J is for... Jeff Beck
Guitarist Jeff Beck didn’t spend long in the ranks of The Yardbirds but he made a huge impression on his fellow guitar players. His playing on Evil Hearted You is especially brilliant. Highlights are the crushing power chord intro and the emotive slide solo. Listen to the uptempo middle section and you’ll hear a lightning fast rockabilly lick in the style of Cliff Gallup of Gene Vincent And His Blue Caps - Beck is a huge Gallup fan.
Beck performed Evil Hearted You live with The White Stripes in 2002. The Pixies also recorded the song with Spanish lyrics.
J is also for... Jump, Jive & Harmonize
That’s Jump, Jive & Harmonize by The Fleshtones. The song was originally recorded by legendary '60s Chicano band Thee Midniters. The Fleshtones were formed in New York in 1976 and have been playing garage rock ever since.
