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.
Looking at this album, you would never expect it to be an all time classic. That album cover is for a lack of better words, down right hideous. It looks like someone got a little bit too trippy whilst tasked with designing a cover. Who in their right mind wants a big apple staring out a window to represent their album? I certainly wouldn't and after all this time, I would love to know the story behind that.
The music on Beck-Ola is quite simply more of the same. It acts more like Truth 1.5 rather then having its own separate identity. The album once again features some stunning vocals from Rod Stewart and some fairly under appreciated bass playing by Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood. These two deliver all the good on this one and at points they even out do the guy who has his name on the album.
The advantage Beck-Ola has over its predecessor is that Beck and company wrote more of their own songs this time round. There are only three out of the original seven tracks that are credited to another artist. These songs feature a cracking cover of All Shook Up and Jailhouse Rock (Elvis Presley). These are not the most imaginative covers but they pack a hefty punch providing the same heavy metal sound that was present on Truth. The original songs are equally impressive and range from Led Zeppelin-esque hard rock to softer bluesier numbers.
The only negative this album really has is the fact it is quite short.Read more ›
If you dig good guitar and good rock & roll this'll be right up your street.

Interesting recording in the history of Rock. Some of the tracks are a bit rough, but that's only to be expected from what is in effect a work in progress at a point in time. Read morePublished 7 months ago by eddie
