Among the musicians here, we find one of the last noticeable appearances of Ainsley Dunbar, after his quitting the Journey upon musical difference, but also cultural ones being the only UK member and his antics not pleasing Steve "Arse" Perry Star Cycle is a typical start to a late 70's Beck album with the usual Jan Hammer-type of keyboard intervention and somehow, you can almost hear the Miami Vice theme that Hammer will make a fortune on much later in the decade.
The following and closing side A The Pump is a very pedestrian affair beat-wise anyway where Jeff soars easily to the skies, brushing up the clouds. El Becko is probably the album's best known track, not only because of its superb, but because it was the one with the hardest riff around, adding a bit of beef to an album needing it. Indeed with the following Golden Road, there is a total lack of energy and is way too lame to belong here: it's probably a remnant of the BBB era that Sir George Martin forgot to put on his atrocious arrangements on, but GR ends better than it started.
Finishing the album with a Space Boogie, that was obviously meant as a wink to his Freeway Jam, the album ends on the slow spacey Final Peace, where Jeff pretty well improvises over quiet keyboards space layers. As with "Wired", side two opens with an uptempo rock-oriented track.
A three star rating is fair for this album; Jeff Beck fans will likely gain a lot more from it but that should be expected. For anyone who isn't a devout follower they'll hear some pleasant jazz fusion and a couple of high quality but not necessarily memorable moments. I owned a cassette copy of this album and I literally played it so much that I wore the tape out. I was starting to get into instrumental music at the time and this record filled the bill.
At the time, this music sounded pretty spacy in some places and it was definitely original. Also, Mr. Some folks would say that Blow By Blow was Jeff's greatest acheivement, or maybe even Wired, but not me. There And Back is where Beck was fully confident, and masterful, as he headed once again into the jazz-fusion realm.
Jan Hammer is back, and these two virtuosos play off each other w Jeff Beck blazes his way through this jam packed guitar album. You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.
