Seriously, I couldn't name a Jeff Beck album. This calls for another Amazon Music session. I'll be back in a couple of days.

I was never a big JB fan but I'll vote for Truth.

Truth was an album that was played in my circle of friends during my high school days.

Blow By Blow and Guitar shop were good fusion efforts. I prefered the Truth album because of the lineup and the variety of musical arrangents on the album. All three are worth a listen.

Neither can I. He's one of those guitar legends that everyone says you should worship but I couldn't tell you a damn thing he ever did besides that song with Rod Stewart back in the 80s.

The height of his fame was long before you were born.  Very long before you were born.  Your mother was probably still in grammar school.

Are there any more song like songs on that album or is it all more of this jammy eclectic instrumental vibe?

Still, for someone who is such a revered player, you would think I would at least know something from him.

Your mother never mentioned him?  His album Truth was a big deal back in the late sixties.

It's all instrumental, songs like that, ballads and other stuff. No vocal tunes.

But are many of the other instrumentals more melodically driven than the title track or is it all this very free form style?
