For over 50 years, Jeff Beck has been a strong part of our music landscape. From The Yardbirds, his own bands, and a series of solo albums, he has left behind an immeasurable imprint on the whole of Rock and Roll. And still, he produces a fiery range of talent. Just a little over a year ago, he released a solo album (Loud Hailer). And he’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, once with The Yardbirds, and once individually.
In the summer of 2016, Jeff Beck played at the Hollywood Bowl as one show in a celebration of his 50 years.
On April 6, Rhino will release a 2CD edition of Jeff Beck Live at The Hollywood Bowl. Previously, there has been DVD and BD issues of the show, which featured a wealth of guest performers including Buddy Guy, Steven Tyler, Jan Hammer, Jimmy Hall, Billy Gibbons, and others. Additionally, there were imports (into the US) of CD and LP recordings.
On May 25, Rhino will also re-release a 3LP vinyl edition of Live At The Hollywood Bowl. If you were unable to score imports of these CD and LP editions, this domestic re-release should help you out greatly.
The Beatles held the world in sway in the early ’60s. That was when Rock was in its infancy, just years away from its rebellious period in the later ’60s. During that period, The Beatles played dates in several locations including The Hollywood Bowl, where they sold out dates in both 1964 and 1965. In anticipation of the upcoming Ron Howard Beatles documentary, Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years, Capitol Records and Apple Records will release a selected set of seventeen performance tracks in a collection called Live At The Hollywood Bowl. Of the seventeen available tracks, four have been previously unreleased (see track-list below).
Live At The Hollywood Bowl will be released on CD and in DD formats on September 9. The vinyl edition will be delayed until November 18. The vinyl edition will be pressed on 180g-weight vinyl, and housed in a gatefold sleeve. The CD edition will contain a 24-page booklet with new notes by David Fricke.
