Seriously, I couldn't name a Jeff Beck album.

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.

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

He didn't really go the route of radio or chart success. Back in 68/69 his band actually beat Led Zeppelin to the punch on a lot of what they did, but in a more primitive ad less radio ready fashion. I get the feeling when he saw how well Zeppelin were doing with their heavy blues thing that he'd also developed he decided to leave well enough alone and went a less commercial direction. His album Blow By Blow from 1975 is really jazz fusion oriented, and really incredible for its time. He's kinda the first guy to get really renown among guitar players for being among the best of the best in the world of guitar but to not have that industry reverence cross over into a relevant amount of chart success. To me he's like the prototype for a Satriani or a Vai or any of your G3 guys.

Truth & Guitar Shop are 2 of my faves. I've also got a soft spot for Flash, which is about as commercial as he got.

Love Jeff

Rough and Ready / Blow by Blow / Wired / Guitar Shop / Who Else! / Emotion & Commotion all get my vote
probably a bunch of others too :D

I had tickets to see him last May... which then got delayed to this April... which is now delayed again until next March
Hopefully it will eventually happen :sarcastic:

If I was going to give someone a sample of Jeff Beck, this is the first song I'd pick.

I like some of the songs on Flash.

Jeff doesn't sing at all, but it's cool when he does take the lead vocals on 'Get Workin', and 'Night After Night'.

I also like the instrumental 'Escape' co-written with Jan Hammer.

Rod Stewart's vocals on 'People Get Ready' are great as well.

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

Not that I can recall. I'm sure my parents knew who he was since the 60s were their high school and college years. But I don't remember either one ever being a fan or talking about him in any way.

Going by the poll results, Truth, Wired, and Guitar Shop should be the albums that I check out then?
