4 stars 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. Beck was playing some cool guitar. I like the way he and Jan Hammer responded to each other.

I think my favorite on "There and Back" is "The Final Peace." It is very moody and mysterious. It is such an unusual tune that is extremely different than the rest of the recording. It sounds so beautiful!

Another favorite is "Too Much To Lose." Jeff does some nice easy to follow guitar parts. It is very good.

"The Pump is a kicker to be sure. It was a cool way to end side one.

I can't find any bad tunes that I didn't enjoy on this. Other than "The Golden Road" being a little long, I really enjoyed the whole project to no end. There isn't much as far as any prog going on here, but this is definitely good listening. I give it 4 stars.
