know it? I just picked up a used copy of the 1-disc version at Amoeba last night. Will definitely double-dip on this one, though.

How many b-sides from that side are missing? Any Beckophiles know for certain?

I think I have all these songs because I picked up a bunch of beck singles for a buck a piece. Still may pick this up if the packaging is good.

The one I was looking for is "Electric Music and the Summer People" of which I don't have a disc copy of. There were two versions: one (1998) appeared in Stray Blues (and has Beck's post-Odelay vocals: aka the "Mutations" whiney voice he's used since then). The earlier 1996 version did not have that.

Until the release of Midnite Vultures I think I had every known Beck B-side and live recording. They're all archived on CDR somewhere. I've been picking up CD singles and import versions of his albums since then.

It's cool that there's another Skip Spence cover song. I really, really dug "Halo of Gold".

One of my favorite B-sides is from Mutations: Runners Dial Zero. I believe a member here even named themselves after that song.

I stopped being such a big fan after Midnite Vultures. I hated that album. It's still the only album I don't own and I've bought them all on Day 1.

I'd love legit releases of Golden Feelings and A Western Harvest Field by Moonlight.

Other than Inferno and Gold Chains, I've got these all somewhere else on cd or vinyl. Won't stop me from picking it up, though! It'll be nice to have them all in one place.

Speaking of which, anyone know of the cheapest pre-order prices online? DD is about $24, which seems decent...

Exactly. I thought "The Information" deluxe package would be Hi-Rez/multichannel. He definitely spoiled us w/ Guero/Sea Change. Of course, I was also hoping Guerolito would be multichannel. Along w/ The Flaming Lips, he sets or "set" the bar high, in his case.

I finally found a site that has clips of this. I listened to the clips from Disc 2 and I don't really like most of it. Definitely sounds like b-side material, in other words shit that wasn't good enough to make the regular release. I'll pass on this one.

Anybody pick this up yesterday? I grabbed a copy from a local record store last night and gave it a spin. So far, it's not bad...definitely a few keepers on Disc 2, but I'd still rather have a multi-channel mix than anything else.

i picked it up at BB for 19.99.

came with some "exclusive" little postcards.

i'm with yah on the mulit-channel longing, but i'd take a re-release with a bonus disc full o material too.

You rang?

I was looking for a new E-mail address back in 1999 and was going through some Beck albums, I was big in to him them, and looking for cool song titles.

Settles on runnersdialzero. Used it ever since.

Doesn't hurt that it's a bad ass song as well.

I hear that the first pressings have wrong lyrics on them and that he plans correct them for the second pressings.

There's copies of both on eBay right now.

http://www.whiskeyclone.net/ghost/

I used to use this (and Diskobox at beck.com ) to get the catalog numbers of singles with songs I didn't have, then plug them into auto-notify on eBay.

No b-sides these days to make buying the singles worthwhile.

My favorite Beck buy was tracking down Gus Hudson and ordering a few copies of A Hot Wild Drive in the City from him.
