One Foot In The Grave (Expanded Edition)
Just prior to MELLOW GOLD, Beck and future Built To Spill/then-Spinanes drummer Scott Plouf recorded this collection of low-key slacker-blues cuts that immediately became a cult sensation. The two-disc reissue precisely doubles the available material, most notably including a long-out-print K Records seven-inch, which features a particularly noteworthy original take on SEA CHANGE's moving "It's All In Your Mind." Elsewhere, it's mostly alternate takes of tracks from the ONE FOOT sessions, although they receive a boost in value from having never been released. Perhaps most importantly, the existing ONE FOOT benefits enormously from an overhaul of its humble 8-track beginnings.
