RECORD CLUB, the informal and irregular gathering of various musicians to record an album in one day’s time, has begun posting tracks from its third endeavor. The current album is SKIP SPENCE’s classic OAR and as reinterpreted by Beck, Wilco, Feist and Jamie Lidell. First track “Little Hands” is up now at Beck.com and new tracks will be posted every Thursday in the same order as the original album sequence.
RECORD CLUB’s version of OAR came together in June of this year when Wilco joined Beck and Lidell managing to record all 12 tracks in a night. Leslie Feist happened to be in town editing her documentary and joined in, as did drum legend James Gadson, known for his timeless work with Bill Withers. The session took place at Sunset Sound Studios in the same room where the Rolling Stones recorded much of Exile On Main Street.
