iTunes Editors’ Notes

Jeff Beck is one of rock music’s most skilled guitarists. While his fellow guitarists in the Yardbirds went on to greater fame and fortune (Eric Clapton is the blues-guitar god and Jimmy Page, of course, was the Led Zeppelin master) Beck was the man who could never keep a great band together and who has walked away from the music business when it doesn’t serve his purposes. That said, he is a genius, and this intimate performance at the Grammy Museum is one of breath-taking intensity. His version of the Beatles’ “A Day In the Life” is a stunner.  “Corpus Christi Carol” is beautifully lush on the outside, but Beck’s incredible phrasing makes all the difference. “Over the Rainbow” climaxes with tones that only Beck can carry. In many ways, he is the Chet Baker of guitar. His intense moodiness enhances everything he plays and turns every tune into a gripping last stand. “People Get Ready” holds onto the hope that Curtis Mayfield intended. Each tune here is available in both audio and video form.

Customer Reviews

The Master

An unexpected new Jeff Beck album is always a welcome thing. That this is live, in front of an audience, is an even better thing. The sounds that Jeff can coax out of his Fender Strat are otherworldly and nowhere is that more obvious than in a live setting. One of the great things about this new release, and it may also be the reason for its release, is that several songs from Beck's latest studio album, Emotion and Commotion, are represented here.

From Corpus Christi Carol to Hammerhead to the Beatles song, A Day In The Life and lastly, the lovely and amazing Nessun Dorma, the E&C selections are nice additions and I suspect this album may find its way next to the Live At Ronnie Scott's disc in my collection. If you know Jeff Beck then there's really nothing I can say... for you already know how special he is as a guitarist. If you are new to Jeff Beck, do yourself a favor and give him a listen to. I guarantee you that he will mesmerize you and blow you away.

Not as good as I wanted but...

It's pretty good. Not as good as Ronnie Scotts, but still good. Some problems is that hammer heads into isn't as good and this version of a day in the life isn't as good(but its still good). The highlights are the last two songs. I love the Les Paul tribute and the INSTRUMENTAL version of people get ready is really good as well. Over all this gets a solid 4/5.

new live Jeff Beck!

I haven't even listened to one track yet, but having seen the show at the Fillmore in Detroit, all I can say is thanks for releasing this! Jeff Beck is alone in the pantheon of so called greats - he blows every other electric guitarist into the weeds!

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...
