“Sorry (July 28, 2013 - Newport Folk Festival)” by Beck
It’s been a little while since I posted a Song Reader cover from Beck himself. He played a few at each of his shows a month ago. I have a couple of recordings of some of the shows I can share on here. But today I’ll start with his Newport Folk Festival appearence, because the sound quality of the recording is so good. This was an acoustic show with Smokey Hormel on guitar, Jason Falkner on bass, and Roger Joseph Manning Jr. on piano. Due to the stripped-down nature of the band, their “Sorry” sounds pretty demo-like, very pure, likely very much how Beck envisioned it on the page.
