Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan Play The Yardbirds’ “Jeff’s Boogie” in 1984 | Video

For this week’s flashback video, we head to Honolulu, Hawaii.

That’s where, in 1984, Jeff Beck joined Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble on stage to play an impressive mini-set that included “Jeff’s Boogie,” an instrumental track from the Yardbirds’ 1966 Roger the Engineer album.

In the great-sounding video below, Beck and Vaughan take turns playing the solos in the Cliff Gallup-inspired tune. Jimmie Vaughan was also one of the featured performers that night (I know this because I have an old VHS of this show).

If you’re not familiar with the original Yardbirds version, be sure to check it out; it’s pure vintage Beck.

Note that this action took place five years before Beck and Vaughan’s storied 1989 tour.
