Then Townshend came along and did the whole thing with fire and everything [probably meaning Hendrix], smashing up Strats. The thing is, nobody saw me do it; I was just playing small clubs then. The neighbours always hated Abbey Road Studios. It had a pair of Tannoy speakers on the roof of it. There was this little old lady walking her dog, and he almost ran her over.
Of course, it was so loud everyone heard it. I remember that one very well. On vinyl, side two of Truth opens with Beck having picked up an acoustic for a shaky but stirring version of the classical… er, classic Greensleeves. It was the vital last track of the album, and nobody could think of what to play, so I just played it. Here, the sense of what the Jeff Beck Group may have sounded like with Dunbar on drums comes to mind.
If Beck and Page toss dazed and confused looks at one another trying to explain why they recorded the same track on their debut records, when it comes to unravelling the mystery of who wrote this monster instrumetal, total amnesia sets in. He had a string, and it sounded so full, LP, really fat and heavy. And I just played the melody. And I went home and worked out the other bit [the up-tempo section]. It was just left to me and Jeff, because the producer, [Simon] Napier-Bell, just pissed off.
So, Jeff was playing, and I was sort of in the box [control booth]. It came off right. It was a good line-up, with Keith Moon and everything. I remember that Moon did this amazing fill around the kit and a U47 [mic] just left its stand and went flying across the room; he just cracked it one. It was fun. The shouts and screams on the next track come not from an angry Beck but from an enthusiastic crowd. Blues Deluxe is a straight blues rigged up with a live-audience ambient backing track to give the feeling of a live performance.
With the album in the can, producer Mickie Most talked to Columbia about a release date. Not only did they not have a date in sight, they were reluctant to even assign one. Here Beck was, sitting on an album that could launch his band as the next Cream or pre-empt Zeppelin, and he was exiled to a hellish limbo.
It paid off. American audiences were astonished by what they saw and heard on those trailblazing Jeff Beck Group shows. The band had struck gold. The following day The New York Times ran a LP review, and Grant LP that he was sitting on Blues De Luxe - Jeff Beck - Truth (Vinyl gunpowder keg and the fuse had just been lit. He immediately wired the review to Epic Records, and they responded with the offer of a deal.
Truth was almost as groundbreaking and influential a record as the first Beatles, Rolling Stones, or Who albums. Its attributes weren't all new -- Cream and Jimi Hendrix had been moving in similar directions -- but the combination was: the wailing, heart-stoppingly dramatic vocalizing by Rod Stewart, the thunderous rhythm section of Ron Wood's bass and Mickey Waller's drums, and Beck's blistering lead guitar, which sounds like his amp is turned up to 13 and ready to short out.
