"A Western Harvest Field by Moonlight" is an EP of early Beck recordings released on 10" vinyl by Fingerpaint Records in 1994, consisting mostly of audio experiments that he had made prior to "Mellow Gold", but there are also a few acoustic blues songs, the most well-known of which, "Totally Confused," has been revisited by Beck on several occasions in concert. Coming after "The Banjo Story" and "Golden Feelings", "A Western Harvest Field by Moonlight" is Beck's third and final unofficial indie release, all of which are extremely hard to locate.

The album has been pressed 4 times:

1994 - 3000 copies (included fingerpaintings made by Beck and his friends)

1995 - 2000 copies

1997 - 1000 copies

1998 - 1000 copies

All pressings have the album title misprinted on the spine as "A Western Harvest Moon By Moonlight"

"SEXY DEATH SODA" is scratched on the vinyl on the Bic Side, and "CHERRY CUPCAKE" is scratched on the Beek Side.

The track listing is on the spindlehole label and does not appear anywhere on the sleeve.

"Happiness grows in your own backyard" is written backwards on the Beek Side on the label just under the drawing of a little girl.

"Styrofoam Chicken (Quality Time)" is a neverending loop. It was put extra deep into the vinyl so when the needle gets to the end it jumps it back to the beginning of the track, which is actually about a second long. The needle has to be physically removed from the record for the song to end.
