When this was first mentioned in the other thread, I was unsure if Thurston was just kidding. But now read this:

Beck covers Sonic Youth’s EVOL in its entirety

Saturday, February 28th, 2009
Last November, Beck and his band covered on stage, “Star Power.” This is a Sonic Youth song from their album EVOL. A few months later, it was announced that Beck was releasing a cover of “Green Light,” which is also from EVOL. That release was a single, the b-side being a Sonic Youth cover of “Pay No Mind” no less!
What does all this EVOLness mean? We learned today, thanks to our friends in Japan, that Beck has covered the whole album. He said this in an interview/article with a Japanese magazine. I’m told it will be part of some Sonic Youth box set. I know SY has been releasing Deluxe versions of their albums, so maybe EVOL Deluxe? Or maybe some greater box set project?
Regardless, this is super interesting and really a fun thing for Beck to have done!

He seems to have a habit of doing this. He's re-recorded the VU And Nico album in its entirety too.

I think a re-recording/cover/however it's called does not diminish in any way the "value" of the original record.

Of course it's perfect. It's my favorite album of all time.

But I see nothing wrong with Beck re-imagining it in homage. I'm pretty sure it's his favorite album as well. And if the rest is anything ike his "Green Light," then it's going to be a really cool tribute.

Exactly. It's not like Sonic Youth are rerecording it or anything. It won't take anything away from the original record.

I really loved the Green Light cover.

Yeah, "Green Light" was beautiful. I just feel like Beck is using EVOL to tap into something magic for himself. What I mean is, he was so inspired by SY when he was younger... and it's like he's playing the songs the way he heard them in his head when he was just a boy with an acoustic guitar (like when he recorded those early folk tapes like Banjo Story, Fresh Meat and Old Slabs, Western Harvest Field By Moonlight, One Foot In The Grave and Golden Feelings). It's like the sonic perfection of those 9 (or 10) songs has made him re-discover his own music.

When OFITG was re-released, some vinyl packs came with a Sunday Morning 7" of Beck covering the VU song with a band, one member of which was Nigel Godrich. Godrich later let slip that Beck had recorded the whole album..
