Editorial Reviews

A stomping rhythm section, a wailing singer, a searing lead guitarist-this 1968 LP (#15 in the U.S.) came out of nowhere and introduced the world to Rod Stewart, Ron Wood, Jeff Beck and heavy metal. Shapes of Things; You Shook Me; I Ain't Superstitious; Beck's Bolero , and the rest join eight bonus stereo mixes, alternate takes and songs!

Jeff Beck's debut solo album has never sounded better in this mid-price expanded/remaster.As you know,this album was the first full-length recording of Rod Stewart.The group was a supergroup;guitarist Jeff Beck,vocalist Rod Stewart,bassist Ron Wood,Keyboardist Nicky Hopkins and drummer Micky Waller(who later played on some of Rod's best solo albums).For this release,EMI gives you all the expected bonus tracks and then some.You get previously unreleased outtake versions of "Blues DeLuxe" & "You Shook Me"(both remixed from the original multitracks),the original UK mono single version of "Beck's Bolero"(yes,as we're aware,there's no stereo mix of this track,which was recorded in 1966,shortly after Jeff's previous band The Yardbirds had completed their "Roger The Engineer" album,but the Uk single version has a backwards guitar coda which was edited off all album and previous CD releases of the song).Incidentally,"Beck's Bolero" was recorded with Keith Moon,John Paul Jones,Jimmy Page & Nicky Hopkins.Also,you get first-time-in stereo 2005 remixes of "I've Been Drinking","Hi Ho Silver Lining" & "Rock My Plimsoul"(the first version;the single take with Aynsley Dunbar on drums).The new remix of "I've Been Drinking" corrects a problem present on the original mono mix which caused a rejected,alternate lyric Rod Stewart vocal to leak through in the part of the song after the guitar solo.The unwanted vocal has now been 95% squelched.Read more ›

After leaving the Yardbirds in late-1966, Jeff Beck hooked up with popmeister Mickie Most (Herman's Hermits, Donovan) but had little luck with the UK singles chart. By 1968, Beck enlisted vocalist Rod Stewart, bass player Ron Wood, and drummer Mickey Waller. Their debut Truth would would be the most consistently satisfying album of Beck's career.
The album kicks off with a reworking of the 1966 Yardbird's hit "Shapes of Things" and from there presents a string of blues-based songs that would become the framework for heavy metal in general and Led Zeppelin in particular. The only serious misstep is the inclussion of "Old Man River" from the 1951 musical Show Boat. It may help show us Stewart's range as a vocalist, but it's not much of a showcase for Beck's virtuosity as a guitarslinger. The only other out-of-character tune is Beck's solo rendition of the traditional "Greensleeves." But as he remarks in the liner notes, "Aye that's a lovely 'toon'," and his acoustic reading is a reflective counterpoint to most of the rest of the material contained on the album.
Highlights include "You Shook Me," "Rock My Plimsoul" and the guitar workout "Beck's Bolero," but the standout track is "I Ain't Superstitious."
As a bandleader, Beck could be temperamental and his bands tended to not last for more than one or two albums. [The follow-up "Beck-Ola" featured a diferent drummer plus the addition of keyboardist Nicky Hopkins and would be that group's last.] Beck's post-Sixties work always showed flashes of brilliance and as such I would highly recommend the 3-CD Beckology as a terrific overview, but Truth belongs in any serious music collector's library. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I highly recommend this version with the extra tracks. The sound is excellent. I hear a lot more than on the Remastered Epic version. And I really like the bonus cuts. I think I prefer the alternate versions than the ones used for the record, especially Blues DeLuxe. The definitive version!! A must have for your collection.

In the era of Hendrix, Cream, and Michael Bloomfield, Jeff Beck's first release was a landmark album. Truth (and the superb follow-up of Beck-Ola) showcased Jeff's raw & intense playing and clearly his best Blues ever. Jeff's discovery of then-unknown Rod Stewart was providencial as his voice was an amazing compliment to Jeff's style; it was totally unique and ideally suited for the Blues. (Too bad he abandoned this direction and instead opted for the 'Do you think I'm sexy/Hot Legs' rubbish). Truth contains 'Blues Deluxe' which seems to have been plagiarized from the Blues classic 'Gambler's Blues,' but it stands on its own nonetheless. Although in the same genre as Led Zeppelin's early releases, Truth pre-dates Zep I by six months. Interesting that both include the great Blues track 'You Shook Me.' The Jeff Beck Group obviously never attained the same commercial success as Zeppelin which was painfully ironic and likely caused some resentment since Jeff dropped out of the Yardbirds and Jimmy Page continued on with them. (For nostalgic's sake, check out the 1966 film Blowup which includes a scene near the end with the Yardbirds w/Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck performing 'Stroll On,' until Jeff smashes his guitar à la The Who. You can see it on Youtube).
