What We’re Listening To

Loud Hailer by Jeff Beck

Released last year, this is a great contemporary feeling record from one the original “rock guitar geniuses”.  He is playing some of the best guitar of his life at age 72 and reminds me of some of the work on Wired and Blow by Blow. He has teamed up with a couple of great female vocalists that give this record some extra punch. His lyrics on this album do tend to rage a bit political, but all is forgiven when you listen to his guitar licks.
