Other guests on the album include Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski.</p> <p>Since I'm a Beck completist — someone who buys every available recording featuring Beck's guitar work (It's a disease) — I guess I'll be downloading a LeAnn Rimes song on June 4, something I honestly didn't see coming. </p> <p>However, this collaboration shouldn't come as a complete surprise. In recent years, Beck has appeared on albums by Cyndi Lauper, Joss Stone and Beth Hart, to name just a few. And, of course, he's recorded and/or performed with Imelda May, Rhonda Smith, Olivia Safe, Tal Wilkenfeld, Jennifer Batten, etc.</p> <p>Here are a few examples of Beck's recent work with the ladies:</p> <p><strong>... with Tal Wilkenfeld ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/blp7hPFaIfU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Joss Stone ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bunNRu4mBbY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Rhonda Smith ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UkWb07iDgqY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Jennifer Batten ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/6v5klBLZeYA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Beth Hart ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/fALdOkf_eCM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Imelda May ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/EAUAAn46ji0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Joss Stone again ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Zz8h3MVa2l8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Imelda May again ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/CG8L9EOm1Ao" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>... with Cyndi Lauper ...</strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/yRvKcktaCNA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-additional-content"><legend>Additional Content</legend><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-related-artist"> <div class="field-label"><p><strong>Related Artist:</strong>&nbsp;<p></div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/jeff-beck">Jeff Beck</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.guitarworld.com/jeff-beck-featured-new-leann-rimes-album-spitfire#comments Beth Hart Jeff Beck Rhonda Smith Tal Wilkenfeld Blogs News Fri, 17 May 2013 20:36:46 +0000 Damian Fanelli 18395 at http://www.guitarworld.com
