Beck-Lonesome Whistle // Hank Williams, Sr. Cover

January 30, 2011 — Leave a comment

During my first couple years of college I had a 20 inch television that got about 9 channels. I lived on Jamba Juice and Ramen. I watched Jeopardy, a ton of Cosby Show reruns, and at least four episodes of The Simpsons per night. I’d also scour PBS for new and old episodes of Sessions at West 54th and Austin City Limits. This particular video from Beck’s performance on ACL, a cover Hank Williams Sr.’s “Lonesome Whistle,” really sticks out. Sea Change had recently obliterated my mind (still does) and well, I love hillbilly music. You should too. T//

UPDATE: YouTube pulled the ACL version of Beck doing the song and now all we’re left with the below performance. It’s still good IMO, just not as polished.
