4 stars The first time I knew this band was when my friend played me "The Endless Night" at his player sometime in 1978. It blew my mind!! I like the long keyboard intro by the man that I did'nt know before, Chick Corea. Ghuzz .. Thought he was a Korean. This track is an excellent introduction for me to fusion type of progressive music. I rate this track highly. The entrance of Gayle Moran's voice at this track is really nice! I love this track the first time I listened to it and I kept playing it many times for this track only, not others. I did enjoy it and sometime I sang as Moran was singing. Then I tried to explore further tracks starting with "The Musician". It's a good track as well, especially for jazz lovers. "Do You Ever" is the track where I can enjoy the nice voice of Gayle Moran. Basically I started to enjoy other tracks. My appreciation towards this album grew exponentially when I listened to the "live" version of this album. Excellent! Then I enjoyed this album again ... For those who like jazz-rock fusion type of music, this is a MUST for your collection! This album as actually my first introduction of Chick Corea where I enjoy his solo album as well, like: The Mad Hatter, My Spanish Heart, Touchstone (especially Compadress - what a wonderful track!).
