REVIEW:

This release presents the recording of two concerts previously unavailable and it is quite strange that it comes in cdr format and not on a silver disc; anyway the first one is the Stockholm concert from late April 1968 and this is one of the few recordings of the Jeff Beck Group featuring Junior Woods (formerly with Tomorrow) on bass instead of Ronnie Wood that wanted to play guitar and left the group. The band does not seem that inspired as well as Jeff Beck whose playing on Love Is Blue seems to be offhandedly as if he really didn t want to play it. It was said that Junior Woods had a very low profile in respect to Ron Wood guitarist approach and it is quite evident here. However there are good numbers too as Pretty Woman and Jeff s Boogie are usual showcase for Beck s hot solos; strangely there are two versions of I   Ain t Superstitious, both instrumental though. The last three tracks come from New York s Fillmore East in mid June, in May Ronnie Wood had re joined Jeff Beck tempted by the band s American debut. An Ecstatic review was given by famous rock critic Robert Shelton who did eyewitness the band s first show on June 14th. The three tracks here included show a powerful band who caused something like a mild furor in the words of The Village that commented the surprise that caught the audience off guard by the unexpected rock blues approach. The three songs are in great stereo here and the real gem of this release.
