Some truth in this although BX's Percy Jones did take the electric bass guitar crown away from Jaco Pastorius in jazz polls  on a couple of occasions in the 70's.  Personally I find Romantic Warrior is the easy way into jazz rock fusion (but ultimately is one of the least satifactory - give me Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy), being one of the closest to straight instrumental prog rock - which may have been RTF's intention. If you want Brand X with excellent musicianship and more of a musical challenge, check out son of Brand X: Tunnels (with Jones - and  Goodsall often guesting) e.g. the aptly named Progressivity
The best eclectic music on the Web,8-11pm BST/GMT THURS.

Romantic Warrior by far! But UB is a very good album, just that RTF rules for me.

Unorthodox Behaviour by a mile for me, although I have to say I much prefer Masques to either of these.
Would you like to watch TV, or get between the sheets, or contemplate the silent freeway, would you like something to eat?
