Numbered, Limited Edition Hybrid SACD!
Featuring Rod Stewart, Jimmy Page, Ron Wood & Keith Moon!
Jeff Beck's debut solo LP was bound to be a great record with a band
featuring talent like Rod Stewart on vocals, Ronnie Wood on guitar, plus
contributions from Jimmy Page, Nicky Hopkins, Aynsley Dunbar and Keith Moon. The
1968 album got off to a staggering start and peaked at number 15 on the
Billboard 200. Astoundingly good for a band that had been utterly unknown in the
U.S. just six months earlier.
Truth was critically acclaimed for its daring, radical nature, elements of which
would be appropriated by practically every metal band that followed. The
recording is certainly regarded as a seminal work of heavy metal because of its
use of blues toward a hard rock approach.
The combination of the wailing, heart-stoppingly dramatic vocalizing by Stewart,
the thunderous rhythm section of Ron Wood's bas, Mickey Waller's drums and
Beck's blistering guitar, which sounds like his amp is turned up to 13 and ready
to short out, was as groundbreaking and influential a record as the first
Beatles, Rolling Stones or Who albums.
There are lots of truly awesome unexpected moments on this recording, such as
Beck's speaker-to-speaker guitar slides. It was a triumph of great tunes that
are masterfully performed.
