Editorial Reviews

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 and Wired, 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. As a continuation of our highly regarded Jeff Beck Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series, this fine recording is mastered by Joe Reagoso (Jeff Beck, Deep Purple, Yes) at Friday Music Studios and pressed at RTI.

Also for this rare anniversary edition, we will be presenting the original artwork now in a very limited first time gatefold cover featuring all of the art elements you remember from this incredible 1980 career album for Jeff Beck.

Many reviewers have written that while this album is great Jeff Beck, it's not his best. I tend to agree with that, however this album is definately worth the money.
Anyone familiar with the impressive You Had It Coming (Jeff's newest album) is aware that Jeff is stretching out into electronica territory. With "Star Cycle," he seems to have invented the genre 21 years earlier. A constant keyboard loop is played throughout the song as Mr. Beck executes Jan Hammer's melody perfectly as well as throwing in his usual amazing Beckisms during the solo(s). The next two Hammer tracks feature some great emotional playing by Jeff, but the melodies and Hammer solos do not seem to stack up as well. Perhaps the major fault here is There and Back does not seem to stand the test of time as well as other Jeff Beck albums. Nevertheless, one track that has stood the test is "The Pump." It is probably the standout of There and Back, and features great playing by the whole band. "The Golden Road" is a different story though. The track as a whole is not bad, however I seem to cringe everytime I hear the intro. As we move into "Space Boogie," it is probably the right time to mention that Simon Phillips is an awesome drummer on this album. Simon shines on this track, as does Jeff. The closing track, "The Final Peace," is worth honorable mention. This song features some of Jeff's most emotion playing and is considered by many to be the big brother of Guitar Shop's "Where Were You."
There and Back, while not Jeff Beck's best, is worth your money. You will not be disappointed.

I got this album on vinyl, and on the first spin I was like "okay, well this is good" but didnt listen to it again for quite a while. The next time I heard it, as if by some delayed reaction, I thought "damn, this is AWESOME!". Jeff's guitar playing has the perfect blend of technique/feel/phrasing, but you expect that on even the weakest Jeff Beck album (not that any of his albums could be described as "weak"), brilliant playing is a given. But here, the leads, the melodies and the backing musicians are just outrageous! Its hard to pick favourite tracks, but I really like "Too Much To Lose", "Star Cycle", "The Pump"... Actually, they're all pretty great! This album is definetly up the the standard of "Blow By Blow" or "Wired", in my opinion at least.

Ask anyone who knows me, I'm the biggest Jeff Beck fan around. I'm serious. While There and Back is very good and is one of my favorite albums, it's not one of Jeff's best. It is, however, still worth to buy, because after all--It IS Jeff Beck. Anything with his name on is worth having.
The musicianship, however, is very good. Simon Philips is a great drummer and Tony Hymas does some nice keyboard playing. Jeff's playing is also very good, as always. However, I'm not sure I like all the tunes. The Pump, as stated previously, is the standout tune. Nowadays, it's even better when Jeff performs it live. Star Cycle is quite good, and You Never Know is also pretty strong. However, the other Hammer cut is not as strong as the other two.
Space Boogie and El Becko are fun tunes, and The Final Piece is full of emotion. However, some of the others sound a little too cheesy. Maybe it's the production sound, but it just doesn't sit with me.
Overall, this is worth buying, because Jeff Beck is the greatest guitarist ever, and his playing on most of There and Back is no exception. A good album...but not his best. For his best, check out You Had It Coming (2001), Guitar Shop (1989), Blow by Blow (1975), and Wired (1976).

I agree with the other reviewer. Beck was definitely at his peak here, especially in all of his collaboration efforts with Jan Hammer. Hammer plays drums and keyboards on the first track. Simon Philips is awesome in his double-bass drum technique in the Boogie number. The Final Peace number predates some of the awesome echoplex guitar work that makes Steve Vai famous. As another drummer reviewing this album, this is Beck's BEST all-around effort; EVERYONE is in top form!

This is an all-instrumental effort from the early-80's, a radically different, refreshing change from one of the world's most talented, under-rated guitarists. The concept is a Space Age sound, an interesting mix of rock and jazz, which he pulled off tremendously well. All of the songs are great, and they enabled him to display his talents to the hilt. I don't miss the singing at all. The instruments are very crisp, with lots of bass and drum. It's the kind of album that you pump up the volume and let it go while you're on the road.

If you buy this, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!!

This has to be one of the best sleeper Rock/Fusion albums to date. I saw this group perform the album live at the Philadelphia Spectrum on October 8th 1980...of the hundreds of concerts that I have seen, the There and Back performance which include an amazing performance from a 23 year old drumming sensation Simon Phillips has to be in my top 5 along with Van Halen opening for Black Sabbath in 1978...I highly recommend getting "There and Back" you will not be disappointed.
