An attempt to listen to an album a day. Each album is connected to the prior album via musician or production staff. I will then give it a score based on my own 5 D's scale. Inspiration for all and I hope my adventure sparks that musical fire in all of you. Love your favorite music and have an open mind to enjoy different styles of music. Appreciate whole albums as a piece of art and have fun. Rock on.

Jeff Beck: There And Back (Day 21 of Album: 365 Mkll)
(Connection to previous album: Jeff Beck played on Private Dancer and yeah, he played on his solo album There and Back)
I'm thankful I was able to get Jeff Beck in this thing so soon after his passing. Probably my number 1/2/3 favorite guitar player. Arguably the best guitar player ever.
This was an album I bought in high school. After I found out that Beck had this fusion era, I looked around magazines and saw that this record has Simon Phillips drumming. Needless to say, I was floored.
30 plus years later, I figure out Ken Scott produced it and I look at his credits...FUHK!!!!! I can go in any direction for my next record and totally changed what I was gonna do for my next record. Ken Scott is a super legend.
