Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story

Read "Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jeff Beck Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story Eagle Vision 2018 Unlike its decidedly idiosyncratic subject, Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story is a wholly conventional piece of video work focusing almost exclusively on the musical progression of the British guitar hero. It may be intended less for devoted fans than those more casual musiclovers who've had their curiosity piqued about what of the man's done and how he's done it ...

The two CD 'Deluxe Edition' of Jeff Beck Performing This Week Live at Ronnie Scott's is a title to be treasured even though it doesn't contain any unreleased content from the previously issued CD and DVD/Blu-Ray pieces.

Read "Jeff Beck: Live +" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jeff Beck Live+ is a collection of fourteen tracks recorded in concert during August of 2014 with a pair of new originals from recent studio sessions. It effectively whets the appetite for the new studio record reportedly in the works for some months now even as it stands as a fitting companion piece to the DVD Live in Tokyo (Eagle Vision, 2014). Beck's is a perfectly pragmatic approach to to reinvent the panoply of styles he's traversed since ...
