On 10 November 2008 Eagle Records are proud to release a sensational live album from Jeff Beck, “Performing This Week… Live At Ronnie Scott’s” [EAGCD396]. This album release features live versions of classic tracks from across Jeff Beck’s stellar career including: “Beck’s Bolero”, “Led Boots”, “Scatterbrain”, “Where Were You”, “Angels (Footsteps)”, “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers” and his now iconic version of “A Day In The Life”.

Jeff Beck is true rock legend, described by The Telegraph as "the first of the great guitar showmen". From his time with the Yardbirds in the sixties, through the Jeff Beck Group and throughout his solo career his unique guitar style and constant desire to explore new musical areas and sounds has won him the admiration of his peers and the adoration of legions of fans. In 2007 Jeff Beck performed a series of concerts at the renowned Ronnie Scott’s club in London. They became the must have ticket of the year with a packed audience every night of the famous and the fans. Jazzwise hailed, "an absolutely jaw-dropping display of the most exciting, imaginative and inspirational jazz-rock guitar witnessed in years." This CD features performances recorded across the different nights and presents the best version of each track. “Performing This Week… Live At Ronnie Scott’s” captures a stunning talent at his best, The Times review of the show lauded, "Perhaps the greatest living guitar virtuoso... Combining astonishing technique with a blissful nuance he exercised an almost supernatural control of his fretboard."

1) Beck’s Bolero, 2) Eternity’s Breath, 3) Stratus 4) Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers, 5) Behind The Veil, 6) You Never Know 7) Nadia, 8) Blast From The East, 9) Led Boots, 10) Angels (Footsteps) 11) Scatterbrain, 12) Goodbye Pork Pie Hat / Bush With The Blues 13) Space Boogie, 14) Big Block, 15) A Day In The Life, 16) Where Were You

London Lite raved about Beck’s ability to create "the kind of visceral, fluid music-making that other guitarists can only dream of”. With a stunning band complementing Jeff Beck perfectly [the full line up was Jeff Beck – guitar, Tal Wilkenfeld – bass, Vinnie Colaiuta – drums, Jason Rebello – keyboards] this is an essential purchase. A DVD (EREDV723) of the Ronnie Scott’s performances, the first ever authorized by Jeff Beck, will be released on Eagle Vision in December.
