Review by Slartibartfast
4 stars Holy crap that was a pain in the ass to add. I had to manually type in all the musician information and manually add the time info. I'd been bitching about getting this artist added for a while, so what the heck. The Go sessions are a wonderful mixture of musicians from the various genres of progressive music. Whoever added this artist must of had a really hard time picking a sub-genre to put Yamashta in. I'd say he's more progressive electronic. The CD booklet says "There ae echoes of soul, jazz-rock, and bozza nova here." "The theme of Go is change and polarity - fantasy and reality, death and re-birth, things changing to opposites".

This was a prog supergroup. Steve Winwood, Al DiMeola, Klause Schultze Michael Shrieve, all united by a Japanese artist, say no more. Also of note, Pat Thrall on guitar. He was in a band called Automatic Man with Shrieve around the same time as Go, that should be listed on this for the first album. I haven't heard the second one in a long time, but as I recall it was a dud.

The first two LPs (it was actually three vinyls altogether) far outshine the last one called Go Too. As I was entering the information, I was really impressed by the synthesizer credits. Really state of the art gear for the mid '70's.

Each for the first two, each LP side consisted of a several songs played as a continuous piece.

Go is a studio album and has more musicians some classical musicians.

Go - Live From Paris has a more streamlined group of musicians, but all the big names are there. There's some new parts and some of the parts from Go weren't included.

Go Too, still has all the big names, but suffers from a case of popitis, not unlike what was afflicting many a good progressive artist in the late '70's/early '80's.

Whoever added this artist must of had a really hard time picking a sub-genre

Go Too drags down the rating a little but not too much since the first two are essential.

If you're a fan of any of the big names and you haven't heard Go and particularly if you're a keyboard/synthesizer nut like myself, you'll probably like this one a lot. If you already know Go and were wondering when they'd get around to releasing the dang thing on CD, "the time is here".

4 stars This compilation is where you should look for your dose of 'Go.' Including both studio albums ('Go,' 'Go Too') and the 'Live from Paris' release, it's comprehensive and comes at a great price, generally imported from Raven Records in Australia, or second hand online. The best thing about the co ... (read more)

4 stars When I caught wind of the Go Live.. In Paris, 1976, I was enamored with the quality of sound being represented at this concert. I only became aware of the re-issue on CD not too long ago, so I cannot attest to the validity concerning sound quality, but I will say that Stomu Yamashta assembled a f ... (read more)
