|Recorded over the course of several nights during a 2007 stint at Ronnie Scott's legendary London venue, Jeff Beck can be heard here unleashing a torrent of six-string fury. Revisiting some of his classic albums for such songs as "Beck's Bolero" and "Led Boots," he easily matches the energy of the original cuts despite the difference in decades, and he brings his interpretive powers fully to the fore when delivering his version of the Beatles' "A Day in the Life."|

- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Stoked by an aggressive rhythm section blasting fusillades at him from all angles, Beck responds with his slurred, slippery, slimy distorted howl at its magisterial best."
- "Beck has crafted a singular sub-genre anchored in rock, blues, jazz and reggae. In 2007, he gave an overview at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London with keyboardist Jason Rebello, bassist Tal Wilkenfeld and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta."
- 5 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e proves as capable of serenity as he does of severe dissonance on a journey down many familiar avenues of an ever-intriguing professional career."
