REVIEW:

This new release from Godfather presents what is said to be the show held in Miami at  Thee Image Club in mid-November 1968 during Jeff Beck Group's 2nd US Tour and it is a great recording indeed. As with previous releases we must unfortunately state it is not,but just another copy of LuAnne's Dallas concert held in mid-July of the same year. And it is not a soundboard either but an excellent stereo audience tape very well balanced and with no hiss at all. Jeff Beck plays with confidence and creativity supported by Ron Wood's quick bass lines, Micky Waller's precise drumming and Rod Stewart 's vocals that show much character and personality. The set list presents many blues tunes starting with Elmore James "I Can't Hold Out" and "Sun Is Shining" , BB King's "Sweet Little Angel" and Willie Dixon's "I Ain't Superstitious". But of course Beck's creativity applies to rock as well with his own "Jeff's Boogie" and stuff like "Shapes Of Things" and "Beck's Bolero" which is reminiscent of the Yardbirds performances. But there is also as new material like "Rock My Plimsoul" and "Rice Pudding",  the latter featuring a short bass solo by Wood. Packaging is very good as usual with plenty of photos and interesting liner notes inside the trifold cover, too bad they didn't tell it like it is. Set lists for both Dallas and Miami are exactly the same but on the latter there is the addition of Nicky Hopkins on piano in the line up (he joined the tour about a month earlier); there is also the famous Beck remark "It is like a library here!" that is a clear marker of the Dallas concert. Many times in the past other labels claimed to have this recording but showed instead the July Dallas concert from the LuAnne's Club and Godfather made no exception too. Other than that it is great to enjoy this tape which presented a great double concert.
