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.

All the circulating versions are coming from the same recording more or less accelerated. All have an average quality and are lossless. I kept the one claiming to come from a 1st generation and posted in 2006 on Dimedeadozen by Mesquite (see the doc file): thanks a lot to Mesquite!
I declicked the recording, equilibrated the channels (+15% to the right channel),
I deleted little defaults in ‘Rock My Plimsoul’ at 5’12, 5’16 5’20 and in ‘Shapes Of Things’ at 4’47.
Also this recording ran too fast. A comparison with the Los Angeles shows from July showed that it had to be decelerated by around 6%.
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
