Guitar legend Jeff Beck to release new concert Blu-ray next month


By Steve Newton

Hey guitar freaks: get ready for the best news you’ve heard all week. Eagle Rock Entertainment announced today that it will release a new Jeff Beck live Blu-ray (or DVD for you neanderthals) on November 24.

Live in Tokyo will features the world’s greatest living rock guitarist with his new backing band of guitarist Nicolas Meier, bassist Rhonda Smith, and drummer Jonathan Joseph. (Yeah, I don’t get why he needs a second guitarist either.)

The show was filmed at the Tokyo Dome City Hall last April, and includes such Beck concert standards as his versions of Stevie Wonder’s “Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers”, Hendrix’ “Little Wing”, and the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life”.  I myself can’t wait to hear what he does with the olde English ballad “Danny Boy”. God I love that tune.

I sure hope Live in Tokyo is as good as Beck’s previous Blu-ray, Performing This Week…Live At Ronnie Scott’s. Judging by this clip of “Big Block”, from the stellar Guitar Shop album of 1989, it could be:


2) Little Wing

3) You Know You Know

4) Hammerhead

5) Angel (Footsteps)

6) Stratus

7) Yemin

8) Where Were You

9) The Pump

10) Medley: Goodbye Pork Pie Hat / Brush With The Blues

11) You Never Know

12) Danny Boy

13) Blue Wind

14) Led Boots

15) Corpus Christi

16) Big Block

17) A Day In The Life

18) Rollin’ And Tumblin’

19) Cause We Ended As Lovers

20) Why Give It Away
