Brendan Benson - Upstairs at United, Vol. 1
453-1962 (LP)

On August, 16th 2011, Volume 1 of Upstairs at United was put to tape. This recording features four live studio recordings from Brendan Benson. Brendan and a crew of stellar musicians performed covers of “Candidate” (David Bowie), “Strangers” (The Kinks), and “Beyond Belief” (Elvis Costello). Brendan closes the record with a moving solo performance of Randy Newman’s “Love Song” (made popular by Harry Nilsson). Reflecting on the experience Brendan Benson commented, "I had a blast recording some of my favorite songs in the legendary Motown suite at the historic United Pressing Plant. Great people. Great wine. It was really special!"
