Lo-fi masterpieces
Daniel Johnston - Beam Me Up!

The prolific Daniel Johnston can be forgiven for releasing a “best of” record, particularly when he throws in a couple of new tracks (‘Sarah Drove Around In Her Car’, ‘Last Song’) and recruits the B.E.A.M Orchestra as his backing band. Fans will appreciate listening to his lo-fi masterpieces with new, lush, hi-fi production values, but with that same warbling voice.
