Beck’s always had great bands, of course, but this version of “Definitely Maybe” includes Max Middleton on keyboards and the late, great Cozy Powell playing drums. Beck doesn’t play this piece anymore, or doesn’t appear to have done, in quite some time but it sounds like his current band (including Narada Michael Walden) is eminently capable. Maybe I’m asking for the sun and moon, sure, but then: after you hear this, wouldn’t you love to hear him return to it in performance? Not that I don’t love everything the man turns his hands to, because there’s no more expressive guitarist alive. Anyway, check it on out, folks. You’ll love it.
