Quite Some Super-Group!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beck-Ola (Audio CD)
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.
