Hot Rods, man! Jeff fractures his skull in a nasty car accident on Nov 5 (69). That put his new group BBA on hold, so Tim & Carmine went and formed Cactus in the meantime. The three would get back together in 72. Earlier, in July 69, Jeff did record with ¾C of The Fudge, you know, things go better...

Into The Stratosphere

An electrifying album by the best guitartist to emerge from The Yardbirds, Jeff has created his own unique musical path. After he broke up the second Jeff Beck Group (one more album followed Rough And Ready), he joined up with a couple of Long Islanders for sludge rock—the less said about BBA, the better.

Blow By Blow was his triumphant return to vinyl. Produced by the legendary George Martin, this album of searing and soaring guitar work is a classic melding of rock, jazz, and space.
