Whenever Jeff Beck releases an album, it’s always a musical event. As the third in a trilogy of multifaceted career defining albums, preceded by Blow By Blow (Friday Music) and Wired (Friday Music), the iconic guitarist unleashed one of the most popular albums in his ever enduring catalog with 1980’s There And Back. This masterwork unites the guitar hero with his powerful team of world class musicians, Jan Hammer (keyboards), Simon Phillips(drums), Tony Hymas (keyboards) and Mo Foster (bass). The brilliant guitar shredder and his quartet of amazing master musicians truly throw down some of his classiest and hardest driving repertoire for this Jeff Beck and Ken Scott (David Bowie/Kansas/Supertramp) production. The album begins with the rhythmic rocker Star Cycle. The tune finds Jeff Beck and Jam Hammer dueling on some very solid power riffs making this a great opening track for the listener. The soulful vibe of Too Much To Lose has the tremendous voicing of Jeff’s guitar with Tony Hymas’ fine keyboard elements and Simon Phillips’ wonderful drum work throughout.
Always an astute bluesman, The Pump retains a solid groove which allows Jeff Beck to power away with some very intricate fret work, making this album the classic that it is. Hard rock fusion continues with more classics like You Never Know, El Becko and Space Boogie. These and his jazz rock leaning hits like The Golden Road and The Final Peace truly reward his fans with one of the finest albums in his multiplatinum decade career! It is with much honor to announce the limited edition 180 Gram Audiophile release of Jeff Beck’s classic There And Back.
