Jeff Beck discusses his new album with Alice Cooper

Biography

Jeff Beck isn’t your typical guitar legend. His goal, in fact, is to make you forget that he plays guitar.

“I don’t understand why some people will only accept a guitar if it has an instantly recognizable guitar sound,” says Beck. “Finding ways to use the same guitar people have been using for 50 years to make sounds that no one has heard before is truly ... Read more in Amazon's Jeff Beck Store

Customer Reviews

The tunes are spotty - some great, some not so great - but the over-all feel is incredible.

I just love this album, and I've heard many. "Jody" is my favorite cut, then "I've been used".
Joseph Rzeczycki
The eclectic chemistry of this band creates a sound that is essentially a compelling rock genre of it's own.

ROUGH AND READY announced the return of Jeff Beck after a near-fatal car accident, and who could've thought of a better way to do it? Mixing Memphis funk with heavy metal, he adds soulful vocals from Bob Tench, who is as unique in his own way as Rod Stewart was in his. This album is a must have for both R&B AND metal fans.

I originally bought this in 8-track format, then LP, cassette and now CD...it is a classic, where every song on the album is excellent. "Jody" and "Situation" are my favorites and I can't believe they didn't get included in the box set...in fact none of the album did!!

Rough and Ready is indeed not only an "album" rather than a group of songs, but also a feeling, a feeling that starts with the very first song..... you'll likely soon realize it is the feeling you want .... a true music lover knows the unique quality of that feeling and how uplifting it can be.....I am here to suggest that this feeling is likely to be a constant while listening to this album, a soaring, epic expression of musical genius. This will be especially so once you get to know it as I do. Other than Sgt. Pepper, I don't know of any album that I listened to so frequently for so long - or with such relish! A teenager when I feel in love with Rough & Ready and the one of a kind intelligence of Jeff Beck as a guitarist ..... it has proven to well withstand the test of time - I may love it even more today! The eclectic chemistry of this band creates a sound that is essentially a compelling rock genre of it's own. I was between college and high school while I was quite addicted to listening to this album,at maximum volume, practically every day (for longer than I might care to admit) and on headphones if at all possible, but always LOUD.....because this album has punch, crunch, nuance and beauty that simply sounds better louder. Cozy Powell drove the tight rhythm section which Beck danced on and with - all like they had always been together. Though I agree that Bob Tench's singing doesn't quite electrify you (like Powell, Beck and Middleton do) but he was actually the perfect unexpected touch making this a blend of music that is, as I said, almost a genre of it's own.....one that is very easy to enjoy with most any other lover!Read more ›

This is a fine early 70's effort from the second (or maybe third) incarnation of Jeff Beck and his merry sidemen, and has aged surprisingly well. One can sense Beck's slight turn toward the jazz leanings that would soon become his forte,although he is still hanging on to his rock/blues roots on this set. There is some interesting diversity on "Rough & Ready", everything from the heavy riff rock of "Train Train", the jazz-rock leanings on "Situation" and "Got The Feeling", to the beautiful and ethereal "Max's Tune".The album features fine drumming from the late Cozy Powell and outstanding playing overall from the musicians involved. I hope this CD is next in line for a proper remastering, a la "Truth" & "Beck-Ola" (July 2000 reissue versions)--it sorely needs it!

Somewhere after this album, Jeff realized that he would no longer need the obstructions of vocalists, nor would he need to pursue "that Motown sound" ever again. Yes, the vocals and the crunchy funk is still here, but you can detect a coolness and clarification beginning here, much thanks to Max Middleton's contributions. Fusion is around the corner.
One track that stands above all the rest is the haunting instrumental "Max's Tune", originally titled "Raines Park Blues". It is a wet, rainy gray afternoon of a suite that is certainly one of the greatest Jeff Beck moments ever recorded.
It is worth the album all by itself.

This album show Jeff's migration from Rock to Jazz Rock/Fusion. Max Middleton works so beautifully with Jeff. Too bad Jeff let him go after Wired. You can hear Jeff's influence by Jan Hammer in the song "New Ways/Train Train". Word is Jeff changed his direction when he heard Jan on John Ambercrombie's "Timeless" album, specifically the cut "Red and Orange". Give it a listen and have bandaids ready for your ears. Jeff Beck...there is no substitute!
