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.

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.

If you haven't heard this band, then you really should. Quite aside from Beck's overwhelming reputation as a brilliant virtuoso who wrote the roadmap for rock guitar; they are so tight as a band. There is not a weak link here. No wonder this album and its predecessor, Truth, were quite so influential.

When it comes to releasing a follow up to a perfect album, fans and followers will get nervous and rightfully so. After all a perfect album is not exactly easy to replicate and doing so might not be a good thing. In some cases that is exactly what is needed and that is precisely what you get with Jeff Beck's second album Beck-Ola.

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.

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.

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
