‘Flash’ is the fourth studio album by guitarist Jeff Beck originally released in July 1985 through Epic Records. It reached No 39 on the U S Billboard 200 chart. Two singles also charted the first being a reunion with singer Rod Stewart for a cover of ‘People Get Ready’ and the second single ‘Gets Us All in the End’. The instrumental ‘Escape’ even went on to win the award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the 1986 Grammys which was to be Beck’s first of many such awards. The album is unique for Beck in that it is composed mainly of vocal songs save for two instrumentals in the form of the earlier mentioned ‘Escape’ and ‘You Know We Know’ (written by his longtime collaborators Jan Hammer and Tony Hymas respectively). Designed to be a foray into pop music in order to capitalize on that sound ‘Flash’ was produced by Nile Rodgers and Arthur Baker. The original CD edition of ‘Flash’ included two bonus tracks ‘Nighthawks’ and ‘Back on the Streets’ which were originally released as B-sides.
