Well, I rolled and I tumbled
Cried the whole night long
Well, I rolled and I tumbled
Cried the whole night long
When I woke up this morning
Didn't know right or wrong
Well, if the river was a whiskey
And I was a diving duck
If the river was a whiskey
And I was a diving duck
Well, I would dive to the bottom
I'd swear, I'd never come up

Well, I coulda had religion
In this bad old Sunday
I coulda had religion
In this bad old Sunday
But whiskey and bad love
Wouldn't let me have my way

I rolled and I tumbled
And I rolled and I tumbled
I rolled and I tumbled

Woof! Robin Trower segues into Jeff beck. I know I shouldn't make comparisons but ... WTF. Beck all the way. This guy is seriously inventive, seriously innovative.
This is actually Imogen Heap (with Jeff Beck) and just the most amazing rendering of this classic song.

Oh, yeah, that is one amazing concert.

Are you sure?  Beck is a musical martinet and e'rso precise by nature - I would expect him to be the one driving the programming, doing the mastering and sampling etc..
 

Heap is a great modern mistress of sampling and mastering. She's been doing livestreams of her sampling work, which are super fun to watch.

Oh Bill...... Trower followed by Beck....This is bliss to these old ears....
 
Preceeded by Satriani!  A fantastic trifecta indeed.  And throw Imogen in.  What a way to start my work day!!!!!
Groovy.. Amazing how we live our lives and take for granted the awesome music that we grew up with.. RP is awesome..
My Lord, I find her voice incredibly sexy on this track. Youch!
Holy cow - Satriani, Trower, then Beck .  Work has stopped.

And listening to them in  row, I think the order is right, with Beck on top. His tone, feel, and playfulness are not equaled.
Play Isolation!!

I need to explore Imogen Heap further - introduced to her years ago through her quirky electronica, and her 'Toadlickers' collaboration with Thomas Dolby is both foot stompin good and lyrically hilarious. This is a good rip all 'round. Versatile lass.

I was going to make the same comment.  Followed my Leonard Cohen's "Who by Fire" did not keep the mood flowing the same way in the least.  PSD for me.

God is shredding again. What else to do on a Saturday night? It goes to 11!
Saw him at Wolf Trap last August. The concert concluded and the audience rose from their seats to leave. The guy next to me tells his date "You have been to church".
Well.....this is just bitchen!!
Still one of Beck's best

I saw her just before Christmas  supporting Josh Groban.  Just her and a piano.  I thought her set was dreadful, not using her tech talents at all.  I think the audience wondered what was going on.  She even forgot the lyrics at one point.

Good version; nice 'n' raunchy.

checkout R.L. Burnside 's cover of this great blues tune. 7 for JB an 8 for RLB. Keep on rocking, RP.
I thought this was Joan Osborne. But no, survey says Imogene Heap. I'm surprised, but in a good way.  Beck rules.

I believe the drums and bass on this album are programmed.  The whole thing stops you in your tracks and the only place I have heard it broadcast, like so much else here, is Radio Paradise.  But marvellous though the album is I find the chops and fills too intense, once a month or so is about right.

Ok that was pretty fantastic.  Nice combo - Beck and Heap!
This will get the morning cranking! Beck is the best player of his generation hands down.
Wow... Just... Wow.
Vocals by Imogen Heap.
If truly great music and playing is a sign of insanity — Beck is a lunatic. 
This is one of those, "If I have to explain to you what's good about this, you won't understand"-songs!
GREAT song by one of BEST players ever!  A solid 10, to belittle is a sin.

worth at least a 9 - done.
Good stuff!
Please make this song go away :)

Wow, I was listening in the background while working and this made me stop, click over to see who it was, and crank it up. This is a kick-ass tune. I love the interplay between the vocals and the guitar, the complete pauses preceded by a couple of power chords... so nicely crafted. 

 
Did the same!  A beauty of a piece
Whoa, what is THIS?!?
 
That's Vinnie Colaiuta (drummer). I know him from Frank Zappa.

what a great line up - imogen heap, jeff beck, tal wilkenfeld (sorry, don't know the drummer or key player).  i just love watching beck's hands!

 

 

 

He could play.  Could not sing, but that's ok

Check out his new album Loud Hailer.  Same badass stuff.
 
Just the most stunning guitar work. Awe inspiring in it's simplicity and power. Sounds so easy - just rolls out the guitar like a crazy voice. 
Hot hot hot.


So hot. 
Rock on {#Drummer}

He IS insanely good, but this song is boring and lack luster. A God never the less. Just not one of his finer moments.

When I looked for the name of the vocalist, I found this!

Can't say this enough: it feels so good when something I hear for something and really, really dig happens to be highly appreciated by "my fellow listeners" {#Bounce}
This thing sounds like nothing else, and totally obvious and familiar at the same time. Bliss.
A full out 10, and props to Bill for the segue from Godless to this...nicely played.
Prime amp music to get going before a surf session.
Well, this is awesome   

And the bass line right before she sings "Well I could have had religion" is the clue of this version.
This song is giving me a headache...annoying!
If the river was whiskey
And I was a diving duck
Well, I would dive to the bottom
I'd swear, I'd never come up


Oh YES....do love this one!

On the Ronnie Scott DVD...I think the singer was Imogen Heap. It was her for sure doing "Music is my blanket.... same show. That was totally awesome.

 
Yes. Imogen Heap.

He's been practicing a lot recently. But I believe he has potential.

I play this song not often - because I love it so much and I don't want it to ever get old for me.  I love this.
The original Beck, and he was rollin and tumblin LONG before 2001.
yeah, this is hot!
Love this version.{#Dancingbanana_2}
