Released in 1971, this is 3rd album of The Jeff beck Group, however the first in this particular formation including Max Middleton, Cozy Powell, Clive Chaman and Bob Tench. “Rough and Ready” confirms Jeff Beck‘s comeback after recovering from a near-fatal car accident. Beck wanted to go in a different direction and ended up with less rock and more R&B and jazzy soulfulness. Realizing it is not always necessary to implement vocals, his focus was more on his guitar melodies. Rough guitar playing and upbeat drums make this album a long lost gem, loved by jazz-lovers as well as rock fans!
