About this deal

The tribute to Prince with 'Purple Rain' is easily up there with Prince's own remarkable guitar prowess, so honours his memory well. 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.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. My favourite songs from this set are the ones featuring Steve Tyler, Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons and Beth Hart. 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). And I went to alot of Allman Brothers, Lynard Skynard, Blues, Rock, Quadrofonic, and Progressive Rock ” Yes”, “Jethro Tull” with his Flute, and Frank Zappa.Some of the songs work better than others; the original ‘Heart full of Soul’ and ‘For your Love’ for instance are never going to be bettered while ‘Shapes of Things’ and ‘Morning Dew’ both of which stick to the Rod Stewart versions fare much better, and the Buddy Guy and Billy Gibbons tracks are superlative. He experimented with me, He gave me a history lesson on his career with the Yardbirds, these long bus rides he took with them, on Jimmy Page, dragging around his guitar on the ground. 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. 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. 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.

He just comes at it from a different angle, more interested in experimenting with sounds than merely playing a guitar well. Yes, Page may have more riffs and Clapton may, only may, rival BB in his solos but only Beck has moved on.Read all In the summer of 2016, Jeff Beck celebrated 50 years of his musical career with a special concert at the famous Hollywood Bowl. Dipping into his career all the way back to The Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart through to more recent times. Then it was off to the races, with Beck leading his ensemble through a rapid-fire half-dozen Yardbirds and Jeff Beck Group rockers.
