Biography

Jeff Beck isn’t your typical guitar legend. His goal, in fact, is to make you forget that he plays guitar.

“I don’t understand why some people will only accept a guitar if it has an instantly recognizable guitar sound,” says Beck. “Finding ways to use the same guitar people have been using for 50 years to make sounds that no one has heard before is truly ... Read more in Amazon's Jeff Beck Store

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recorded in 1969, the Jeff Beck Group's second album, Beck-Ola, was apparently hurriedly put together in a rush to cash in on the success of their debut, The Truth. If it was then it doesn't show. Featuring the proto heavy metal sound guitarist Beck was developing, with the effortless vocals of a young Rod Stewart, bass of Ronnie Wood, organ of Nicky Hopkins and drums of Tony Newman, this is a classic album. From the down and dirty opener `All Shook Up', through to the heavy album closer `Rice Pudding' it grabs your attention and gets you involved. Key to the record are Stewart's amazing vocals -he truly sounds tortured, and Beck's guitar wizadry. No flashy pyrotechnics here, just solid, heavy blues workouts that compete with Rod for the limelight, and as often as not win out. And the icing on the cake is the iconic cover, with a copy of Rene Magritte's `The Listening Room'. Anything that uses Magritte as cover art gets extra marks in my book.

This 2006 remaster includes 4 tracks not on the original release, including a cover of a Cliff Richard song, `Throw Down a Line', which is my personal favourite on this album, and in this group's hands has a totally different feel to when the Saintly Cliff and the Shadows did it. The remastering quality is excellent, and there are some interesting liner notes. 5 stars all round.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rod-tastic 10 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Despite the fact that, according to the liner notes, this album was thrown together in a hurry as a follow-up to 'Truth', it's still a very good slice of British hard rock. If you only know Beck for 'Hi Ho Silver Lining' then you''ll be pleasantly surprised by this heavy offering: opener 'All Shook Up' is great slice of bawdy R'n'B showcasing the talents of pre-Faces Rod Stewart, and the other Elvis cover, 'Jailhouse Rock' is a good, heavy re-interpretation. Throw in some quality originals ('Spanish Boots', 'Hangman's Knee') and the playing of Beck, and you have a worthwhile album - which could have been truly 5-star had it featured a few more originals and less covers and instrumentals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jeff Beck IS the man 3 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's really proof that not all great bands come to be, I really wish Jeff Beck had done more albums together as this is fantastic. Jeff strikes the perfect balance between mojo and virtuosity. The songs, while not all original are performed well, and this is a great rocking album because of this, producing results ranging from the subtle foot tapping to the involuntary air guitar and super-puckered guitarist lips. You know the kind I mean!
If you dig good guitar and good rock & roll this'll be right up your street.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Power Rock! 5 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album along with truth clearly show where in inspiration for Led Zeppelin came from. The dis integration of the band is also an object lesson on what a short sighted (figuratively rather than literally) twit Micky Most was during the 1960's He frittered away amazing talent on his own short term goals. Iknow there is lots of evidence that excellent pop songs can arise out of factory farming methods used by many of the siccessful American label (e.g. Mowtown) but Jeff was always going to be much more album orientated. This could have been a huge band but for the meddling of Most. Thank god for Peter Grant who recognised the real potential of the direction the Jeff Beck Band was going when he was helping Jimmy Page build a new band from the ashes of the Yardbirds. The most annoying thing about what Micky Most did to undermine the rest of the musicians in Jeff Becks band was that it left Rod Stewart with a degree of paranoia about his position in the Faces so that he developed twin track group and solo careers. Had the Jeff Beck Group been allowed to develop as a true group who knows what a different slice of musical history we would be looking at now, (much more significant I think). Although there is much to admire about Jeff's work to date, and I do really love many of his albums, he has been plagued by unstable groups and bad luck and the world could have done without Rod Stewart in leopard skin print spandex and "Hot Legs" being a true lead singer in a powerful Jeff Beck Group might have spared us a lot of that

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Some Super-Group! 19 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Why is it when you tell the common-or-garden Rod Stewart fan that their idol sings on two of Jeff Beck's finest albums, they look at you as if you're the village idiot?
Not that this album or 'Truth' need their sales to be increased by Rod's status in the band, but it's just that those people think you're having a laugh, when in fact you're trying to do them a favour.
But never mind, it's their loss, and whilst Rod might be billed as 'vocalist extraordinaire,' he isn't the only 'name' on here, there's Ronny Wood and Nicky Hopkins, too; and Tony Newman was quite a well-renowned and straight-ahead rock drummer, too.
If you're into rock music in general or British rock, then this will keep you more than happy.
The original 7 track LP we bought year's ago was an axcellent piece of Jeff Beck rock 'n' blues, and it came along quite naturally after he left The Yardbirds. OK, he suffered 'Hi-Ho Silver Lining' but I bet he's never turned down a Royalty cheque from the proceeds, but here we have another 4 tracks from the vaults as the now trendy 'bonus tracks' to tempt those who bought the album originally, into doing so all over again.
