Boomkat Product Review:
A classic of the K Records catalogue, Beck's One Foot In The Grave (made with the assistance of the great Calvin Johnson) was recorded immediately before his breakthrough Mellow Gold LP, and closely embraced the folk and bluegrass roots that have always been key to Beck's writing (notably, the first track is a cover of Skip James' 'He's A Mighty Good Leader'). The album was also a touchstone of the '90s lo-fi movement, exemplifying the kind of grungey spontaneity that made American independent music of the era so vibrant. Given the current resurgence in this sort of recording strategy, this deluxe reissue sounds oddly very in tune with 2009 - and it's a good thing too, because there's more of this album now than there ever was first time around. This edition features some 13 unreleased tracks, led by an embryonic version of 'It's Al In Your Mind', later to be recorded more formally for the Seachange album. There's a real feast of music here, even for those of you already familiar with this era in Beck's output, and if you've never heard One Foot In The Grave before, you'd be advised to dive in immediately; songs like the Syd Barrett-esque 'Cyanide Breath Mint' and the flat out brilliant 'Asshole' are well worth getting acquainted with.
