The Jeff Beck Group – Truth (1968, Loseless!)

The Jeff Beck Group – Truth (1968)
wma lossless

We already posted the remastered and expanded version of this, Beck’s debut here jeff-beck-truth-remastered

This is a great quality version of the original work.

Beck, of course, was one of the three noted guitarists — the others being Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page — to have recorded with the band The Yardbirds. He was ranked the 14th on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

His son, called Beck Beck released some hybrid albums such as Odelay in 1998!

https://i1.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fa/JeffBeckCrossroads2007.jpg/220px-JeffBeckCrossroads2007.jpgJeff Beck’s time with The Yardbirds was short, allowing Beck only one full album, “Yardbirds” aka Roger the Engineer (1966). Beck left after 18 months, partly for health reasons. For a few months he shared the dual-lead guitar role with Jimmy Page, who had joined the Yardbirds as a bass player, but quickly moved to co-lead guitar, with Chris Dreja moving on bass .

While on the surface Beck seems to have departed the group because of his health, Page, who had been invited into the band for a second time in 1966 by Beck himself, tells a different story:

“ It was on that Dick Clark tour — there were a few incidents. One time in the dressing room I walked in and Beck had his guitar up over his head, about to bring it down on Keith Relf’s head, but instead smashed it on the floor,” Jimmy Page recalled years later. “Relf looked at him with total astonishment and Beck said, ‘Why did you make me do that?’ Fucking hell. Everyone said, ‘My goodness gracious, what a funny chap.’ We went back to the hotel and Beck showed me his tonsils, said he wasn’t feeling well and was going to see a doctor. He left for L.A., where we were headed anyway. When we got there, though, we realized that whatever doctor he was claiming to see must’ve had his office in the Whiskey. He was actually seeing his girlfriend, Mary Hughes, and had just used the doctor bit as an excuse to cut out on us. ”

The Yardbirds were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992. Beck wise-cracked at the ceremony that “Someone told me I should be proud tonight…But I’m not, because they kicked me out. Fuck them! (Laughs)… ”

The following year, after recording the one-off song “Beck’s Bolero” (with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Nicky Hopkins, and Keith Moon) and having two solo vocals hit singles in the UK (“Hi Ho Silver Lining” and “Tallyman”), Beck formed a new band called The Jeff Beck Group, which featured him on lead guitar, Rod Stewart on vocals, Ronnie Wood on bass, Nicky Hopkins on piano, and Micky Waller on drums.

The group produced two albums, Truth (August, 1968) and Beck-Ola (June, 1969). Both albums are highly acclaimed, and considered by many critics to have inspired the heavy metal genre.

Truth, released five months before the first Led Zeppelin album, features a cover of “You Shook Me”, a song first recorded by Willie Dixon which was also covered on the Led Zeppelin debut. While it sold well (reaching #15 on the Billboard charts) and received great critical praise.

Truth did not equal the impact of the release by Page’s new band. Beck-Ola while well-received, was less successful both commercially and critically. Resentment, coupled with touring-related incidents, led the group to dissolve.

The album featured three original songwriting collaborations between Jeff Beck and singer Rod Stewart, “Let Me Love You”, “Blues Deluxe”, and “Rock My Plimsoul”. Highlighted by a re-recording of the Yardbirds’ “Shapes of Things”, Willie Dixon’s “I Ain’t Superstitious” and the traditional “Greensleeves.”

Guests include both guitarist Jimmy Page and keyboardist John Paul Jones on “Beck’s Bolero”, originally recorded in 1966 with Keith Moon on drums and Nicky Hopkins on piano, and released as the B side to Beck’s first solo release, “Hi Ho Silver Lining” in 1967.

This is the Remastered version of the Beck Group’s great debut “Truth” from 1968.

We’ve also posted the original work in lossless format here truth-1968-loseless

In 1968, having been kicked out of the Yardbirds and after recording the one-off song “Beck’s Bolero” (with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Nicky Hopkins, and Keith Moon) and having two solo vocals hit singles in the UK (“Hi Ho Silver Lining” and “Tallyman”), Beck formed a new band called The Jeff Beck Group, which featured him on lead guitar, Rod Stewart on vocals, Ronnie Wood on bass, Nicky Hopkins on piano, and Micky Waller on drums.

The group produced two albums, Truth (August, 1968) and Beck-Ola (June, 1969). Both albums are highly acclaimed, and considered by many critics to have inspired the heavy metal genre.

Truth was the first full-length album by Jeff Beck and his backing group. Enjoying strong reviews upon its release, Truth is now widely regarded as one of the first heavy metal albums, due to its blending of hard rock and blues.

The album featured three original songwriting collaborations between Jeff Beck and singer Rod Stewart, “Let Me Love You”, “Blues Deluxe”, and “Rock My Plimsoul”.

LP highlights include a re-recording of the Yardbirds’ “Shapes of Things”, Willie Dixon’s “I Ain’t Superstitious” and the traditional “Greensleeves.”

Guests include both guitarist Jimmy Page and keyboardist John Paul Jones on “Beck’s Bolero”, originally recorded in 1966 with Keith Moon on drums and Nicky Hopkins on piano, and released as the B side to Beck’s first solo release, “Hi Ho Silver Lining” in 1967.
