Jeff Beck is perhaps the most underrated guitarist of the '60s and '70s. Hendrix, Clapton, and Page get the lion's share of praise, but none of them are as expressive or precise as Beck. Don't believe us? One search on YouTube, and you will be treated to a masterclass on right hand technique. From the opening track's "You Know What I Mean" guitar gymnastics, a disco-reggae "She's A Woman" cover, and "Freeway Jam" freak-out, it's impossible to listen to this funk-rock masterpiece and not groove!
We've all heard of the recording technique "Wall of Sound," but you've never heard its full effect until you've explored the Ronettes. In the '60s, the intention was to maximize the possibilities of studio recording to create an unusually dense orchestral aesthetic for pop music that came across well through lo-fi radios and jukeboxes of the era. To hear it with modern precision, you'll appreciate the genius of arrangements in what might initially sound like simple pop songs. Side note: "All Things Must Pass" would not exist without this record.
