REWIND: Beck - 'Where It's At'

More wonderful music from 1996 as RW/FF takes you aboard a musical TARDIS on a journey through musical history. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s, consider this a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts make a fine nostalgic blast from the blast.

Today's track comes from Beck's 1996 album 'Odelay', an album that still sounds ahead of its time today. Combining country, hip hop, grunge and a variety of other styles, 'Odelay' is an eclectic classic. I wasn't aware of Beck until I heard 'The New Pollution' in 1997, another song taken from this album. But today I'm going to go with the brilliant 'Where It's At', which was released as the album's first single in 1996, reaching number 35 in the UK singles chart. Here's the full length album version for you to enjoy.
