As another installment in our 180 Gram Audiophile Master series on guitar great Jeff Beck, we are proud to announce the Friday Music exclusive release of Wired.
Recorded in 1976 with the legendary George Martin as producer (The Beatles), both reprise their magic from Beck’s Blow By Blow (FRM 33409) with a stunning new array of jazz-rock-funk fusion, which is often sited as one of this genres finest recordings.
This time for the eight incredible tracks, Jeff brings back the great Max Middleton on keys and Richard Bailey on drums, as well as new additions and future mainstay keyboardist Jan Hammer and the power drums of Michael Narada Walden, plus bassist Wilbur Bascomb.
With legendary tracks like Charles Mingus’s Goodbye Pork Pie Hat, and Jan Hammer’s Blue Wind, Wired soon became a radio and retail staple which has truly endured and stood the test of time. Rightfully so, this album continues to inspire and influence a whole new generation of guitar players and music lovers worldwide, and we feel this impeccable audiophile version is just what all of us have been waiting for.
Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and pressed at RTI. First time gatefold cover!
