Jeff Beck – Blow By Blow 200g 45RPM 2 LP Analogue Productions Vinyl
“Beck brought in George Martin to produce Blow by Blow, and the result was not only Beck’s best album, but Martin’s most significant post-Beatles production. Martin wrote the string arrangements for two tracks, ‘Scatterbrain’ and ‘Diamond Dust’ and sequenced the album so that its flow seems inevitable. … In the AP pressing (on ‘You Know What I Mean’) Beck’s chords are more harmonically detailed, and (Phil) Chen’s bass sounds cleaner and snappier. … Beck’s guitar lines are far better focused on the new LP. … It’s hard to imagine a better-sounding version of Blow by Blow than these new discs from Analogue Productions.” — Joseph Taylor, SoundStage! Hi-Fi, October 2015
1975 was a magical year for Jeff Beck. Already a rock superstar from his groundbreaking guitar work with The Yardbirds, Jeff Beck Group and Beck Bogert & Appice, Beck’s Blow By Blow was a total artistic leap into new musical territory which netted the guitar hero massive acclaim.
Produced by the legendary George Martin, Blow By Blow features nine smokin’ tracks of instrumental genius as only Jeff Beck could provide. Now Blow By Blow is back bigger and better than ever!
