Beck's Bolero (Jeff Beck)

23 MAY 1966


The instrumental 'Beck’s Bolero' was recorded on 16 May 1966 but released in 1967 as the B-side to Jeff Beck's debut solo single 'Hi Ho Silver Lining', which reached #14 in the UK on its (first) release. It also featured on 'Truth', the debut album from the Jeff Beck Group in 1968.

In the studio for this recording was a supergroup featuring Beck and Jimmy Page on guitar, Keith Moon on drums, John Paul Jones on bass, and Nicky Hopkins on piano. Stylistically, it was very advanced for its time, showing off Beck's penchant for cutting-edge experimentation.
