V.A. – Jeffology: A Guitar Chronicle (2015)
“Jeffology : A Guitar Chronicle” is a tribute to Jeff Beck, one of the greatest guitar players in Rock history. An all-star gathering of six-string virtuosos bring their talents to bear on the songs this guitar icon, while the rest of the session musicians is stupendous as well.
The album includes performances by Def Leppard’s Phil Collen & Vivian Campbell, Mick Mars (Mötley Crüe), Toto’s Steve Lukather, Jake E. Lee (Ozzy, Badlands), George Lynch, Mr. Big’s Paul Gilbert, Ratt’s Warren DeMartini and more.
But as said, the rest of the players are great featuring monster drummers Gregg Bissonette or Jay Schellen (Unruly Child), bass master Tony Franklin and John Alderete, and the lead vocals of John Corabi (Mötley Crüe) and Sass Jordan among many others.
“Jeffology : A Guitar Chronicle” is a reissue of this long out of print CD by Cleopatra / Deadline Records, a really fine selection of songs in honor of the legendary, influential English guitarist.
All players involved are top notch, production on all tracks is really good, and the CD nicely packaged / priced.
