REVIEW:

This release is one of the first to come out in memory of the late Jeff Beck; it is not a new one, though, but a remaster of a remaster; in fact the original version was called London Sessions but lacked the two October 9, 1967 tracks; then about 16 years ago, another torrent came out with the original files and a remaster was done in 2015, however this version had volume boosted. This version though did not use the files from such version with tracks rearranged as they are and a bonus track (This Morning).

All sessions here come from March 1967 through September 1968; from Track 20 onwards they come from Transcription Discs. Following the extensive notes from the first remaster we can therefore explain all these actions one by one:

a) Upgraded: After having finally downloaded a previous offer from a torrent site, those tracks were compared as far as quality was concerned with that of the ones found in the compiler’s collection and found that most were superior with one single exception: I Ain t Superstitious from the band’s first Saturday Club session, March 7, 1967 hence, this was replaced. b) Expanded: For some strange reason, This Morning from the 2nd July 4, 1967 Saturday Club session seemingly never appeared in any listings; perhaps it just wasn't re-broadcasted that often. Since there was a pretty good sounding version this was inserted where it belonged according to Chis Hjort s highly reliable and recommendable book Jeff's Book. c)  Corrected: The aforementioned track This Morning did appear on the London Sessions bootleg CD but in much lesser quality (the whole boot sounds heavily equalized, and ran faster throughout, anyway), wrongly listed as Walking By the Railings and as stemming from the Dave Symonds Show of September 9, 1967!

No tracks from that Symonds show have made it into wider circulation as of yet! Plus, Chris Hjort’s book lists Walking by the Railings as a (presumed) instrumental 2:12 min. number, whereas This Morning runs just over 5 minutes!

Some radio host comments on certain songs were part of tracks they didn't belong to, i.e. the track markings were set wrongly, so they have been edited out and placed them within the respective track they actually belonged to. A total of about 35 seconds of silence or hiss from several tracks have been edited out and thereby it has been possible to trim down the total run time to less than 80 minutes. In order to fit in a single Disc with all sessions tracks. As for Boosted: all tracks on the torrent had a considerable low recording level - in some cases more, in others less. Hence, it was decided to boost them all for a better audio image. Anyway, what was used was just an automatic limiter which avoids any kind of clipping,

Soundwise this is a great job, most of the songs have been enhanced as sound output that create the perfect ambiance for a jump back into the 60s where most of the most influential rock music had its beginning.


The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
