About this deal

With the Big Town Playboys offering support, Beck rips through 18 Gene Vincent numbers (not "Be-Bop-a-Lula," however), paying tribute to Vincent's guitarist, Cliff Gallup.

The heavy presence of Tony Hymas' synths gives an unintended nod towards what Jeff would do with his mid-80's period, but it is an uncomfortable gel at times. The Jeff Beck Group rehaul a couple of Elvis Presley standards: "All Shook Up" and "Jailhouse Rock" and collaboratively written band lyrics with guitar and piano improvisations over the top of them. on our list of the Top 10 Jeff Beck Songs), Beck's 1975 album also included a pair of cuts penned by Stevie Wonder. This is Beck's Bolero, an instrumental that still sounds ahead of its time, with Beck shining with his Les Paul through a Vox AC30. His 1967 debut solo single, Hi Ho Silver Lining, made the UK Top 20, proof he could achieve success as a mainstream artist should he wish.

Yet there is a simple reason why to this day no wedding disco is complete without Hi Ho Silver Lining – it’s as wonderful a burst of joy and optimism as the ‘60s produced.

After Les passed away, Jeff Beck decided to honor the great man and set up a concert that has to be heard. The material itself may not be top-notch but Spanish Boots contains a great riff and spectacular work by Beck, while Plynth (Water Down the Drain), The Hangman's Knee and Rice Pudding once again make it possible to draw comparisons with Zeppelin, especially seeing how, despite the fact that Beck and Stewart are better instrumentalists than Page and Plant, the scales clearly fall on the side of Zeppelin because the songs are so much better.What distinguishes 'You Had It Coming' from fading into the past as an inaccessible product of its time is always the playing: otherworldly, dipping, bending, and sounding like anything other than a normal guitar.
