Beck got his start in the Yardbirds, a group that also boasted the one-time membership of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. Beck experimented with electronic effects and played the snarling, distorted solo on the wonderful "Heart Full of Soul." After leaving the Yardbirds he started the Jeff Beck Group, along with future solo star Rod Stewart on vocals and eventual Rolling Stone Ron Wood on bass. The band played electrifying Blues Rock -- Stewart's mighty voice was a perfect match for Beck's over-the-top, Buddy Guy-influenced guitar attack. Beck continued to grow as a stylist and an innovator after the Jeff Beck Group broke up, but he has never had a vocalist anywhere near as good as Stewart. Of his later works, his best are the Fusion type instrumental records that he made in the mid- to late-1970s, the most notable being Blow By Blow.

The Torture Never Stops
Runtime: 1 hr 57 minFrank Zappa's New York Halloween 1981 concerts were filmed Live at The Palladium. This 'thing' entitled "The Torture Never Stops” was created in its entirety by FZ from the original concert production and intended by the Artist as one of 3 Television Specials. This is the longest version of the three - the others, "You Are What You Is" and "Dumb All Over", having actually aired. Halloween was Frank Zappa’s favourite holiday, and New York was the site of Frank Zappa Halloween concerts for years! The billion and a half airings by MTV of the concerts (non-edited) followed on closely from the release of the double album “You Are What You Is” in September of that year on Frank Zappa’s own recently founded and thoroughly independent label, Barking Pumpkin. Much of the set list is drawn from that work. All Frank Zappa shows were unique experiences with Zappa on guitar and baton, leading his band on flights of improvisation and drawing ever more intense performances from them. “The Torture Never Stops” cements Zappa’s reputation as one of the most innovative and challenging composers and performers of the 20th century.
