Song Of The Day: Jeff Beck – “Freeway Jam” (1975)

On this day in 1975 Jeff Beck released his landmark album Blow By Blow, from which this relentless piece of Jazz-Rock magic was taken. Back then the Rock Revolution was still fresh, and artists and audiences alike seemed more adventurous then they are today, not batting an eye when a major act released an instrumental album like this. What elevates this work into legendary status was the fact it was produced by “Fifth Beatle” George Martin, whose impeccable audio sculpting brought the best out of Beck, and it still sounds like he’s performing right there in your living room, or wherever you are listening to it.
