Live+ did not enter the Gaon Album Chart, but it peaked at number 39 on the component overseas album chart in 2015. Simply put, this is a wonderfully produced effort and a significant entry into the artist's extensive recorded legacy. Beck-Ola is Jeff Beck’s second studio album by the Jeff Beck Group released in 1969 and features the same lineup as Truth including keyboardist extraordinaire Nicky Hopkins. Like the A side, the B side was a selection of titles from the band's debut album, Five Live Yardbirds, released in 1964 when the lead guitarist was still Clapton.

In addition to being a personal milestone, Blow by Blow ranks as one of the premiere recordings in the canon of instrumental rock music. His style of playing was classified as “Raga Rock” since his sound was influenced by the Indian sitar. While BBA never succeeded on a visceral level, there are some interesting musical moments to come out of this brief collaboration, but Jeff Beck needed to get serious after this. The album includes vocalist Rosie Bones and is a showcase for Beck to demonstrate the fact that his guitar playing still rocks and is capable of captivating listeners with other worldly sounds.Beck sounds terrific as he reconstructs Gallup's parts, but he doesn't add anything to the originals.

No, not Beck, as in Beck Hanson, whom, for the two cents worth, is one of the relatively few truly gifted and ultra talented stars of today’s popular music.Beck and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons had been close friends for decades (see the clip below of Beck presenting Gibbons – “the guy who made beards famous” – with his MOJO award in 2009). To say that Jeff Beck is running out of ideas on 'Jeff', the third album in his electronica trilogy, would be unfair; it is quite clear that the man could churn out albums in the vein for the remainder of the decade if he'd like to. Mickie Most produced both albums that included Future “Faces” frontman Rod Stewart along with future bottleneck guitar wizard Ron Wood.

BTW, Stevie Wonder’s original recording of “Superstition” does not include Jeff Beck on guitar, in fact there’s no guitar at all on it! B. King and Steve Cropper, he honed his craft from 1963 in The Tridents, a four-piece led by the Lucas brothers, bassist and vocalist Paul and rhythm guitarist John. Here, Beck surges onward in altogether stunning fashion via his quirky lead lines, sweet-tempered slide guitar work, disfigured extended notes and deterministic mode of execution. This album needs a fire extinguisher nearby, such is the energy and great sounds of good old fashioned real rock and roll and good times. The interesting thing is that such a solid record was made with such rapidity, but we cannot help but feel this is a style that Beck won't stick with for much longer.For jazzier edges and funkier grooves, Jeff employed the likes of keyboardist Max Middleton and singer Bob Tench in an effort to shed the heavy metal image and make not only a more accessible sound, but a greater platform of freedom for Jeff to get closer to that sound he was restlessly pursuing; there are moments of this when the group ventures into extended, funk-inflected, reflective jazzy instrumental sections. Beck was embarrassed by his accidental 1967 hit, referring to it as like having a pink toilet seat hung around his neck for the rest of his life.

Jeff Beck and the legendary Les Paul were good friends, and often when he was stateside Jeff would go to Les Paul’s weekly gig and jam with his own hero.

With producer Nile Rodgers at the helm, Jeff Beck contributes some fine riffs and melodic bursts to many catchy and cliched 80's AOR lyrics such as "Ambitious", "Nighthawks" and "Gets Us All In The End", but the glorious moment is his reunion with Rod Stewart on the lovely if vain "People Get Ready".Opening with a Jeff Buckley tune, the heaviest rocker soon takes off on “Hammerhead”, with a killer blues riff augmented by a real orchestra. Beck's career was also littered with scores of notable guest appearances, including work with the likes of Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Kate Bush, Paul Rodgers, Morrissey and, most recently, Ozzy Osbourne on Patient Number 9 in 2022. com claims ownership of all its original content and Intellectual property under United States Copyright laws and those of all other foreign countries. THX 138” is a frantic guitar run reminiscent of early 1960s guitarists like Duane Eddy and Dick Dale while “Declan” sounds Celtic.
