24 Bit Digitally Remastered Version of the Guitar Master's Debut Solo Album from 1968 is also Singer Rod Stewart's First-ever Album-length Lead Vocal Showcase as an Artist. This Album, Along with It's Follow-up "Beck-ola", Are Regarded as Musical Touchstones for Hard Rockers in the Years that Followed. Collaborators on this Album (And Bonus Tracks) Include Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Nicky Hopkins, Aynsley Dunbar and Madeline Bell. Beck's Three Singles "Tallyman", "Love is Blue" and "hi Ho Silver Lining" Are Included in the Bonus Section Along with the Gorgeous Ballad "i've Been Drinking" (B-side on "Love is Blue") which was Omitted from the Original Album. All Tracks were Produced by Mickie Most.
At first glance, the first group effort helmed by guitar god Jeff Beck upon his rocky departure from the Yardbirds has more than a few striking parallels with the debut of fellow ex-Yardbird Jimmy Page's Led Zeppelin. But the blues-rock of the Rod Stewart-fronted Jeff Beck Group's freshman effort far outshines Zep's riff and wail, infusing its guitar heaviness with subtle jazz and R&B shadings that foreshadow much of Beck's later work. Kicking off with a drastic, almost mournful rethink of the Yardbirds staple "Shapes of Things" and veering as far afield as Gershwin's "Ol' Man River," Truth was one of the late 1960s' most promising debuts. The laconic roadhouse booziness of "You Shook Me," the blues standard also covered with shrill abandon on Zeppelin's debut, best points up the stark differences between Beck and Page, making one wonder whether the '70s weren't dominated by the wrong supergroup. --Jerry McCulley --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Cream, Led Zeppilin, Hendrix, The Beatles White Album- Truly the peak of the wave and Jeff Beck was scrapping his way into it like a gunfighter beginning a rampage.
Beck fired Wood on tour but later quickly rehired him as the band lacked the high caliber magic. Ron Wood upped his paygrade and relished his well-earned respect as he jumped back into the tour.
Rod Stewart has a great set of pipes and his voice is rich and powerful. Micky's drumming is...how shall we say? Rather interesting!
