5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Power Rock!, 5 April 2006
This review is from: Beck-Ola (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
