4 stars Wilding &Bonus two excellent musicians who not quite made it in jazz fusion realm in late '70's but with all downs and few ups from their short career they manage to release a great one single album in 1978 named Pleasure signals. Danny Wilding who is responsable for guitar arrangements and Pete Bonus for the flute parts gathered around them some stellar musicians from jazz rock/fusion zone in this album. I think this album is better known for the guests featuring here then for Wilding and Bonus. Anyway, 3 members from Brand X - Phil Collins (drums), John Goodsall (guitars, bass), Robin Lumley(keyboards) + Bayet' from Automatic Man and among others percutionist Rebop Kwaku Baah who was memeber in Can or Traffic, so some top notch musicins here, each one with his contribution in developing the sound of this album, but above all Pete Bonus is the one who gives the shining moments on this album, at least for my ears. No one can deny the beautiful and very snooth arrangements on flute from here, the perfect example is almost Tullian aproach on G. Storm, what an excellent piece where the flute simply shine not else, the rest of the pieces are more then ok, instrumental jazz fusion very well played and composed. I really liked what I've heared on this unknown and forgotten album from late '70's. 4 stars this time, not really groundbreaking moments, but the passages are so enjoyble that is hard for me not to give a high rating. Very intelligent I might say cover art, great.
