1 Edison 7 months ago In 1980 I was working retail in a record store in Joliet, Illinois. I was 19 at the time, and had been playing guitar for just a few years. Of course it was a dream gig, even though it paid little more than minimum wage. We got to listen to music all day while we stocked the bins and served customers.The one provision regarding any in-store music played, was that it had to be a relatively new release, as a way of staying current and promoting the album. That wasn't terrible, considering some of the great music coming out during my tenure there.One of the LPs that I had in heavy rotation upon its release was Jeff Beck's 'There & Back', which had collaborative input from keyboardist Jan Hammer. I wasn't way into Beck's music then, but I knew it was a departure from his earlier work.The opening track grabbed me immediately though, and I became a fan.Cut to present day;Beck has been playing some gigs at the Hollywood Bowl in recent years, celebrating his 50th in music. He seemed in good spirits during this number, having some fun with his old friend and collaborator; Jan in revisiting that opening track from the aforementioned 'There & Back'. It's worth noting Beck's reaction to his drummer's busy fill at the 2:44 mark. Pretty priceless.
