Album of the Day

Blow by Blow, by Jeff Beck (1975): To be honest, I'm not overly familiar with Jeff Beck's work. I ended up with this disc because a while back in Guitar Player they had a "50 Essential Guitar Albums" list (or something similar) and I tried to pick up as many as I could, particularly those in the Columbia House mail order catalog. This was one of those discs. I don't listen to is often, but it is a fairly good slice of mid-70s jazz-rock. Beck's axework dominates, of course, but there's lots of tasty electric piano on most tracks, too. I could do without the strings on the last cut, tho'.
