iTunes Editors’ Notes

Jeff Beck’s five-night stand at Ronnie Scott’s in November 2007 was such an event that Brian May, Tony Iommi, Jon Bon Jovi and Jimmy Page ventured to the club to catch the action. It’s easy to see why such heavyweights would flock to see Beck. Performing This Week captures the guitarist in his element — in a small Soho club, backed by a pared-down trio who are every bit as fearless and able as their leader. In many ways, this live document is the flip side to Beck’s other concert album, 1977’s With the Jan Hammer Group Live, which showed him before a stadium crowd in full fusion mode. Here, Beck’s performance is lean and focused. There are no unmitigated jams, and despite the intense virtuosic display of “Led Boots,” “Big Block,” and the shattering “Scatterbrain,” the emphasis is on the emotional impact of Beck’s playing. His lyricism is felt on ballads like “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers” and Charles Mingus’ “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat,” but nowhere more than “A Day In the Life.” Beck nails John Lennon’s poignant vocal and the song’s mounting anxiety. His performance is among the most definitive readings of the most challenging Beatles song.

Customer Reviews

Buy this at once!

If you love electric guitar of the STAT-O-TASTIC variety from one of THE founding fathers of ROCK music, then buy this at once! Jeff Beck is a legend and the most gifted guitarist of the British Holy Trinity of Pagen Guitar Gods. Page and Clapton both know that "Geoffory" is the "MAN." This live disc features many of Beck's signature songs from the "Wired" & "Blow by Blow" period as well as his most recent offerings. The playing is suberb. His deftness of touch, tone and nuance is unparrelled. No one can touch this guy. Sure there are "shredders" who play more notes faster, but Beck is an ARTIST. An interpreter of melody. The finest electric guitarist alive. Buy this now. ESSENTIAL listening for all musicians.

Buy them all...

Essential listening for all guitarists. Next time we spend hours obsessing over how many notes we can play in second, listen to Jeff Beck to remember that Guitar can be still a truly expressive instrument.

Can't go wrong

The Absolute Best!! Jeff Beck is King!! Words can't describe, listen! LISTEN!!!!

Biography

Born: June 24, 1944 in Wallington, Surrey, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

While he was as innovative as Jimmy Page, as tasteful as Eric Clapton, and nearly as visionary as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck never achieved the same commercial success as any of those contemporaries, primarily because of the haphazard way he approached his career. After Rod Stewart left the Jeff Beck Group in 1971, Beck never worked with a charismatic lead singer who could have helped sell his music to a wide audience. Furthermore, he was simply too idiosyncratic, moving from heavy metal to jazz fusion...
