As part of 6 Music's Artist Collection on Beck, another chance to hear Matt Everitt talking to Beck Hansen in 2017 about the first key musical moments in his career.

Beck is one of the most versatile and inquisitive musical minds to emerge from the US underground. He grew up listening to folk, classic rock, punk and hip hop in Los Angeles and busking around the underground anti-folk scene in New York. This journey led to him creating albums that have encompassed blues, slacker rock, lush Americana, Prince-style soul funk, psychedelia and pop.

In the 90s, when he first found fame, he was regarded as a postmodern pop star for his skill in playfully blending the past and present, but now nearly 25 years later it's obvious he was just a great songwriter looking to see what styles worked best for his music.

Eric Burdon of the Animals examines the life, music and legacy of American folk singer Huddie Ledbetter (otherwise known as Leadbelly), who had a major influence on popular music on both sides of the Atlantic during the 20th Century.
