JEFF BECK GROUP : ROUGH AND READY [1971]

Αφού διέλυσε το προηγούμενο σχήμα, ματαιώνοντας τη συμμετοχή του στο Woodstock… ο άνθρωπός μας σχηματίζει το δεύτερο Jeff Beck Group, και κυκλοφορεί το Rough And Ready, με πιο soul-jazz προσέγγιση και υπογράφοντας ο ίδιος τις περισσότερες συνθέσεις. Σε πείσμα όσων έχουν γραφτεί από διάφορους “experts”, το άλμπουμ είναι από τα καλύτερά του.
Στη θέση του Rod Stewart ο θαυμάσιος
Bobby Tench.

After disbanding the previous scheme, thwarting their participation in Woodstock… our man forms the second
Jeff Beck Group and releases Rough And Ready, with a more soul-jazz approach, and signing most of the compositions himself.
In spite of what various “experts” have written, the album is one of his best.
The excellent
Bobby Tench is Rod Stewart’s replacement.

People fight for the basic right to choose
To live a life we don’t intend to lose,
The time has come when we must all decide
To end our evil ways or let the whole world slide
Who would of thought
That wars were fought to free our nation
We must make the changes
From the basic situation
Ooh yeah yeah
Listen people
It’s all right
When you’ve fought on foreign soil.
Not your very own
‘Cause you don’t want it destroyed
We are keepin’ our own identity
We must look around
For ideas to be real
So many of the people have been justified.
We must face the truth
‘Cause there ain’t no real place to hide.
Listen people
If it’s true that no one really cares
We’ve got to sacrifice through the changing years
Do the things we feel no matter most of all
So let the people yeah
Sweet music is our home
Please realize happiness is your conviction
You’ll find in people all kinds of good reaction


Jody these are the reasons why
The backyard we played in won’t let a child die
Umm Jody these are the reasons why
The schoolyard we laughed in won’t let us pass it by
Ooh I was so sad when you fell off the wall
You were so glad ’cause you laughed at us all
We could be almost anything that we want to be
Me away and you away, coming in from the sea
Sometimes I was a mountain or a seagull by the shore
Thanks God, my memory will live for ever more
Jody our sun is going down today
But Jody the days are not real
You know our sun I said is, is going down today yeah
Jody the days are not real, no no no
Oh I was so sad when you fell off the wall
You were so glad ’cause you laughed at us all
We could be almost anything that we want to be
Me away and you away, coming in from the sea
Sometimes I was a mountain or a seagull by the shore
Thanks God, my memory will live for ever more
