Jeff Beck Group – The Jeff Beck Group (“The Orange Album”)
“Jeff Beck Group is the fourth and final studio album by the Jeff Beck Group and the second album with the line up of Jeff Beck, Bobby Tench, Clive Chaman, Max Middleton and Cozy Powell. The album was produced by Steve Cropper and often referred to as the Orange Album, because of the orange which appears prominently at the top of the front cover… they also recorded five cover songs for this album, including a new version of Ashford & Simpson’s “I Can’t Give Back the Love I Feel for You” and Carl Perkins’s Sun Records release, “Glad All Over” (1957). The Cropper and Beck collaboration “Sugar Cane” was one of several songs written whilst in the studio.” (Wiki)
Like the last record, it met with mixed reviews, mostly negative, but once again I liked it a bunch. I always try to appreciate the time and care put into a record, imagine the band in the studio getting it how they wanted it. And this didn’t miss for me, not at all!
