Editorial Reviews

Beck's solos and Rod's vocals got even more powerful on their second straight #15 LP, though band turmoil led Stewart and Wood to join Faces soon after this blues-rock masterpiece came out. Early versions of All Shook Up and Jailhouse Rock and other bonus cuts join Spanish Boots; The Hangman's Knee , and the rest of this 1969 rocker.

By M. Allen Greenbaum HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on February 28, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Beck-Ola has a very different sound than "Truth," the Jeff Beck Group's classic first album. On "BEck-Ola" the musicians sound more self-assured, the playing more uniformly aggressive. OF course, you expect that from Jeff Beck, who has the angriest sounding guitar in all rock, but Ron Woods (bass), Nicki Hopkins (keyboards), and the new percussionist play less tentaively, all of them have a certain cocky flair. Wood and Hopkis take more extended, showy solos: Beck is not the only flash this time around.

THe album is also more prototypically hard rock (closer to metal, though neither Truth or this album are its progenitors, as some journalists/publicists would like you to believe). The sound of each soloist is more foregrounded, though not nearly to the same extenet as Led Zep. This is still blue-based interplay, but there's more bravado here, and the engineering favors the upfront sound of each soloist.

While Stewat isn't nearly as playful as he was on "Truth," he and his mates have a gloriously good time on the over-the-top "Jailhouse Rock," and his slurring butchery of some the words on "Spanish Boots" is especially delightful. To some extent, however, this highlights what's missing from the album, the sort of playful, making it look easier than it is, more spontaneous feeling of Truth. You can almost feel them pushing hard on this album, and while this plays well on most songs, there's a kind of forced feeling to "The Hangman's Knee" and (I hate to say it, because it was an early fave song of mine), the long power song, Rice Pudding.

To better understand Jeff Beck's Music, you must better understand Jeff, first. Considered by many to be the best Rock guitarist of all time, he didn't always receive the recognition that he thought that he deserved. Having to step in as a replacement guitarist for Eric Clapton when he joined the Yardbirds may have fanned the flames in the beginning. And after pioneering in Distortion, Feedback, and Fuzz Tone, he dropped out and formed his own band, but before the TRUTH album was released, Jimi Hendrix came to town and stole some of Jeff's thunder, doing exactly the same things Jeff was doing on stage years earlier with the Yardbirds. If that wasn't bad enough, Jeff had a fit when he heard those early Led Zeppelin records. His good pal, Jimmy Page, stole alot of his ideas and drove them into the ground! (By the way, whatever happened to "Pagey"?) So Jeff really had an ATTITUDE by the time BECK-OLA was recorded. There's alot of Thunder and Lightning on this record! Perhaps those Zeppelin Lps helped steer Jeff in this direction after all, because it was a complete departure from the TRUTH album. BECK-OLA has a Live feel to it, and alot of noise, too. There was alot of tension within this group at the time, getting ready to explode, and it did. Too Bad.

Look, I've reviewed this incendiary slab of raw power at least twice for amazon (the US edition from 2000 and the UK EMI from 2004 on which this version is based), and to keep it short and simple: Jeff Beck, Ron Wood, Rod Stewart, Nicky Hopkins, and Tony Newman's 1969 classic gets better with age, presages skronk, grunge, hard rock and "metal" (without the illusion of control), and injects funk into its punk: the Stooges' "Funhouse" meets Led Zep circa disc one of "Pyisical Graffiti"... The unparalleled, explosive, apocalyptic intensity of the former crossed with Zep's musicianship (but utterly lacking Page's innate sense of calculation, which is partly why the JBG aren't "classic rock" radio staples). 1968's "Truth" was of course the template for the Zep debut, but this is something altogether wilder, crazier, a go for broke recording that seems to end violently, suddenly (the tape splice at the end of 'Rice Pudding' famously appropriated by the Beatles on "Abbey Road"). Crank this loud enough, pedal to the floor (Beck's band fits the idea of the guitarist's passion for racing souped up cars) and you might imagine that splice is an inevitable power outtage.

Ok, more in the other "Beck-Ola" reviews, but here's the rub: I'd swear this is cut from a different master from that 2004 (UK) EMI edition, which features the very same bonus tracks. There's a smokey haze in here, a subtle air of containment that gets in the way - this Legacy edition smolders, but it lacks the fire of the EMI, that reaches right out and scorches you through your speakers.(The bonus cuts, all worthwhile, interestingly sound the same - hence my feeling that the UK and US 'original masters' are different. Other indications include the fact that the timings vary by a few seconds on at least a couple songs).

If there is anyone who doubts Jeff Beck deserves a seat at the table with Hendrix and Clapton in the pantheon of rock-guitar deities, s/he should get a grip on this CD right quick - after putting on asbestos gloves. From his pile-driving days with the Yardbirds through the two Jeff Beck Group efforts, (this is the second), and various collaborations afterwards, Beck has been a fearless innovator, axe murderer, and prototypical rock and roll monster. Much has been made of the Yardbird guitar troika - Clapton, Beck, Page - and while it makes an interesting rock footnote, Beck was responsible for their highest highs, the Clapton/Page contributions were far less interesting. Beck was as much of a pioneer as he was technically overpowering.

The first Jeff Beck Group album, Truth, is an absolute essential. Rod Stewart's vocals suit the material perfectly, Nicky Hopkins on piano is ideal, Ron Wood holds down the bass, and Mick Waller kicks skins. Songs like Blues De Luxe and I Ain't Superstitious pretty much define the Brit-blues-band sound. (Beck-Ola has one song that would have fit there - a bonus track - Sweet Little Angel.) However, for the most part, Beck-Ola is an entirely different animal, a wild studio jam made in an atmosphere of rage. Wood, Waller, and Stewart were getting ready to break up TJBG by jumping ship to form Faces. Worse still, the least worthy guitarist to play with the Yardbirds, Jimmy Page, was stealing Beck's thunder as their mutual management helped assemble an absolutely awful group destined to pollute the airwaves for years under the name Led Zeppelin. Beck was furious, and you can hear it in the music.

Two Elvis hits, All Shook Up and Jailhouse Rock, are amped-up and slapped around so rudely as to be unrecognizable; both are highlights.
