Background: Released in 1969, Beck-Ola was the second album by the Jeff Beck Group and the last album to feature Rod Stewart on vocals.
The album reached #15 on the U.S. album chart and #39 on the UK chart.
When it was originally released in June 1969, Beck-Ola, the Jeff Beck Group’s second album, featured a famous sleeve note on its back cover: “Today, with all the hard competition in the music business, it’s almost impossible to come up with anything totally original. So we haven’t. However, this LP was made with the accent on heavy music. So sit back and listen and try and decide if you can find a small place in your heads for it.” Beck was reacting to the success of peers and competitors like Cream and Led Zeppelin here, bands that had been all over the charts with a hard rock sound soon to be dubbed heavy metal, and indeed, his sound employs much the same brand of “heavy music” as theirs, with deliberate rhythms anchoring the beat, over which the guitar solos fiercely and the lead singer emotes. … Beck-Ola stands as a prime example of late-’60s British blues-rock and one of Beck’s best records.
