In 1971 He moved to Los Angeles, California to finish his schooling where he became an inner city pastor promoting and hosting gospel concerts. It is a begrudgingly interesting effort even if many listeners including Jeff himself would rather forget it. The material itself may not be top-notch but Spanish Boots contains a great riff and spectacular work by Beck, while Plynth (Water Down the Drain), The Hangman's Knee and Rice Pudding once again make it possible to draw comparisons with Zeppelin, especially seeing how, despite the fact that Beck and Stewart are better instrumentalists than Page and Plant, the scales clearly fall on the side of Zeppelin because the songs are so much better. Even “Nessum Dorma”‘s main movement is here, and Jeff Beck matches its profound emotional load easily. Beck also has the rare honor of being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice - first as a member of The Yardbirds in 1992, then as a solo artist in 2009.

Having a Rave Up was released in November 1965 in the US and was not an album as such, but a strange compilation of singles, since the time Beck had joined the group in March of that year. On the opening "You Know What I Mean," Beck's stinging, blues-based soloing is full of imaginative shapes and daring leaps.At the risk of alienating those loyal fans who cry out for the heavier Jeff Beck of 1969, Jeff gives them exactly that except not in the way they were hoping. will find much to relish on 'You Had It Coming', but the truth is that there is nothing entirely new here; from the opener "Earthquake", it is clear that listeners will be treated to another noisy and new age introspective. Beck Bogert and Appice is the only studio album of the trio composed of drummer Carmine Appice and bass guitarist Tim Bogert, both formerly with “Vanilla Fudge” and “Cactus” with Jeff Beck on lead guitar. Blow by Blow did not enter the Gaon Album Chart, but it peaked at number 30 on the component overseas album chart in 2010. But if Rod Stewart was so shy that his first gigs were spent hiding behind speakers, he showed no such intimidation in the studio.

on our list of the Top 10 Jeff Beck Songs), Beck's 1975 album also included a pair of cuts penned by Stevie Wonder. On What God Wants, Beck delivers blistering mutant blues fireworks, chiming reveries and cosmos-touching solos that almost single-handedly elevated the three-part suite to the level of Floyd at their peak. Other players might have been tempted to fill in the gaps here just because they could, but Beck’s approach was both restrained and magical, with not a note wasted. Grease Monkey" and "Hot Rod Honeymoon" are great tunes and the guitar continues to ride the wave above the fuzzy layers and dirty drum sounds, but the context of their message make them seem like they are crying out for a more traditional blues rock approach. Elsewhere, Jeff Beck taught us he was the best blues player, and was taking his noise making and other sounds to places only Hendrix was visiting.Apart from a sizzling instrumental version of "High Heeled Sneakers," less devoted listeners will find 'Frankie's House' as captivating as most other incidental film music. The guitar sound on Over Under Sideways Down’s rave-up is still impossible to pin down: part snake charmers’ pungi, part kazoo – how *did* he do that? Then there's the song itself, a three-minute, three-part instrumental based on Ravel's classical-music piece that's loaded with guitar effects: slides, dual solos, distortion and a hyper-drive ending that barely catches its breath before swinging back to its original inspiration.

S. Bonds and Trombone Shorty to the show, and a showdown show ender with Brian Setzer as they play a furious version of Eddie Cochran’s “Twenty Flight Rock”. Hot House of Omagararshid is further proof that this band was not afraid to explore new sounds, again the star is Beck; with a solo full of distortion and originality, Jeff's Boogie, a plagiarism of Chuck Berry 's Chuck's boogie, is an instrumental vehicle for the band's superstar.The album contained a large assortment of musicians that included Jan Hammer and Tony Hymas who either wrote or co-wrote all but two songs on the album. On 1975’s Blow By Blow and 1976’s Wired he cemented his reputation as a jazz fusionist; 1993’s Crazy Legs paid homage to Gene Vincent; 1999’s Who Else!
