About this deal

As the evening progressed he was joined by many of the great musicians he has collaborated with over the years including Billy F. This album covers most of Jeff's musical career but I would have liked something from his 'Jeff Beck Group' days of the early 1970's ( when Max Middleton was his keyboard player and Cozy Powell was on drums). Founding Editor of Guitar World magazine and Creative Consultant to the Jimi Hendrix Foundation, Noe Gold has worked for Crawdaddy and The Hollywood Reporter, The Village Voice and the New York Daily News. The show climaxed with the guests all joining forces for an exhilarating encore performance of "Purple Rain" in tribute to Prince, who had passed away a couple of months before the concert. Beck’s collaboration with the keyboardist was the cornerstone of his most creative period, and with this onstage reunion (“I am so thrilled to have the great Jan Hammer on keyboards,” Beck introduced), the faithful were satiated.

For more than forty years, I've dipped into Jeff Beck's career without his music really connecting with me. He’s also hugely respected by his peers, and is clearly and deeply committed to playing what he wants to play rather than chasing new markets. A musician of principle no less, and a true guitar legend who lets his Stratocaster do the talking - there’s no dad dancing or other embarrassing attempts to try to convince us he’s a 18 year old rebel.Beck set the stage ablaze with incredible live versions of "For Your Love", "Beck's Bolero", "Cause We've Ended As Lovers", "Big Block", "Over Under Sideways Down", "A Day In The Life", "Blue Wind", and more. Les invités le sont tout autant, Buddy Guy, Jan Hammer ou Billy Gibbons se montrent à la hauteur du maitre.

Gibbons, Jan Hammer, Beth Hart, Jimmy Hall and Buddy Guy and concluded with a group encore of "Purple Rain" in honor of Prince. Together with a few chosen guests and his regular band of the moment he reminds us of the many musical periods he has played through in his career.The August 10, 2016 concert was billed as a career retrospective (“50 Years of Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Special Guests”) and for almost three hours, if you count Guy’s 45-minute cooker of an opening set, the potentially jaded Hollywood Bowl crowd was treated to a jaw-dropping display of deep blues, hot licks and dive-bombing Stratocaster forays into the ionosphere of rock. Un must absolu pour tout amateur de guitare, après son récent décès, de quoi s'apercevoir qu'il est sans aucun doute, sur la durée de son oeuvre, le plus grand guitariste de toute l'histoire du rock. Yes, since I latched onto his unique brilliance when he joined The Yardbirds in fact and I realised that his playing was more inventive than Hank Marvin's ( the British guitar hero that all others efforts were measured up against at the time). The setlist reached back to his first recordings with The Yardbirds in 1966 and came right up to date with tracks from his most recent album "Loud Hailer.
