"Wired" proves that if it works once, it may work again. Jeff Beck's follow up to 1975's successful instrumental release, "Blow By Blow" feaured the contributions of synthesizer god Jan Hammer, and the two musicians play off of one another brilliantly. The cover of Charlie Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" alone makes this CD an essential, but guitarists will love the riffs and solo spots in "Blue Wind" and "Led Boots" as well. "Wired" and "Blow By Blow" were Beck's one-two fusion punch, and musicians everywhere were influenced by these records for years to come.
