In the late 60s, Yardbirds alumnus Jeff Beck formed The Jeff Beck Group. Here's the remarkable story of the making Of Truth, their debut album. The album was a miracle of fury and berserk beauty, a testament to the jaw-dropping chops of a 24- year old guitarist who, over the course of 10 tracks and around 40 minutes, ran the gamut from electric blues and modified R&B to psychedelically influenced rock, classical, and even a little heavy-metal instrumentalism. With a singer in tow, Beck then set out to look for a bass player. Ronnie Wood continues the story: I knew Jeff, but I’d never had a chance to go and sit through a whole show. I’d just heard little bits of him when he used to play with a band called The Tridents.
He rose to fame in the early 1990s with his lo-fi, sonically experimental style, and he became well known for creating musical collages of a wide range of styles. His later recordings encompass folk, funk, soul, hip hop, alternative rock, country and psychedelia. He has released 12 studio albums, as well as several non-album singles and a book of sheet music. Born in Los Angeles in 1970, Beck discovered hip hop and folk music in his teens and began to perform locally at coffeehouses and clubs. He moved to New York City in 1989 and became involved in the city's small but intense anti-folk.
1972's Jeff Beck Group shows that Beck was already moving beyond his soul-rock hybrid and sowing the seeds for his exceptional mid-'70s jazz/rock fusion work. Jeff Beck Group also served as a precursor to Beck's next project, the blues-soul-rock trio Beck, Bogart & Appice. Produced by Booker T. & the .
Jeff Beck Group was finished in January and released in early May 1972 in the . it was held over until June in the . Soon referred to as the Orange Album because of the picture of the fruit at the top of the cover, the LP was welcomed by fans (it reached No. 16), but mostly panned by critics. They found the material uninspired, Tench's vocals lacking and the production boring – though most still praised Beck's guitar work. Perhaps Beck agreed with that assessment. On July 24, not even three months after the album's . release, the guitarist disbanded the group.
Jeff Beck Group is a Jeff Beck showcase and one of the finest pieces of blues/rock in the history of the genre. Jeff Beck's truly inspired and creative playing is extraordinarily fluid and plain genius in a class of the top echelon of guitarists. The mystery (and tragedy) of the recent Beck is his election to showcase his brilliantly idiosyncratic instrumental style in the context of a band upon which he himself has imposed severe stylistic restrictions. This album, and the group in general, is usually terrific when Beck's guitar-playing is in the spotlight. When either Bob Tench's vocals or Max Middleton's usually pleasant but seldom arresting and rated jazz piano are basking therein, Jeff Beck Group's music is mostly just dull - commonplace and predictable.
The original Jeff Beck Group, including vocalist Rod Stewart, bassist Ronnie Wood, drummer Mick Waller and, in later stages, pianist extraordinaire Nicky Hopkins, might've established a breakthrough at their appearance at the Woodstock Festival in 1969 had they played the confirm gig. But Beck dissolved the band in a tempestuous fit (or so the story goes), soon after to suffer serious injuries in a car crash that left him inactive until the assembly of a new Jeff Beck Group in 1970
