jdgm Posted February 7, 2012 Report Share Posted February 7, 2012 Like many players I am a great fan of Jeff Beck. I just got the recent 2CD 'Live in Japan 1999' and it's yet another very fine set, with Jennifer Batten in the band. So now that is 6 live recordings released since 2003! In rough order, then: Live in Japan 1999 Live at BB King's Blues Club 2003 Official Bootleg USA Tour 2006 Performing this week Live at Ronnie Scott's (released 2008) Rock 'n' Roll Party honouring Les Paul (2010, released 2011) Live and exclusive from the Grammy Museum (2010) There is quite a lot of repetition of tunes - 5 versions of 'Brush with the Blues', 4 of 'A Day in the Life', etc. Some might reasonably feel that this many live sets with similar content is overkill, self-indulgent and so on...which it may be...but very welcome as he has had such an erratic recording career. He's still brilliant and any one of the above is worth hearing. And this amount of activity sort of raises the question; what about Jimmy Page? What/where/when/is he/will he? Ever?
