POST: RON WOOD with JEFF BECK GROUP Series Vol 14 - 03 May 1969 - N.Y.C.
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.

For this shows we have two versions coming from the same recording. Nzb’s version was lossy, so I used ‘Jailhouse The Fillmore’.
Here is what I did: I declicked the recording, equilibrated the channels (+10% to the right channel), refocused the sound and reworked the transitions between the tracks so that they start with the songs now.
Also this recording ran too slowly. A comparison with the Boston shows showed that it had to be accelerated by +4%.
Note that this recording circulates with the additional track ‘Something Coming On’ which is Joe Cocker with his band but without the Jeff Beck Group so we did not include it here.
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
