When I first read that Jeff Beck had recorded a rockabilly album, it was straight to the store for the first copy on the shelf. I've had the album since it's release and it'still in my essential "12-pack" that's always in the car.
If you're a Jeff Beck fan, this is a side of Jeff Beck not found anywhere else: don't miss it. If you've never heard of Jeff Beck and just like rockabilly, don't miss it either.
I bought the album with no preconceptions, just a love for rockabilly and great guitar work. This album has both. This is NOT "Jeff Beck and some guys hidden on the side", it's Jeff Beck playing great guitar as part of a fine BAND. Big Town Playboys' Mike Sanchez provides great vocals on tunes that'll be stuck in your head for months. If you've got a convertible, slap this in on a sunny day, turn it up, and go for a drive...if tunes like "B-I-Bickey-Bi-Bo-BO-Go" don't make your day, strongly consider selling the car and shopping for a casket. You're already dead.

Danny Gatton, Les Paul on acid, Brian Setzer. Put them all together and this is what Jeff Beck sounds like on this album ...FREAKIN great!. To sum it all up Frank Zappa was asked about guitar players ..and who were his favorite players.
Frankie said ..." JEFF BECK IS MY FAVORITE GUITAR PLAYER ON THE PLANET" Well I say ...F-ing DITTO.

One of the most unique albums of Jeff Beck's career. I was never much of a fan of the rockabilly genre, but I can appreciate this disc and I listen to it often. Of course, a Jeff Beck album wouldn't be a Jeff Beck album without awe inspiring playing, and Jeff's solos here leave you speechless (not a surprise, eh?). A fitting tribute to Mr. Beck's hero, Cliff Gallup (another great guitarist).
For this album, Jeff hires the Big Town Playboys, and they seem to complete the rockabilly picture perfectly. This band has an especially great drummer and singer. "Baby Blue" especially shows this, and it also contains what is probably Jeff's best solo in the album. This disc has a bunch of material on it, and it was recorded perfectly. Jeff and the Boys have an astoundingly authentic sound, and that just adds to the pleasure of Crazy Legs. Anyone who needs that extra little Jeff Beck fix or an introduction to rockabilly should definately buy this album. Great music.

Having sampled much of Jeff Becks work in the past, I felt it was time to try something a little different from the man. This album finds Jeff in ground not really explored by his considerable talent before.

Jeff drew his inspiration for this album from Gene vincent and his band, The Blue Caps. The real focus for Jeff was to produce a fitting tribute to their guitarist Cliff Gallup who was an early inspiration to Jeff. He succeeds and then some. The 18 track album consists of 50's style rockabilly inspired music which kicks along at fairly breakneck pace from track 1 "Race with the Devil", which in line with Jeffs love of hot rod cars, encapsulates the feel of the times and you can almost hear the tyres screech!

A favorite track of mine is "Catman" which transports you into a far seedier place, with a hot sweaty 50s night club feel. Mike Sanchez's excellant controlled vocals pouring syrup into your ears one second and soaring into 'tear yor ears off' territory the next! All the time ably accompanied by the relentless rhythm section and Jeffs equally excellant 'cut throat razor' guitar riffs. Atmospheric, sums it up I think.

In summary, If you love the early sound of rock and roll, you'll love this, it's all there but with modern production whilst maintaining a very authentic 50s feel. You'll find yourself singing the tunes in the bath and wanting to slick your hair back! A fitting tribute to Cliff Gallup indeed.

Should you buy it? What are you waiting for?, you know you want to!!

He's got the sound and the style bang on. It's a perfect tribute from one great player to another. Cliff Gallup was a fabulous guitarist and it's cool to hear Jeff Beck playing those guitar licks so accurately. The Big Town Playboys are an excellent band as well.
If you like rockabilly you'll love this CD. If you don't, get it anyway and you soon will.

This is an album that you put on if you want to have fun, and also enjoy the greatest guitarist alive at the same time. Crazy Legs is a wonderful assortment of old rockabilly tunes that Jeff and the Big Town Playboys remake almost perfectly.
Danny Gatton once said that this album was the only rockabilly album that he trusted to be authentic. And I agree. 'Nuff said.

I got this release based on a great review, and it's now one of very favorite CDs of all time - desert island material, actually. And the BTP are from Britain! Unfortunately, Mike Sanchez no longer fronts the band. Anyone know where he is? LOVE his voice. I pray he's in another rockabilly band.
Everyone who loves rock-n-roll should own this CD.

This is Jeff Beck's tribute to Gene Vincent and to Cliff Gallup, the lead guitarist of the Blue caps during the best period of Gene Vincent's career.

Beck has cited Cliff Gallup as one of his major influences. On this album he reproduces Gallup's sound very accurately. He used the same Gretsch guitar, the same heavy picks and the same electronics that Gallup used on the first two Gene Vincent & the Blue caps albums from 1956-57. He also played Cliff Gallup's original leads and solos on all this material virtually note for note, so it sounds really close to Gallup's originals.

Despite his guitar talent, Cliff Gallup suffered from an almost debilitating shyness. He apparently left the Blue Caps at the peak of their North American success because his shyness made him reluctant to tour and appear on stage. He released a few solo albums in the early 1960s but they are long out of print and virtually unavailable. Gallup ended up running the school bus operation for a school district in the southeastern USA (I forget which state). He died in the late 1980s, with his guitar prowess largely forgotten, except by fans like Jeff Beck.

Beck is backed on this album by a British band called the Big Town Playboys. They do a very good job with the material but the lead vocalist is, unfortunately, no Gene Vincent.

Still, this is a really good album. I see there's a CD version available but it's priced at over $30!! This is a really good album but $30 for a CD is highway robbery in this day and age. Buy the mp3 download version of the entire album. There's not a weak track on it.

And if you like this album, buy the Gene Vincent originals. The first two albums by Gene Vincent & the Blue Caps, which featured Cliff Gallup on lead guitar, were two of the best albums released in the 1950s.
