Album of the Day
Live at the Hollywood Bowl
Jeff Beck was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on this day in 2009, and the double-disc LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL showcases the music that put him there. From a generous helping of Yardbirds classics (“Heart Full Of Soul,” “Shapes Of Things”) to solo favorites including “Beck’s Bolero” and more recent releases (“The Revolution Will Be Televised”), the 21 tracks do justice to both the guitarist's rich history and his still-dazzling fretwork. Beck's admirers include many musicians, and Aerosmith vocalist Steven Tyler, keyboardist Jan Hammer and fellow axeman Buddy Guy are among the guest stars heard in support at this August 2016 concert. With great fidelity and outstanding performances, LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL is an ideal showcase for one of rock's greatest instrumentalists.
