This is a great collection of songs by Beck and his group. Beck’s playing is really inspired, and his band provides a solid foundation for his guitar pyrotechnics. They play pretty much all of Beck’s hits, as well as several covers. Particularly noteworthy is Beck’s cover of the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life,” which is probably my favorite track from the video.
