"Jeff Beck: A Man For All Seasons"

From MVD Entertainment Group, Sneak Peek the music documentary "Jeff Beck: A Man For All Seasons", available February 10, 2015 on DVD:

" the end of 1964, guitarist Eric Clapton left the 'Yardbirds', a band still searching for their first hit. His replacement was a player of very different capabilities - a 'feedback' technical and sonic pioneer who helped propel the group from their former status as a blues covers act to become one of the most innovative and daring musical collectives working in the UK.

"This film traces Jeff Beck's music and career throughout the 1960's - his formative influences and early groups, his work with The Yardbirds, his brief, bizarre reinvention by producer Mickie Most as a solo pop star, and the first incarnation of the 'Jeff Beck Group', during which Beck played with vocalist Rod Stewart and second guitarist Ron Wood.

"Featuring a plethora of rare performance and studio footage, exclusive interviews, contributions from those who worked with and alongside Beck during this period and a host of other features, all of which combine to make this documentary - the first yet to singularly focus on Beck's career - a legitimate tribute and enthralling history of this often innovative musician, writer and performer..."
