on our list of the Top 10 Jeff Beck Songs) with another record produced, at least partially, by George Martin. What Do You Want seems like it is going to be easily forgotten until finally Beck appears and you start to wonder, my God, did this guy already play like this in 1966? Rough and Ready' sports some of Beck's best tunes; "Got The Feeling", "I've Been Used" and "New Ways/Train Train" but it remains the unabashed rock record of its time; falling prey to those excesses and has eventfully been obscured by time.

Forming The Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart on vocals and Ronnie Wood on bass, The Jeff Beck Group took Willie Dixon’s blues standard and transformed it into a molten colossus of a track.Later, 1972’s Jeff Beck Group album, recorded with a reconfigured line-up in Memphis and produced by Steve Cropper, saw Beck try his hand at soul on covers including Ashford and Simpson’s I Can’t Give Back The Love I Feel For You and Stevie Wonder’s I Got To Have A Song. Imelda May appears for “Lilac Tree”, a very pretty ballad, and Josh Stone gives us a rip roaring performance of “I Put A Spell On You”, and sounds like she really means it. Most of his best known work is here – “Led Boots”, “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers” and a bit rushed “Where Were You”, but he once again outdoes himself with “A Day In The Life”, and shows he is one of the few who can do a Beatles song justice.

The album includes vocalist Rosie Bones and is a showcase for Beck to demonstrate the fact that his guitar playing still rocks and is capable of captivating listeners with other worldly sounds. Nick Mason confessed that Pink Floyd had initially wanted to ask Beck to replace Syd Barrett but were too afraid to ask him. But you can't miss such memorable pieces such as I Ain't Superstitious, Let Me Love You or You Shook Me that would mark the way forward for Jimmy Page and his new band, Led Zeppelin. One thing Jeff Beck did not do was steal old blues numbers and take credit for them, as somebody else was infamous for doing.Over the course of six decades, Jeff Beck has released 17 studio albums and half as many live recordings along with winning eight Grammys and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. So as we say goodbye to a Mount Rushmore figure in not just guitar-playing but all of music, we rank these 15 as Jeff Beck's Best Albums. Beck was embarrassed by his accidental 1967 hit, referring to it as like having a pink toilet seat hung around his neck for the rest of his life. Perhaps more interesting is the reuniting of Jeff Beck with Rod Stewart, who joins him for a beautiful “People Get Ready”, maybe the most soulful solo Jeff Beck would ever play. s 'You Had It Coming' sees Jeff Beck continue down the electronica, post-rave beat path with what is arguably the second instalment of an accidental trilogy.

Once he left the Yardbirds, Beck and his guitar remained the star of the show, even when he recruited pals like Keith Moon, Rod Stewart and Ron Wood to play on his records. It is a begrudgingly interesting effort even if many listeners including Jeff himself would rather forget it. Jeff Beck Group' contains "Going Down," one of Beck's best-known tracks and a perennial concert favourite, as well as the album-opening highlight "Ice Cream Cakes.This album needs a fire extinguisher nearby, such is the energy and great sounds of good old fashioned real rock and roll and good times. Aligned to the Stones and Pretty Things, thanks to an authentic approach to playing the blues, their demos featured here, including Trouble In Mind, Nursery Rhyme and Wandering Man Blues capture a fledgling Beck already master of his instrument and pushing boundaries with the use of feedback. After his break from the scene, Jeff Beck formed Beck, Bogert and Appice, with the late Tim Bogert on vocals and drums and Carmine Appice on drums.
