For anyone looking for a great sounding pressing for this album (and there are apparently many hum-drum or not so good ones out there, including some original pressings) -- this one gets my vote. Fantastic clarity across all instruments, full frequency spectrum, plenty of great bottom-end. You'll hear some of the original recording flaws here or there, but those are present in all pressings. This one is really good -- and for those into this genre of late-60's blues-based rock, it's a great little slice of history, and you can see how guys like Beck and Jimmy Page were really feeding off of each other (others might argue more like stealing from each other). Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Keith Moon, Ron Wood, and obviously Rod Stewart all make great contributions here - just a few months later Jimmy and JPJ would go off and listen to an unknown singer named Robert Plant and his friend, drummer John Bonham and decide they had the perfect ensemble for a new band....Led Zeppelin. And of course Jeff is already planting the seeds for his quirky unique awesomeness here (that many guitarists cite as equally influential as Hendrix or Page from this period) - glad to have it in my collection, and again, this is a solid pressing (and you'll probably have a great chance, like me, to find a NM- copy over an original pressing from '68) for under $10.

I believe this is the version I have, back cover has "Stereo-BN 26413" in the upper right, rather than "BXN...". Blue Epic labels etc. My runout numbers show:
Side 1: XSB137816-1AJ (stamped)
Side 2: XSB137817-1AA (stamped) 1 T (etched) then a stamped C and etched 8 on the opposite side.

The runouts on my copy read as follows:

Side 1 - G1 P XSB 137816 G1A CBS GA Chet B (all etched)
Side 2 - P XSB 137817 G1B Anna (all etched)

All other identifiers on jacket & record match what is listed for this pressing.

There aren't many UK mono lp's issued after 1967 that weren't stereo folddowns but this is one of them. Almost every track is superior in mono, particularly Shapes Of Things and Superstitious. Bolero is the UK 45 mix with extended ending. A great great album with a great dedicated mono mix

Can anyone confirm this US mono promo mix is a stereo folddown and not the true mono mix that was issued in the UK?

How are there no comments on this mono version cut at Cohearent by Kevin Gray?! Quiet, flat pressing with nice dynamic range. Deep, spacious, and raw mono sound best played LOUD!

What can you say about this album, I loved every cut. Just something about Beck's playing and choice of tunes for this album was outstanding. Check out the bridge solo on "Rockin' Me Baby", the mood of "Morning Dew", the energy of "Beck's Bolero". A superb album. Had to see them on back to back nights when they came to Detroit's Grande Ballroom (to include Nicky Hopkins) on piano.

I actually attended one of their earliest concerts at the Fillmore East
I am 70, and I really still enjoy listening to this historic album.
Even with the added tracks on the CD..............It still plays well

Should this be considered produced by the Jeff Beck Group (and listed as such on Discogs), and not just Jeff Beck?
