The legendary rock trio Beck, Bogart & Apis combined Jeff Beck with Tim Bogart and Carmine Apis of Vanilla Fudge and Cactus to form the legendary rock trio Beck, Bogart & Apis. The band's brief two-year existence from 1972 to 1974 has been etched in the annals of music history as a dazzling, fleeting brilliance and a trail that continues to illuminate the era.
Before his death in January of this year, the legendary guitarist Jeff Beck recorded live with drummer/singer Carmine Appice and bassist/singer Tim Bogart in the three-piece super band Beck, Bogart & Appice, which he formed in 1972. The live recordings of two shows in Japan in 1973 and one of the band's last performances in London the following year, both rare live recordings, beautifully capture the fusion of energy emitted by these three short-lived but still hugely influential musicians. The band's last live performance in London in 1973. Now Beck Bogart & Apis are releasing a new box set, "Live in Japan 1973/Live in London 1974," which compiles the live recordings from the Osaka show in 1973 and the London show in 1974. This work will be released in two forms: a 4-CD set and a 4-CD analog set.
Live in Japan 1973/Live in London 1974" is dedicated to Jeff Beck, who passed away in 2023, and Tim Bogart, who passed away in 2021, and was also involved in the production of the album. The box set includes four discs of "Live in Japan 1973" and "Live in London 1974," as well as memorabilia, rare photos, and a lengthy liner notes by Bruce Pilato, music journalist and their manager, detailing the band's history. The set also includes a gorgeous booklet with memorabilia, rare photos, and lengthy liner notes by Bruce Pilato, music journalist and manager of the band, as well as a replica of the band's poster.
The live recordings, mixed by Jeff Beck and Carmine Appice for this box set, are based on the original multi-tracks that have sat in Jeff Beck's archives for nearly 50 years, and are of such high quality that they have eclipsed the many low-quality bootleg recordings that Beck had expressed dislike for. Recorded at the Kosei-Nenkin Kaikan in Osaka on May 18 and 19, 1973, this is the first official US release of the recordings, which were previously released in Japan only a few months after the show in Japan. The live recording at the Rainbow Theatre in London on January 26, 1974 is also a very rare and previously unreleased live recording, the first time it has been released in its complete form as an official live album.
Live in Japan 1973" was recorded just a few months after the release of Beck Bogart & Apis' self-titled debut album. The powerful live performance, which covers almost all of the songs on the debut album, including "Superstition," "Lady," and "Livin' Alone," is recorded in an impressive live soundtrack that seems to release the band's bare energy as music. The album also includes a trio performance of the Yardbirds' song "Jeff's Boogie" and Jeff Beck Group songs such as "Morning Dew" and "Going Down".
◆"Live in London 1974" is a live recording made eight months after the Japan tour, just before the band broke up. At this London show, the band performed live songs such as "Satisfied", "Jizz With" and "Solid Lifter", which were to be included on their second studio album, which was never completed.
Carmine Appice, 50 years after the band was formed, describes the time as "a blink of an eye. We were able to accomplish a lot from an artistic standpoint back then, but it was over too soon... The fact that the three of us played together was really great. Jeff, Tim, and I had a tremendous band together. But before we realized it, it was all over."
