Late Night FDL: A Day In The Life
Jeff Beck is about to release some new-old stuff…
Jeff Beck is to release an expanded version of his 2007 live package recorded at Ronnie Scott’s.
The 2CD/3LP Performing This Week…Live At Ronnie Scott’s – Special Edition is issued on June 1 via Eagle Rock and delivers full audio from the London shows for the first time, adding a pair of tracks with guest Eric Clapton as well as the full seven-song set with the rhythm and blues revival outfit The Big Town Playboys – previously only available on the 2009 companion Blu-ray release.
Guest appearances by Joss Stone and Imogen Heap are also featured, as they were on the original package, which won Beck a 2009 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Rock performance for his version of The Beatles classic A Day In The Life.
Performing This Week…Live At Ronnie Scott’s – Special Edition presents a snapshot of Beck’s career, from the Yardbirds to The Jeff Beck Group, solo success and beyond.
Beck’s formative years are the subject of last month’s release of the two-hour documentary entitled A Man For All Seasons: Jeff Beck In The 1960s.
The guitarist will play two weeks of solo shows in the States next month before re-teaming with ZZ Top to perform a series of rescheduled concerts from last autumn after bassist Dusty Hill injured his hip in a fall on the band’s tour bus.
