The Best Dylan Covers: Jeff Beck Group – Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You

“Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here with You” is a song written by Bob Dylan from his 1969 album Nashville Skyline. It was the closing song of the album. The song was the third single released from the album.

Jeff Beck Group is the fourth studio album by The Jeff Beck Group and the second album with the line up of Jeff Beck, Bobby Tench, Clive Chaman, Max Middleton and Cozy Powell. The album was produced by Steve Cropper and often referred to as the Orange Album, because of the orange which appears prominently at the top of the front cover. The album has a wonderful song selection with unique arrangements that allows the virtuosity of the players to shine through. Jeff Beck as usual  let his group members shine.  Steve Cropper’s production is sometimes described as sloppy on this album, I don’t hear it. It’s a hidden gem and an underrated classic!

It is a very soulful  album, and it includes this raw and very hones rendition of Bob Dylan’s Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You.

Classic concert: Jeff Beck Performing This Week… Live at Ronnie Scott’s


jeff beck live rs

In November of 2007, legendary guitarist Jeff Beck took to the stage of London’s Ronnie Scott’s, a notorious jazz club with a rich history. Unfortunately, given the size of the club, only a few were lucky enough to see him and his band – Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), Jason Rebello (keyboards) and Tal Wilkenfeld (bass) – perform. Lucky for us it was recorded, and  released on film. This is a  compilation of these concerts of sorts, and I would love to see all seven shows released.

Beck’s series of concerts at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London’s Soho became the must have ticket of 2007 in London.

With a setlist that features classic tracks from across his career, a stunning backing band and special guest appearances by Joss Stone, Imogen Heap and Eric Clapton, this concert film captures for the first time the unique experience of Jeff Beck live in concert.

Highlights: Stratus (shorter than Cobham’s versions but oh so good!),  Tal Wilkenfeld’s bass solo on Wonder’s Cause we’ve ended as lovers and Jeff Beck who shines all through this film, what an incredible musician!

The band:
– Jeff Beck / guitar
– Vinnie Colaiut / drums
– Jason Rebello / keyboards
– Tal Wilkenfeld / bass guitar

Guest artists:
