Jeff Beck, as visionary a guitarist, in his own way, as Jimi Hendrix, certainly heads anyone's list of most exciting rock 'n' roll fretboard whizzes ever. Beck made his name as the second of three hall of fame stringbenders for the equally legendary Yardbirds (following in the shoes of Eric Clapton and preceding the pre-Zep Jimmy Page). Known for his blistering leads and the wild chances he took as one of the first axemen to widely employ feedback during a solo, Beck hit the ground running when he left the Yardbirds in 1967 and would cut a pair of solo albums that didn't miss a beat from the greatness of his previous work. With future Stone Ron Wood on bass and Mickey Waller on drums, Beck was free to blow the roof off the studio with razor-sharp guitar work on his 1968 solo debut, Truth. The album's ace in the hole, of course, was the rise to fame of gravel-voiced singer Rod Stewart. Cuts like "Beck's Bolero" and the wah-wah infused genius of "I Ain't Superstitious" would show the way, beacon-like, to rock bands for years to come. This edition of Truth is the never-before-released MONO version of the Jeff Beck classic. An exact replica of this albums is now available on pristine High-Definition Vinyl. Taken from the original analog master tapes, loaded and ready for anyone's marathon rave-up, guaranteed to get quick results.

Never a Dull Moment

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Maybe it was Rod's sweetness, or just the fact that it didn't just drone on in some blues rock netherworld, but I actually liked this record. There's some Spirit at play here and I loved that Beck included "Greensleeves." Who knew? It's quirky and playful and "Never a Dull Moment." 3.5 Stars."
