Jeff Beck released his “Blow By Blow” album on March 30, 1975 (some sources say March 29). It was his seventh album and recorded in October 1974. It was an instrumental record and the first released under his name alone.
After the dissolution of his power trio in the spring of 1974, Jeff took time for session work with other groups. During this period, he decided to record an all-instrumental album, bringing back keyboardist Max Middleton from the second Jeff Beck Group and hiring George Martin to produce. Carmine Appice, who played with Beck in @Beck, Bogert & Appice was involved in the writing and recording process of “Blow By Blow”, but his parts were edited out after a dispute with Beck’s management.
Was anyone surprised that Jeff did an instrumental LP when you first heard it?
Happy 43rd Birthday to “Blow By Blow”!!!
