There and Back, found Jeff Beck moving from old keyboard partner Jan Hammer (three tracks) to new one Tony Hymas (five), which turned out to be the difference between competition and support. If it were anybody else, you'd say that this was a transitional album, but this was the only studio album Beck released between 1976 and 1985.
THERE AND BACK is probably his most underrated and oft-overlooked work. Beck's guitar playing is still exceptional, and his six-string skills again take center stage on this third vocal-less album in a row. "The Pump" is an absolute Beck classic, while Beck's muscular playing on "El Becko," "Space Boogie," and "The Final Peace" is simply awesome. Another key ingredient to the album's success is the superb drumming of session ace Simon Philips, especially on the aforementioned "Space Boogie."

Blow By Blow is a solo album by British electric guitarist Jeff Beck. The Epic Records release, recorded in October 1974, was released in 1975. 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.
Powerful jazz-rock fusion with a touch of funk, WIRED is Beck's follow-up to the popular BLOW BY BLOW. Extending on the blues breakthroughs he made with the Yardbirds, Beck's style had by this time crystalized into something lyric and soaring, showing the influence of John McLaughlin and The Mahavishnu Orchestra, while retaining the slightly manic edge that has remained his trademark.
