Jeff Beck The Dare-Devil

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 26 May 1973

WHEN HE'S playing nice, you couldn't possibly hope to hear more creative or more exciting rock guitar playing than that of Jeff Beck. He was the first, and possibly the best, of the maniac lead guitarists. He launches a full-blast all-fronts attack on your senses with strange tones, previously unheard-of techniques, and a constant barrage of bizarre ideas. The super guitarist to end most, if not all, super guitarists.
