Jeff Beck – Wired
(Epic – EPC 86012, 1976 🇺🇸)
Sometimes fusion is a challenge for me, but when it’s done right - in my opinion with enough melody and a strong helping of restraint - it’s hard to beat. Jeff Beck had his fusion side, but still brought plenty of rock and roll heart to the table. “Come Dancing” is a favorite on this album. Strat on the front, Les Paul on the back; the best of both worlds. This Customatrix mastering and Santa Maria pressing is a hot one, it’s a little noisy, but features plenty of snare snap and as much bass as you’d hope for.
