News of the week, covering everything from Jeff Beck to Los Lobos
When Jeff Beck takes the stage for his induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this month, he will be making his third appearance on that stage.
The Jeff Beck Group’s 1968 debut album “Truth” was a model for the hard-rock albums that followed it for the next five years.
The tours which followed through the mid-1970s did more than feed Beck’s ego, however.
They also pinpointed a musical direction he had never seriously considered, one in which the instrumentation was the star, and the instrumentalists were simply the vehicles which carried it to the stage. And once he was joined by Dutch percussion genius Jan Hammer, early into the Wired sessions, suddenly the sky was the limit.
Even today, a decade after its release, Who Else! is an astonishingly contemporary-sounding record, the kind of disc that, had it come spinning out at us from among the wunderkind godheads of modern techno (whoever they may be in these dark and faceless days), would be held up as one of the sonic achievements of the age.
