A killer debut! Following his departure from the Yardbirds, legendary guitar visionary Jeff Beck hit the ground running with this seminal 1968 LP, featuring Rod Stewart on vocals, Ron Wood on bass and Micky Waller on drums. In addition to Beck's evolution as guitarist and bandleader, Truth helped to establish the hard-rock format that would be adopted by Led Zeppelin and countless subsequent bands. Sundazed's new vinyl edition, mastered from the original analog tapes, features the album's unique and ultra-rare UK mono mix, and is pressed on pristine high-definition vinyl with complete original cover art. "Despite being the premiere of heavy metal, Jeff Beck's Truth has never quite carried its reputation the way the early albums by Led Zeppelin did, or even Cream's two most popular LPs, mostly as a result of the erratic nature of the guitarist's subsequent work. Time has muted some of its daring, radical nature, elements of which were appropriated by practically every metal band (and most arena rock bands) that followed. Truth was almost as groundbreaking and influential a record as the first Beatles, Rolling Stones, or Who albums. Its attributes weren't all new -- Cream and Jimi Hendrix had been moving in similar directions -- but the combination was: the wailing, heart-stoppingly dramatic vocalizing by Rod Stewart, the thunderous rhythm section of Ron Wood's bass and Mickey Waller's drums, and Beck's blistering lead guitar, which sounds like his amp is turned up to 13 and ready to short out." -- Bruce Eder,
