"Beck brought in George Martin to produce Blow by Blow, and the result was not only Beck's best album, but Martin's most significant post-Beatles production. Martin wrote the string arrangements for two tracks, 'Scatterbrain' and 'Diamond Dust' and sequenced the album so that its flow seems inevitable. ... In the AP pressing (on 'You Know What I Mean') Beck's chords are more harmonically detailed, and (Phil) Chen's bass sounds cleaner and snappier. ... Beck's guitar lines are far better focused on the new LP. ... It's hard to imagine a better-sounding version of Blow by Blow than these new discs from Analogue Productions." — Joseph Taylor, SoundStage! Hi-Fi, October 2015
1975 was a magical year for Jeff Beck. Already a rock superstar from his groundbreaking guitar work with The Yardbirds, Jeff Beck Group and Beck Bogert & Appice, Beck's Blow By Blow was a total artistic leap into new musical territory which netted the guitar hero massive acclaim.
Produced by the legendary George Martin, Blow By Blow features nine smokin' tracks of instrumental genius as only Jeff Beck could provide. Now Blow By Blow is back bigger and better than ever! We've gone the deluxe Analogue Productions route — remastered from the original analog tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, cut at 45 RPM, plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. Then packaged in deluxe tip-on gatefold jackets from Stoughton Printing. A great title, a brilliant reissue — what could be better?

His best-selling album to date certified Gold in 1976, and was produced by George Martin. Featuring Stevie Wonder on keys. Blow by Blow is Jeff Beck's 1975 solo album and considered one of his best releases among fans and colleagues. Former Yardbirds sideman Chris Dreja had predicted in 1965 that Beck's current sound '...was 1975.' In a glowing review on Allmusic, Mark Kirschenmann said that 'Blow by Blow ranks as one of the premiere recordings in the canon of instrumental rock music.'
As an all-instrumental album it was a surprising commercial success, with a jazz fusion-like approach seldom seen on best-selling lists at the time. It was certified Gold in 1976.
The album was produced by George Martin and recorded at his own AIR studios. Martin also composed string arrangements for two of the tracks, "Scatterbrain" and "Diamond Dust". Stevie Wonder returned the favor of Beck's work on his 1972 LP Talking Book, by playing on "Blow by Blow"and contributing the song "Thelonius".
As a big admirer of fellow guitarist Roy Buchanan, Beck dedicated the track "Cause We've Ended as Lovers" to him.
