Description

All this is due to Beck, who has chosen to forgo his signature frenzied fretboard blitzkriegs and weave long phrases, his guitar rich, thick, and warm, sounding familiar yet different: he’s never sustained this level of grace for a full record, and his soulful playing cuts through the clean sheen of the production, always commanding attention even when he’s not demanding it.

s 'Wired' was a much more muscular albeit less unique second outing into the jazz-rock fusion style, and is quintessential album to have right next to 'Blow by Blow'.This is probably the “heaviest” Jeff Beck album, showing everybody that if you have the goods, you can blow anybody out of the water.

Thus, within a two-year span, the twin towers Blow by Blow and Wired set a standard for instrumental rock that even Beck has found difficult to match.

s 'You Had It Coming' sees Jeff Beck continue down the electronica, post-rave beat path with what is arguably the second instalment of an accidental trilogy. s 'Flash' sticks out like a sore thumb in the Jeff Beck legacy, but it surprisingly remains one of the more successful stabs at a pop album by a classic rock giant. On joining The Yardbirds as Eric Clapton’s replacement in 1965, Beck stamped his authority with psychedelic rock nuggets Over Under Sideways Down, Happenings Ten Years Time Ago and Psycho Daisies, the latter featuring Beck on lead vocals.

I had Blow by Blow and Jeff Beck with Jan Hammer when all my friends never heard of it, they were big KISS fans. He didn’t, instead forming the Jeff Beck Group where he handed singing duties to Rod Stewart and, over two albums, 1968’s Truth and 1969’s Beck-Ola, provided the hard rock and heavy metal prototype. This is Beck's Bolero, an instrumental that still sounds ahead of its time, with Beck shining with his Les Paul through a Vox AC30.It is a blues played loud and heavy and has a spectacular solo for the time, with possibly the longest feedback note to that date.
