Robert Plant: "There was no infrastructure in Zeppelin!"

While never quite achieving the fame of Eric Clapton or Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck has been a durable guitar pioneer. Hugely influential, he’s displayed an open-minded approach to technical innovation, not to mention a healthy dose of irreverent humour. This compilation opens with Beck’s Joe Meek-produced sessions for Screaming Lord Sutch, and peaks with his collaborations with The Yardbirds, Jimmy Page, Paul Jones and Donovan. The collection also includes?of course?Beck’s 1967 chart hit “Hi Ho Silver Lining” and the surging “Beck’s Bolero”.
