Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page
"Guitar Boogie" (Vinyl)

This is an odd album.  The UK's three most important and influential figures of rock guitar playing all joined forces to create this album of muddled, unfocused blues tunes.

I have the US's Pickwick release of this album.  I liken the music a lot to the album artwork.  It's supposed to be trippy and psychedelic, but at its end its confusing and distracting.

What could have been an earth-moving collection of guitar pyrotechnics ends up being a footnote waaay at the bottom of the pages of each of these guitarists' biographies. And maybe not even there.
