I find it pretty easy to tell which Yardbird's songs he was on. They are are the 'interesting' ones.
 
Want him live? Better hurry. Have you checked his DOB? I'm not saying he's ill or anything, but one or two more concert-less pandemic seasons and you might miss a once-in-a-lifetime shot at witnessing greatness. 
IMHO, Clapton is a very talented guitarist, Jimmy is a magician...but Jeff is the "artiste"of the 3. NTBM! (Not to be missed)
He's on my own funeral playlist...in several places. 😁
Thought it was Buckethead... Now I know of another influence of his <3
Is there anyone who can make a guitar sing like he does?
I've always appreciated that his focus has always been on his craft and respect his humility. A quiet warrior...

Tell me more. They contacted on that days? ? 
The guy's a fuck'n genius.

sublime.
Ha!

When I glanced at the song title, I thought I read "Superstition" and kept waiting for the searing guitar.  

He sounded more like Pat Methaney on this track. 
When Beck was composing this track, he should have asked Mike Oldfield to join him. 
{#Bananajam}I like Jeff Beck
Kind of a Daniel Lanois vibe going on here.  Very nice.

Durutti right? That's what I went to check for when I heard the guitar.

 
Sometimes great musicians may go in the same direction; I imagine Jeff Beck and Vini Reilly are familiar with each other's work.
Great!
I was not familiar with this song.  I could've sworn that it was Daniel Lanois at first.
k, sounding Durruti tru, still man its Super cool   : P
Not only does he have the chops of a god, but he has a knack for interesting and, at times, understated melodies and production skills. Does he produce his newer releases himself? I ask because it really seems like his songs are written around, or at least at the same time as, the production itself.

A 10!!! 
Yes if you do not have a suspencion , you do'nt go anywhere!!
I really liked this song so I bought the CD, I have to say the rest of the album did not remotely resemble this song. But this song, yeah, nice.

The Man.
A first!  A Jeff Beck song that I didn't PSD 
Nice tune -> 8

A "Godlike" 10 for me.

was not expecting anything like this....



thanks
When I was a kid, J.B. was it!.....nice to see him still trucking...7
I picked up this CD because of this song, after my one listen this is still the standout track. 
Beck keeps a rolling. 
This time, exquisitely.
 
A 9 for Mr. Beck.
For me haunting, but not in an eerie way, more for it's exploration of sadness, ending with just the right twinge may-hap a stirring of hope, well spoken Mr. Beck!
Quite possibly my favorite JB song of the last 15 yrs or so...exquisite
Class

Amen! Love it.
One of the few beck's song I Can listen to!

Yes - it has that dreamy quality.  It's good.

like it but blow by blow and wired still hold a special place
This could be a day when he is number one.{#Jump}
Jeff is in the Top 5 rock guitarists of all time.
Some days I think he's numero uno.
Say him on recent tour. I have 5 or 6 albums but never really appreciated his skill and style till seeing him live. He plays loud, tons of volume  but the sound he produces is so controlled and clear. Good band. Only one song had vocal accompaniment. It was a great night of instrumental music. He even manage to sneak in his rendition of a Lady Gaga tune with warning to the crowd that it was going to tongue in cheek.
 
Albatrossish. #8
Well. That was nice.

It's so atmospheric!
I can never get over the mastery of this man  {#Meditate}
what a BRILLIANT guitarist...
I am so bummed I wasn't able to make it to Beck's Pittsburgh concert at the Carnegie Music Hall.  Anyone go? How was it?
This reminds me of Explosions in the Sky.

Excellent song.  First time I've heard it.  Beck always has something cool to offer his listeners.
Nice!
One of the stellar tracks of the last ten years from JB IMHO

Was very surprised to hear this was Jeff Beck.  I don't usually associate such smoothness with him — he seems to go for jagged sounds a lot more often, which doesn't always agree with me.  This is quite beautiful.
 
Wouldn't have thought Beck either. Damn good. Gotta check this record out

I love this entire CD. Bringing in Imogen Heap to do vocals was stroke of genius.

The first time I heard "Rollin' and Tumblin" I pulled off to the side of the road to listen to it.


 


You got that right.

I thought Bill Frisel. Nice track though.

Now I'm up for a Wilko Johnson tune!!!

I always find myself going back to his "Guitar Shop" album.  All of his stuff is good but that one resonates with me more than the others.

Can't wait for the new material and the tour. He is at the top of his game again and having fun with the new band. A very talented group.
was this the instrumental guitar music? i'm guessing it was, it really stood out.
This choice makes me wonder where's Daniel Lanois on RP? (but since I already have about everything he's done, that's OK for me)

Where's the NEW stuff from J Beck?

Did you ever hear 'Blow by Blow'? also really good

It is kinda hard to believe that this comes from the same album as "Rollin and Tumblin". Polar opposite songs yet both beautiful in their own manner. Guess it just goes to show what a genius Beck can be.
Beautiful - thanks
Oooohhh — this is like sailing out into calm, slippy, waters under a warm sun and blue-blue sky, having been stuck in a freezing misty, choppy, cross-grained sea for the last 1/2 hour  (an unprecedented sequence of 4s 3s 2s and 1s).  Meh;  at last back into RP-land!

So—was I the only person to confuse Beck and Jeff Beck?  I bought one of Beck's CD's a few years ago, and though, "Wow, he looks really young for having been in the Faces back in the 60's."

Well, neither artist was in The Faces, but when I first heard mention of a recording artist named "Beck", I thought that Jeff Beck had formed a new band, until I heard "Loser", that is.

another JB stud!

that was really great-
Sublime stuff from the master.

Luv it!!!
yes.....   -   8.
I like anything that puts me at peace!

Kinda drifty, ethereal, I like it......
Just had to re-rate my 10...to 10 again!

Anyone get to see his performance at Eric Clapton's crossroads fest in Chicago this past summer? Saw it on DVR and man the girl that played bass with him is fierce!

Coming as it does on the end of a fairly hard-rocking album, I always liked the feeling this song gives that Beck still has a keen sense of touch and timing.
This whole album is great. I've listened to it dozens of times.
Kinda Pink Floydy
...kind of reminds me of michael brook...
Jeff Beck, give me space man :meditate:
probably one of my favorite pieces of music ... ever.
This is and has been pushing it's way into my one of favorite JB tunes of the last decade or so. Dramatically understated... His live shows are a treat too...
love it, love it, love it.
Whole album (sorry, CD) is good - this track is there for total chillout and relax; it works...
Why does this song always remind my of Maverick and Charlie in Top Gun?
Man, Jeff is so good. Amazing talent yet still under the radar of so many people. He just awes with his playing. And a car nut, as well!
I just ordered a CD of performances from last year's tour. Apparently, jaws were dropping at the sheer power of the musicans performance. Order it at www.jeffbeck.com
Nice!!
Simplicity at its finest.
chill-axin'
really nice :smile:
Never heard this before - nice. Jeff Beck deserves a lot more credit - he always pulls new (good!) sounds from the guitar, going back to the Yardbirds.

Jeff Beck's hobby is customizing cars. The dirty, workstained hands are legit. Also, it isn't crap. Jeff Beck may well be the single best living guitarist on this planet.
what a guy!!!
If it gives me chill bumps, it's a 10. :)
Sublime. Spare and yet complete.
Beck has from his early days taken the sound of the electric guitar into a new realm. And so again, he brings us to that threshold. Clean playing too!
That was sweet, thanks.

Another from one of the most enigmatic musicians to ever pick up a guitar. Play on.
Bill, you are in a spacy mood this a.m.
no way what so ever the song stinks and stinks othing original in it gets a zero from me
Wow. Nice work.

No, IMHO all the tracks on the album are very different from one another. I like this and "Nadia" the best of all of them. Clearly I'm listening to the right station...

Let's see you produce anything even close to this from your armchair, brainiac. "Phone this crap in"...you're priceless.
An absolute masterpiece from an outstanding disc by one of the great guitar masters.
