5.0 out of 5 stars Good compilation with some bonuses. 8 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most people will have most of this; the audio includes 3 hitherto unreleased tracks - the original unedited 11-minute take of "Eurydice", a studio version of "Directions" ("we always solo and we never solo"...yes indeed) and a storming, straight-off-the-mixing-desk live version of "Nubian Sundance"...I didn't think it was possible. The 'remix' of "125th St" is rap rubbish, however. Then there is the DVD; Erskine and Pastorius on top form and when they really open up (and they do), the power of this line-up begins to come through. Boy could these guys play!! Even Jaco's show-off-Hendrix-riffs-then-jump-on-my-bass solo is ok. The last time I ever saw Weather Report it was this line-up at London's Rainbow theatre. There was a clock on the wall above one of the exits, and after I'd sat through Jaco's solo for half-an-hour, no exaggeration, I decided to get up and leave; I was furious with Pastorius for trying to (as I felt) destroy my favourite band but I just don't have the choice to stay or leave any more, do I? Alas, no-one does. The DVD captures the line-up at a peak and it is better than the "8.30" album. The booklet should have had a better quality cover and the clear plastic CD trays in my copy aren't glued in properly. Some copies may have a problem with CD2; this is a CBS/Sony product but my Sony CD player has a bit of a problem reading the TOC and the titling (1st track on CD2 only) is wrong. Worth 5 stars for the DVD but the rap remix - though mercifully short - is horrible.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Remark I Made 20 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This set is a bit frustrating, unlike the numerous recent Miles Davis sets the tracks have not been re-mastered or remixed and there is not much in the way of `bonuses or unreleased music here. Apparently Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter chose the tracks and the aim seems to have been to show the development of the bands sound and compositions over their years together. The band had only one hit 'Birdland', which is included of course, but other signature pieces are missing. You won't find `Boogie Woogie Waltz' or the `Moors' on the first disc and the Johnson years are poorly represented on the second, `Between the Thighs', `Cucumber Slumber' and Shorter's epic ballad `Lusitanos' are not included but you do get a live version of The `Nubian Sundance' which suggests the song was tough to play in concert. Zawinul has always claimed that `Madagascar' recorded with Erskine, Thomas and Pastorius was one of their great improvised compositions but you won't find it here or Wayne's tenor out burst on `Fast City'. The third disc which mostly covers Weather Reports final years is actually the most rewarding because this music was undervalued at the time but holds up well now and the selection leaves less to quibble about.

The inclusion of music made by Joe and Wayne before Weather Report takes up space when a mention in the booklet would have sufficed. Most fans have at least heard their work with Miles Davis and the two other tunes are still in print. Isn't there an unreleased Blue Note album with Shorter as leader with Zawinul and Vitous in attendance? If so, will it ever see the light of day?

4.0 out of 5 stars For Those New to Weather Report 18 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you haven't heard them before this could be the one to get. Shop around though; you may get it for less at Amazon France, or elsewhere.
Ideally though you should start with the first, eponymous album from 1971, or even 'Zawinul' from earlier the same year. Then you have the first problem: Live in Japan or I Sing The Body Electric ...or both? I'd go with the former, and pick up the latter at a bargain price once I'd checked out the next two releases. The reason for this is that half the album consists of about 1/3 of the live tracks on Live in Japan.
Anyway, continue with Sweetnighter and Mysterious Traveler - my personal favourite along with the first album.
Thereafter, proceed with caution. A lot of the creativity and originality seems to evaporate from their work, in favour of unmemorable, if high quality, funk, along with a large measure of 'grandstanding' from newer members. Virtually all of the subtle melodic and harmonic invention, as supplied in the first few albums mainly by Zawinul and Shorter, is missing, or appears on rarer and rarer occasions. Indeed often Shorter himself may as well not be there, as has been cited (facetiously) as the sub-text for Mr Gone. The live album, "8:30" is an exception, as Weather Report lost little of their impact on live gigs over the years.
This is when the present offering comes in useful; most if the second and third CDs consists of key post 1974 tracks, and could be all that is required from this period. The DVD is also provides good coverage of the era, and as indicated above, Weather Report were still a force to be reckoned with as a live act. Although, for a balanced view, I'd also recommend the Live in Germany 1971 DVD for a glimpse of Weather Report near their peak.

2.0 out of 5 stars Forcast: WARNING! 12 Oct 2006
By We No Speak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With the greatest respect to the incredible Bob Beldon, Joe Zawinul, and Wayne Shorter, this Box Set should contain a warning.
The warning is simple: If you already own most of the stuff in this collection, don't bother. If you're completely new to Weather Report, buy it.
Coming from someone that's seen the band perform every year since 1972 and own all their official and quite a few "other" releases, I was really disappointed with this project (except for the booklet).

Here are a few things that are puzzling:

1) A Weather Report Box Set includes three songs (two composed by Zawinul and one by Shorter) that were never released by Weather Report:
a. In a Silent Way. released by Miles Davis
b. Super Nova, released by Wayne Shorter
c. Experience in E (Excerpt), released by Cannonball Adderly
(I agree with the liner notes that point to these songs as pre-cursors, but mentioning them would have been enough - they are all in print)

2) An incredible typo stating that Alphonse Mouzon was the drummer on "Unknown Soldier"

3) Including a barely improved version of Nubian Sundance that has been in circulation for many years from "other" sources.

4) Including another "better than, but not by much" version of the "other" sources for the 1978 Rockpalast concert on DVD.

5) Not remastering any of the original recordings. The tape hiss from the Live in Tokyo (I Sing the Body Electric) songs is still clearly heard and not upgrading those old recordings is just plain unacceptable in this day and age.

6) Finally, the cover itself - I have no words, except to admit "I don't get it".

Having said all that negative stuff - Weather Report remains the dominant "creative machine" of the Jazz Rock Fusion era and those that missed it should buy this without hesitating. If you're a long time Weather Report fan - there's absolutely nothing to get excited about here. The DVD was especially disappointing to me. I have had that concert on VHS tape for many years and now on DVD (all from "other" sources) and was shocked to see such incredible video noise on the official version. Zawinul's black and white keys look like polka-dots in many places. (I played the DVD in 5 different players; two TV's and my computer monitor to make sure it wasn't my equipment). I should have paid attention to the PR person at Sony that told me the concert was taken from a re-broadcast of the show and NOT from the master tapes. It's my own fault for having unrealistic expectations. I should probably clarify that while the DVD is in fact clearly better than the "un-offical" version, IT STILL LOOKS LIKE A BOOTLEG! Sad...

It is of some significance that this "review" is the first time I've chosen to speak out about something in Fusion that was less than flattering. It should also be noted that my disappointment is aimed directly at CBS/Sony/BMG and not the musicians/producers.

I'm still amazed that this record company can see fit to release this and hold back the already remastered Mahavishnu Orchestra Live in Cleveland Cd that was supposed to be released in 2004.

Lastly, let me make it perfectly clear that Zawinul, Shorter, and Beldon are musicians and people I personally hold in the highest esteem with Zawinul and Shorter being musical divinities as far as I'm concerned. While my review is an obvious personal venting, and I realize that Zawinul and Shorter gave this project their stamp of approval, I think that shouldn't be mistaken for a personal attack. My remarks are simply observations with some attitude directed at CBS/Sony/BMG.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great collection.........but 1 Oct 2006
By Dazedcat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The truly great thing about this box is the focus put on the early WR and the post Jaco version of the band. Most best of collections skip either or both completely. Disc 1 which focuses on the very beginnings is tremendous. There are new mixes of "Eurydice" and "Orange Lady", an unreleased studio version of "Directions"....it just shows you how esoteric and great the original WR was. Disc 2 and 3 trace further evolution till the end (leaving out their horrid last album, which is very good).

The DVD included is a very nice thing to have; the video is pristine and the soundtrack while not Dolby 5.1 or DTS (I can't see how it could have been considering the year it was recorded) is terrific enough. Seeing Jaco do his solo piece during the Third Stone from the Sun medly really and truly brings back many great memories. But for my own tastes, as good as the DVD is, I would have preferred a fourth music CD instead. As dynamic as the first disc is, too much music is left out trying to cram some thirteen odd years onto two discs. There simply isn't enough room to do so. I realize that Tail Spinnin' is the overlooked WR album, but this should have been the time to bring that album back into focus. No "Punk Jazz" either???

Shorter and Zawinul had full control over this release, so who am I to quibble really. It's a great collection and those new to the band should indeed start here. Old fogies like myself should enjoy it for the memories it brings back....I forgot how good Victor Bailey was for example.

I just wish there was more music.......but this is well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outlook: Sunny and Bright 21 Sep 2006
By John L. Hughes, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After years of planning and many false starts, jazz/fusion supergroup Weather Report is finally honored with a box set consisting of three cds and one smoking live dvd of the band at its peak when bass extraordinare Jaco Pastorius joined. Although there are only three tracks "from the vaults" (a fuzzily recorded alternate take of "Nubian Sundance", an alternate version of the Miles Davis staple "Directions" and a remix of the funky "125th Street Congress"), this box set still serves as an excellent overview of an important band. Tracks from all Weather Report albums are represented here except for the weak 1986 album "THIS IS THIS" (good move). Grammy-worthy liner notes along with rare photos dominate the colorful 100-page booklet that comes with the set. Box set producers Bob Belden, Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter are to be commended for putting together one of the best box sets of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomorrow: Will be sunny forever with this music 23 Sep 2006
By Martin Legg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a band!! This is jazz fusion at its best, with monsters at the helm. Anyone who has ever played bass or even thought about it needs to see this DVD of Jaco Pastorious. One of the preeminent electric bass guitarists of then and forever, whose life was tragically cut short. This is a rare video of him in action, and he is simply outstanding. Wayne Shorter on all things sax will "blow" your mind. Just say "played with Miles"; 'nough said. And then there is Joe. Zawinul. A true heavyweight on keyboards with sounds that will amaze and entertain you. And lets not forget Peter Erskine on drums; unbelievable: strong, fast and dynamic. Even if you have a good collection of WR cd's buy this for the video alone, it is worth the price. Also comes with a killer booklet. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice box set 8 Nov 2006
By rucktoon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've got all their albums and CD's, but this box set is a very nice collection. The DVD is well worth it - I think the clarity is fine, and again there is no other live footage of this band available that I'll ever see (I saw this tour actually). Nice booklet; the 125th Congress remix is just a waste of space and does nothing - why was that crap necessary?

Sound is good throughout - could've boosted the bass a bit more in the mix.

And the cover is just silly. 4 stars tho.
