I really love this album and would say this is my favourite JB album Good live recording and the way the bass and drums lock-in is very good. Also, hear how Tal underlines the guitar melody line with her bass playing on the Beatles cover; A Day in the Life. Very clever
Music is where I find my solace Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two. – Fredric Chopin
A real mix and an album appreciated by non hard core JB fans.
Would have preferred longer than just over 40 minutes
Still not sure about him doing Over the Rainbow Not that keen on I Put a Spell on You Serene is wonderful Nessun Dorma was certainly a surprise. Who knew there was an electric guitar version that could be this good
Very well made album, recommended

I have tried really hard guys, having listened to a variety of Jeff's music recently to try and 'get it' but I just don't.
For me, it is all showboating, no real tunes. There is the odd good song, but I would struggle to listen to the majority of his output. It reminds me a bit of Steve Vai in the way, but his music is more tuneful and musical to me.

I discovered that Jeff Beck is perfect for mowing the lawn. In went the E10s with the phone providing Spotify. It took all of Loud Hailer and You Had It Coming to mow it, but at least I could lose myself for some of it.
