JEFF BECK GROUP
(1967 - 1969)
This series is dedicated to the first version of the Jeff Beck Group, the one that included Ron Wood in its line-up.
It is especially dedicated to the late Jeff Beck who passed away on January 10, 2023.
A big thank you to all the people who recorded these shows and who shared them and to my two accomplices nzb and Jaap (Stonesmuziekfan) who gave me the benefit of their versions of these shows and their advice and support ... and therefore without whom this project would not have been possible.

The recording for this show appeared on several bootlegs (see the docs file) and was attributed either to Dallas and to Miami (16th November).
'Rice Pudding' is announced here as 'Mother’s Old Rice Pudding' and Rod Stewart specifies that it is the first time ever that they will play this title live. We can therefore conclude that the show was produced before July 26th and therefore eliminate the Miami date (of which we finally have no recording).
From the various versions we have I chose ‘Tour De Force’ (CS71768) because it’s in better sound and the most complete recording.
I equilibrated the channels and refocused them, I declicked the recording and deleted microgaps between the tracks and, as usual, I reworked the transitions between the tracks that now start with the song.
All the infos are taken from ‘Woodworks’ by Nico Zentgraf: the database devoted to Ronnie Wood's work with The Birds, Jeff Beck Group, Faces and many others before joining The Rolling Stones. [www.nzentgraf.de
