Jeff Beck Group Rough And Ready on 180g Import LP from Speakers Corner

After a life-threatening 1969 car accident, guitar ace Jeff Beck was forced to retire for nearly two years but returned to the scene full of vigor and with new musicians to launch the second Jeff Beck Group. 1971's Rough And Ready doesn't offer what might be expected from Brit-rock as far as a heavy sound or the boss's egomaniacal leaps on the guitar strings are concerned. Bob Tench opens the album with a surprisingly soulful sound and soaring falsetto in "Get The Feeling." But then in the next number, "Situation," we have crackling fire from the lead guitar and inventive solos - all easy-going and down-to-earth. Beck wouldn't tolerate routine rock: this is obvious from "Max's Tune," in which developing melodies are hacked to pieces by the clash of cymbals. To round off the album, the band sings about "Jody" with constantly varying rhythms and fascinating harmonic twists, which genially and firmly find their way along the narrow path between sentiment and testosterone.
