Return To Forever


Jazz Rock/Fusion

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars The only recording I have of this now is a cassette taken off my scratchy, abused and overplayed vinyl copy.

If I remember rightly I saw them performing this on the UK TV Programme "The Old Grey Whistle Test" and was completely blown away. I guess it was my first experience of jazz/rock.

Nowadays I feel some of the playing is there simply to display their virtuosity (and I feel Al DiMeola is the main culprit with a lot of fast runs up and down scales). However for the most part I love it. Stanley Clarke is particularly stunning on the double bass.

I still listen to it and it's on the ever-expanding list ofvinyl albums I intend to replace one of these days. Til then it'll get played pretty regularly on cassette
