Beck tonight – continuing music from the 1996 Phoenix Festival and presented by John Peel via BBC Radio 1. Peel broadcast this concert the day after it happened (July 19th), as a re-cap of highlights from the Festival.
1996 was a watershed year for Beck. After his breakthrough single, Loser in 1994 – the release of Odelay in 1996 produced a string of hit records, topped critics polls and grabbed several awards in the process. And it was right after the release of Odelay (in June of 1996) that this concert features most of its music from, kicking the set off with Devil’s Haircut.
A memorable set from a memorable festival – topped off by the dulcet tones of John Peels introing and outroing the set.
Play loud and stay tuned for more goodies from Phoenix 1996.
