JEFF BECK – Second Highly Influential (Solo) LP ‘WIRED’ Released 45 Years Ago

7 May 2021

Artist: JEFF BECK

Album: WIRED
Released: 1 May 1976 – 45 years ago

AllMusic/Mark Kirschenmann: “‘Wired’ contains some of the best jazz-rock
fusion of the period. ‘Wired’ is generally more muscular, albeit less-unique than
its predecessor, ‘Blow by Blow’… Within a two-year span, the twin towers ‘Blow by
Blow’ and ‘Wired’ set a standard for instrumental rock that even Beck has found
difficult to match. On Wired, with first-rate material and collaborators on hand,
one of rock’s most compelling guitarists is in top form.”
