|JEFF BECK AND JAN HAMMER LIVE Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP
The tour for live recordings of The Jeff Beck With The Jan Hammer Group - Live began in June 1976 and ended in February 1977, with 117 shows performed. Not all precise dates and locations are given for the live recordings which are included here.
Jeff Beck toured to promote Wired, backed a jazz fusion Group led by synthesizer player Jan Hammer. This live album combines songs from Blow by Blow [MOVLP107] and Wired [MOVLP133]. Songs like "Freeway Jam", "She's a Woman", and "Scatterbrain" are on the album.
A&R man Tom Werman suggests that the date at the Astor Theater in Reading yielded the best performances. Jeff Beck mixed this along with other recordings at Allen Toussaint's studio in New Orleans. The songs are, later on, also mixed by Dennis Weinreich at Scorpio Sound Studios in London, England.
The album was on peak 11 in the Jazz Albums in 1977. During the same year, it was placed 23 in the Billboard 200.
