    Hated that album, I have to admit. I have a tape of the outtakes somewhere.

    Yes, that album sounds very dated now unlike his earlier albums.

    Speaking of JB's albums, the one that seems to be overlooked in the media is 'Jeff,' the third of his so called programmed albums. It has such amazing compositions and playing on it, its one of my favourites.

    That was everything that is awful about Beck.

    Wow. I'd completely forgotten about this, and it was worth forgetting. Why did I click on that link?

    Well, thank you for pointing out something I doubt I would have made it through unless for interest in comedy (the plane boss, the PLANE!!!).

    The solo was a show piece for sure.

    It also featured a large man in a cowboy hat taking a break from eating his sandwich to comment on it.

    The '80s were a bad influence. To me that was kinda degrading to Jeff Beck; he's too good to be chasing '80s wankers.

    So you're saying you didn't like the "Glamour Shots" star back drop during his interview spot at the end? :)

    The guy the camera focuses on first is the real singer on that track, Jimmy Hall from Wet Willie, and a local boy from here in Mobile, AL, and one of the better rock/blues voices ever, IMO.

    Great guy as well. He and Jeff have been friends for a long time.

    Love that tune and his solo is GREAT....I like the Nile Rodgers thing in there, even w/ the plasticky 80's production and sounds. Also, I agree, Jimmy Hall is S I C K.

    JB sounds so much better when he has proper tunes and proper singers instead of trying to hold down an entire concert w/ just his gtr.

    That video reminded of why I have tried to forget the 80's.

    If you think that's Jeff's greatest performance, you haven't listened to much Beck.

    A bit tongue in cheek, but thought that would be obvious.
