5.0 out of 5 stars Another rockin' 70's live album - not for lager boys, 5 Oct. 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beck, Bogert & Appice Live (Audio CD)
Live in Japan by the power trio/Supergroup Beck, Bogert & Appice.

Jeff Beck: guitar (ex Yardbirds, Jeff Beck Group)
Tim Bogert: bass (ex Vanilla Fudge, Cactus)
Carmine Appice: drums (ex Vanilla Fudge, Cactus)

Beck can be heard heavily using a Heil Talkbox, two years before the release of Peter Frampton's, Frampton Comes Alive. The album also contains renditions of songs originally recorded by the Jeff Beck Group, "Plynth", "Going Down," and "Morning Dew" and one Yardbirds number "Jeff's Boogie", the full setlist being;

"Superstition" - 5:17
"Lose Myself Without You" - 10:49
"Jeff's Boogie" - 3:33
"Going Down" - 3:33
"Boogie" - 4:57
"Morning Dew" - 14:11
"Sweet Sweet Surrender" - 4:43
"Livin' Alone" - 6:11
"I'm So Proud" - 5:42
"Lady" - 6:16
"Black Cat Moan" - 9:13
"Why Should I Care" - 7:20
"Plynth/Shotgun (Medley)" - 5:57

The tracks are a mixture of classic and band written tunes, Superstition is the Stevie Wonder hit that was said to have been written for Beck as a thank you for playing on Wonder's album but the song was so strong Stevie used it himself. Three Don Nix blues songs, "Going Down", "Sweet Sweet Surrender"and "Black Cat Moan", Curtis Mayfield's "I'm So Proud" the Dobson/Rose penned "Morning Dew" and "Why Should I Care" written by Ray Kennedy (who also wrote "Sail on Sailor" for the Beach Boys).

This album is on a par with live albums by other classic rock groups like Led Zeppelin's "The Song Remains The Same", Deep Purple's "Made In Japan" and Humble Pie's "Live at Fillmore". Beck gives us his range of 'stunt'guitar. But it's not only Jeff who rocks the audience Tim Bogert plays tight and dynamic bass lines whilst Carmine Appice plays solidly to create great pounding slabs of groove. This was their second and last album as once again Beck disappears into the sunset.
