Whenever Jeff Beck releases an album, it's always a musical event. As the first in a series of tribute
albums over the years acknowledging his favorite artists, Jeff Beck & The Big Town Playboys delivered the brilliant rockabilly classic Crazy Legs in 1993.
This rockin' masterwork highlights the guitar hero's admiration of Gene Vincent and most notably his Blue Caps guitarist Cliff Gallup, one of Jeff Beck's biggest inspirations. Along with his stellar backing band, The Big Town Playboys, featuring Mike Sanchez (vocals and piano), Adrian Utley (rhythm guitar) Ian Jennings (upright bass, backing vocals), Leo Green (saxophone) and Clive Deamer (drums, backing vocals), Crazy Legs truly has become one of the finest albums in this genre.
The award winning guitar shredder and his quintet of amazing master musicians truly throw down some of his classiest and hardest driving repertoire for this Stuart Coleman (Jeff Beck) production.
The album begins with the made for guitar rocker Race With The Devil. The tune finds Jeff Beck and the band plowing away on some very solid power riffs making this a great opening track for the listener.
The jump vibe of Crusin' has the tremendous voicing of Jeff's guitar with Clive Deamer's fine drum work and the powerful vocals of Mike Sanchez.
Always an astute bluesman, Blues Stay Away From Me retains a solid groove which allows Jeff Beck to power away with some very intricate fret work, making this album the classic that it is.
More rockabilly madness continues with more Gene Vincent classics like Double Talkin' Baby, Baby Blue, Hold Me, Hug Me Rock Me and of course the stellar title track Crazy Legs. In total, eighteen magical tracks that truly reward fans with one of the finest albums in Jeff Beck's multiplatinum decade career.
