This IMPORT collection on Castle/Sanctuary is essential for Jeff Beck fanatics, but the average fan will probably prefer Rhino's "The Yardbirds Ultimate!" compilation. Beck played on sessions before, during, and after he was in the Yardbirds, including Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages, The Smoke, John's Children, and Nightshift. Although there are a few really horrible tracks (Stormy Monday for example), the rarities more than make up for them. The Jeff Beck Group backs up Donovan on two decent tracks from "Barabajagal", and and also performs on three strange songs with the GTOs from their "Permanent Damage" album. In case you didn't know, the GTO's were very well-known groupies discovered and recorded by Frank Zappa on his Bizarre Label. "And the Sun Will Shine", written by the Bee Gees, is tearfully sung by former Manfred Man singer Paul Jones, with Paul McCartney on drums and Paul Samwell Smith on bass guitar. If you don't already have "Beck's Bolero" produced by Jimmy Page, I recommend buying it for that reason alone.

Best known for his pioneering work with the Yardbirds, Jeff Beck was one of the iconic faces of the swinging sixties, as exemplified in the film Blow Up, where the band perform a thinly disguised version of Train Kept-A Rollin'. He was exploring with feedback on homemade amps as early as 1960, and was a student of blues, rock and roll and country artists like Buddy Guy, Earl Hooker, Johnny Burnette and James Burton; and he played live with a variety of bands in the early sixties. Yet his recordings have not been poured over and anthologized as fellow guitar gods Clapton and Page have been, a circumstance which Shapes Of Things - 60s Groups And Sessions attempts to put right. This seems to be one of the first to contextualize his earlier and later sixties work with his two years in the Yardbirds.

As one would expect, sonically adventurous key singles like Heart Full Of Soul (his debut single with the Yardbirds), Still I'm Sad/Evil Hearted You and the majestic Shapes Of Things are included, as is his solo pop single Hi Ho Silver Lining, a rare vocal outing which introduced him to a new vast audience via Top Of The Pops and the like. Beck's Bolero, recorded while he was in the Yardbirds, is also featured. A slightly different mix of this instrumental was on the B-side of Hi Ho Silver Lining. It has Beck in July 1966 grouped with present and future luminaries Jimmy Page, Nicky Hopkins, John Paul Jones and Keith Moon.

The Jeff Beck Group, the band he formed in 1968, is represented by Rock My Plimsoul (a rewrite of Rock Me Baby featuring Rod Stewart), from the Truth album (not the single version as stated).
