Some of the songs work better than others; the original ‘Heart full of Soul’ and ‘For your Love’ for instance are never going to be bettered while ‘Shapes of Things’ and ‘Morning Dew’ both of which stick to the Rod Stewart versions fare much better, and the Buddy Guy and Billy Gibbons tracks are superlative. Gibbons, Jan Hammer, Beth Hart, Jimmy Hall and Buddy Guy and concluded with a group encore of "Purple Rain" in honor of Prince. In the summer of 2016, Jeff Beck celebrated 50 years of his musical career with a special concert at the famous Hollywood Bowl. Of course, these were Jeff Beck‘s followers, many of whom had seen him live throughout the various phases of his classic rock career, from the Yardbirds to the days of the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart, out on the Jan Hammer Highway and into the future with Beck’s 2016 album, Loud Hailer.

Together with a few chosen guests and his regular band of the moment he reminds us of the many musical periods he has played through in his career. He just comes at it from a different angle, more interested in experimenting with sounds than merely playing a guitar well. Beck’s collaboration with the keyboardist was the cornerstone of his most creative period, and with this onstage reunion (“I am so thrilled to have the great Jan Hammer on keyboards,” Beck introduced), the faithful were satiated.

It was Great to see my Friend again, still playing and experimenting, and Collaborating, sharing his night with us. I have 4 other people's versions of 'I'd Rather Go Blind' in my collection, all of them good, but Beth can trawl those emotions up from deep inside herself and slap you in the face with them that bit better. Founding Editor of Guitar World magazine and Creative Consultant to the Jimi Hendrix Foundation, Noe Gold has worked for Crawdaddy and The Hollywood Reporter, The Village Voice and the New York Daily News. Not as good as 'Live at Ronnie Scott's' (because it doesn't have Imogen Heap's rendition of 'Rolling and Tumbling) but nonetheless awe-inspiring.

At one point during their performance of “Blue Wind,” Beck pointed playfully toward Hammer, who took the cue and revved up the synth. This album is a bit different from his previous live stuff in that he revisits not just his solo back catalogue but the stuff he did with The Yardbirds, and the Jeff Beck group featuring Rod Stewart.Dipping into his career all the way back to The Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart through to more recent times. Over Under Sideways Down” had the same youthful energy as it did when Beck and the lads were humping their equipment around England in a van with “Yardbirds” painted on the side of it.
