Jeff Beck: Jeff Beck Group

Charles Shaar Murray, Oz, July 1972

SINCE HIS LAST album, Beck has brought in an outside producer, Steve Cropper, no less. Unlike Rough and Ready, this one features some real songs, like Don Nix’s 'Going Down', Dylan’s 'Tonight I’ll be Staying Here with You', and a couple of Motown standards. 'Going Down' cuts Nix’s own version to pieces and comes near to equalling the version Stone the Crows use for their encore.

Total word count of piece: 246
