I was not very familiar with Jeff Beck's early work besides his time with the Yardbirds. It is great to have one of his earliest albums remastered and reissued. The sound is great and the music is fantastic. It is somewhat eye opening to see how good this music is considering it doesn't get much attention these days, nor did it apparently get too much back in the day either. I do hear where Led Zepplin stole a few tricks and ideas for their first few albums. The booklet notes and track annotation are both good; there are a decent number of photos spread throughout, as well. Also, there's a good helping of bonus tracks including the hit non-album single Hi-Ho Silver Linning. I'm somewhat curious as to the reissue of the next Jeff Beck Group album but a little skeptical, too, as I believe the music isn't quite as good. These types of releases, however, should be the norm by which classic albums and those like Truth, which aren't given their due, are reissued. Maybe the reissue will now turn it into a classic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

One of Rod Stewart's Best
Yes, this is a Jeff Beck album but it is the vocal performance of Rod Stewart that makes this such a great album. Rod is the singer throughout the album and he does a truly memorable job with this odd selection of songs. The same is true of the other Beck/Stewart album: Beck-Ola.Was this review helpful?
