” I like Clapton’s opening comment at 0:12 “If there was a coin we could be like,you know,I could be on one side and he could be on the other”. Jeff Beck should have the words “Talent Scout” in his resume because he knew great talent when he saw it, heard it or performed with them. Les Paul,Cliff Gallup,B.B. King,Bo Diddley,Scotty Moore,Little Richard,Jerry Lee Lewis,Chuck Berry,Matt Murphy Paul Burlison,Buddy Guy,Earl Hooker,James Burton,Steve Cropper,Hank Marvin,Ian Stewart,Hendrix,Clapton,Page,Townsend,Rod Stewart,Ron Wood,Billy Gibbons,John McLaughlin,Stevie Wonder,Stanley Clarke,Jan Hammer,Carlos Santana,David Gilmour,Roger Waters,Aynsley Dunbar,Cozy Powell,Jack Bruce,Tim Bogert,Carmine Appice,Buddy Miles,Paul McCartney are just a few of many more to add.
The opening song “Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers” was written by Stevie Wonder and was voted the number 1 most beautiful instrumental of All Time. Jeff dedicated that song to Roy Buchanan on his landmark 1975 LP “Blow by Blow”. Since it was Jeff Beck who turned me onto Roy Buchanan’s music (I have almost every recording by him starting back from 1957) so I felt that I had to add,what I think is, Roy’s most beautiful song as a follow up. This Roy Buchanan song is an instrumental version of “The Messiah Will Come Again” recorded live in Chicago around 1985. Roy was known as “The World’s Greatest Unknown Guitarist” and there is a great book about him titled “American Axe”http://www.amazon.com/Roy-Buchanan-Am…
Buy it if you want to learn more about this great guitarist.

6:13 The Messiah Will Come Again (I love how this song starts off slow then by the end it’s smoking hot. I once listened to this song 13 times in a row and it still gives me the goose bumps when ever I hear those pinched harmonics and Flash Guitar runs.
