I’ve Got 2 Turntables and a Microscope

beckOn January 29th, genre-confused slow-talking Beck released a double-disc deluxe version of his 1996 album Odelay that includes sixteen B-sides and compilation tracks that been released in the US before, as well as two never-before-released songs from the album’s original sessions “Inferno” and “Gold Chains, produced by the Dust Brothers, of the best Hip-Hop Album ever Paul’s Boutique fame. The second disc also includes remixes by Mario Caldato Jr., Aphex Twin, and U.N.K.L.E., plus “Burro,” a Spanish-language rendition of “Jackass” recorded with a mariachi band. Sound’s pretty sweet, huh?
Well, soon to be a collector’s item, the initial run of Beck’s aforementioned tenth anniversary edition of Odelay was mistakenly shipped to stores with a lyrics booklet that contained “unproofed lyrics that were taken from a lyrics website.” Or, rather than asking Beck the guy who sang the songs himself, the lyrics were taken, for “layout purposes,” from one of them websites you go to when you want to figure out what Snow is saying in Informer. Beck apologizes for the oversight, and is setting up arrangements to provide anyone who purchased the incorrect lyrics booklet with a true and corrected version, free of charge. Some at eargoggles wouldn’t notice the incorrect lyrics. “She’s alone in a new delusion” even though “She’s alone in the new pollution.” He may indeed have a Microscope and a couple of record players.
