Let's get this straight...

... once & for all - Jeff Beck is the greatest U.K. rock guitarist of the 1960s. Better than Clapton. Better than Page. This record is a good place to start.

Mister

Fiend

Totally agree with the review on Mister You're a Better Man Than I. Simply amazing. The Nazz Are Blue has a moment during the solo that still sends the shivers down my spine all these years later.

Early Jeff

This is a mixture of Yardbirds Jeff Beck cuts and some solo instrumentals but these are worthwhile gets for any J.B. fan or guitar freak. He was getting outrageous sounds out of his guitar and remember this was only 1965 or 1966 mostly - a true visionary.

Mister You're A Better Man Than I

cowboomie

Jeff Beck's lead section on Mister You're a Better Man Than I has to be one of the first real killer leads in rock. He would later go on to perfect the hanging extended "fattie" note on his cut Nazz Are Blue with the Yardbirds. That hanging fattie note sounds as if he tore it from the heart of the cosmos and planets died giving birth to it, dig out the Nazz Are Blue somewhere (in honor of the planets that died birthing that note). But it started here first and if you missed Mister You're A Better Man Than I, then you missed one of the great moments in rock history.

It's tempting, given the relative paucity of Americans, to suggest that the recently released This Is the Blues, Volumes 1-4 instead be titled This Is The British Blues, or, even better, This Is British Blues-Rock. After all, nearly every track on these four discs comes from either older tribute albums to Peter Green's original Fleetwood Mac (as well as a bit of his solo work), British blues pioneer Cyril Davies and American blues institution John… more »

An Introduction to the Yardbirds

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

There were many British bands that swiveled rock's glorious adolescence, but for my nascent psychedelia and guitar drool, the Yardbirds have long held the most resonance. The wonder of first hearing the extended rave-up of "I'm A Man;" the Gregorian chants of "Still I'm Sad;" the eastern swami of "Over Under Sideways Down;" the clarion clang of the harpsichord in "For Your Love" forever changed for me how I would hear rock music. I sometimes think… more »
