    I was never a big Beck fan despite much trying. I heard this earlier, and it's the first Beck album I can genuinely say that I really love.

    I can hear a TON of Jimmy Page licks in there too - Jimmy was never shy about saying JB was a huge influence, but I never really heard it until now.

    Micky Waller, Ronnie Wood on Bass, Rod Stewart singing... Les Paul, Marshall. Wow.

    He walked off a lot back in the day. I also got skunked on his tour in '84 or '85(?). Saw him twice after that though.

    IMHO, Jeff can do no wrong. I even liked his electro stuff back when he went through that phase.
    Always innovating, always improving himself, NEVER stagnant.

    Only seen him twice though. Bummer.

    Edit:Whoops! I almost forgot about his last album 'Loud Hailer'
    Great playing on his part, but overall I didn't really care much for it TBH.

    I saw beck for the first time with Jan Hammer on keys , Blue Wind tour , I was gob smacked and to this day I have nothing but total respect for his ability to kick ass on the guitar, more technique and individual style that one body should posses

    and as for stewart - gasoline alley is the best album he ever did and still one of my favorites

    thanks for posting

    I never saw this version of the Jeff Beck group (I was only 14, so couldn't drive yet, and I could only go to shows with my sister or my older fiends who had their liscenses), but I did see the Rough and Ready version with Bob Tench, Max Middleton, Clive Chaman and Cozy Powell twice, on the Rough and Ready and then on the Orange album tours, with Tim Bogart and Carmine Appice, with Jan Hammer, and with Terry Bozzio on the tour with SRV, and they were all awesome, but the Rough and Ready show stands as one of the best concerts I've ever been to. This is coming from someone who saw most of the great 60s and 70s bands in their prime, so that's saying a lot. I'll never forget that weekend at Winterland, Traffic on the Low Spark tour on Friday and Saturday nights, and Jeff on Sunday night. We (my sister and our friends) went all three nights.

    We saw that lineup at The Boston Tea Party and/or The Ark. Jeff was on fire, as usual but
    Rod the Mod seemed kind of shy and even went behind the wall of amps a few times but sang well.

    Absolutely.

    Yep, it's a great testament to how influential Jeff was on Page. LZ was basically Jimmy's take on re-creating the JB group.

    And the tone, oh the tone....... :cool:

    If you haven't seen the Ronnie Scott footage, here's a taster. I'd have given an organ to be sitting at the front table while this was going on:

    If I remember correctly, Ten Years After and The Moody Blues were on the same bill.

    I saw Beck and company on that '68 tour in Dania Beach, Miami, Fl. I had a hole roll of photos from the side of the stage that I can't find, but do have these two!

    You do understand you were hearing Jeff Beck licks and style that Jimi Page coped. Jeff Beck NEVER did anything Jimi Page would do, unless he wanted to copy himself.
