9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Neil Mawer on 1 Sept. 2008
Format: Audio CD
What a line up, the mighty Jack Bruce, Billy Cobham, Clem Clemson & David Sancious. Not the jazz fusion jam you may expect but a great selection of Bruce/Brown originals, and one apiece from the others. As with all Jacks masterpiece solo albums, superb songs, masterful vocals & production and world class muscianship.

Issued on CD only in the US in the 90s, this is a superb remastering with great liner notes and makes any previous version redundant

I saw this band live and (after Cream) were the best I've ever seen. So also consider the Jack Bruce Rockpalast Concerts DVD which has a full 90 minute show by them.

This CD has expected for lond time. Jack Bruce again is playing excellent bass. Favourite songs include Bird alone, Mickey the fiddler, Living without ya, Dancing... His parters are Clem Clempson (Bakerloo, Colosseum), Billy Cobham (Miles Davis, Mahavishnu Orchestra) and guitarist/keybord David Sancious (Sting). David Sancious toured in 1983 with Jack Bruce and is superstar player. I do keep this cd in my top JB collection. Go for it till still in stock

...but really near classic. could be in the same row and the same vein with such gemlikes: one of a kind, there and back, danger money, gaucho, face value, in through the out door, sheik yerbouti, animation and deffinitely Todd...
...no weaknesses in content have been found, well-done job from the arteemusic craftsman and collaborator...
...but among the lot of pros there is one con - low level of recording and mastering despite of a delicate and detailed sound in total...
...could be a good last choice of your personal playlist in the dark evening at the end of a day. still prefer vinyl and very grateful to AMAZON.CO.UK & AMAZON.DE for a large range of vinyl format today (just like paradise

Jack in the post 70s... 6 Nov. 1999
By Jason A. Levine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For 1980's "I've Always Wanted To Do This," Jack Bruce took a step out of the 'self-indulgent-ME' 70s and leapt out into the world of click tracks, digital reverb and tight studio (albeit bare) production. The album has a feel which can only be found on releases from 1980-1982, but that's okay. Frankly, this IS NOT one of my favorites (thought Hit and Run is quite catchy); and if you're not keen on that particularly thin, dry, 80s Studio-Sound, you probably won't like this...However, it truly is a period piece, and though it may not shine like 1971's Harmony Row or 1977's How's Tricks, it is certainly akin to Picasso's 'blue' period pieces; a slight departure, but nonetheless brilliant...

Thinking feeling music..rock solid Jack. 12 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jack's music to me, can as a whole be rated a 10. This one is a 9 only compared to the body of his other work. It's not experimental and is just more of classic Jack Bruce. Very solid studio effort. The production is a little (by todays standards) sterile. The song writing style of Jack Bruce on this album seems to be completely unaware or uncaring perhaps of current trends. This doesn't matter much to the listener if the music is taken in an (as is) attitude. In the Album notes Jack comments that he always wanted to get together with these musicians (friends) and do a project. Thus the title. The "fun" they must have had shows through as well as does the obvious meeting of minds

OBSOLETE AUDIO, GET THE 2008 REMASTER INSTEAD 4 Aug. 2008
By BOB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
UK-based ESOTERIC RECORDINGS released a new remaster of this CD on August 25th, 2008.

So, there's no need to buy this old, out-of-print, now-sub-standard audio version.

Link to the 2008 remaster.

NOTE: Due to Amazon's programming of having the same reviews appear on multiple versions of any one title, this review also appears unnecessarily on the '08 remaster.

A great band - a mediocre album 1 Feb. 2011
By Studebacher Hoch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a big fan of Jack Bruce and I was privileged to see this particular line-up twice. This was arguably the best band Jack ever had (including Cream). These guys could play anything from the blues to jazz to rocknroll. So it was very disappointing to hear this album which captured none of the fire, passion, and intensity of the individual members or the band, as a whole. Some of the problem is the song writing. To my mind, this is some of Jack's worst writing - songs like Hit and Run and Dancing on Air are weak. Add to that an overly produced sound combined with polite performances - and you get a very disappointing package. Bird Alone, for instance - which literally took my breath away in performance - here sounds too compressed and too tame. In person - Jack's vocals literally sent shivers down my spine. Not so on this record. In some ways, this CD is a product of its time - a sort of glossy, post-disco era that marred many a recording. Unfortunately, there are many versions of live recordings of this line-up that are available that suffer from poor production quality as well as compromised performances. The best record of this band comes from a WNEW-FM broadcast from the Bottom Line. If you can find it (and so far, I can't) you'll hear what this band can really do. If you don't have Songs for A Tailor, Harmony Row, or Out of the Storm - get those first. They are true masterpieces.
nice sound upgrade for this 5 Oct. 2008
By G. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A big sound upgrade for the Jack Bruce record from 1980 and his last American record for a long while. This featured David Sancious from the old E-Street Band, Billy Cobham from Mahavishnu Orchestra (I think) and Clem Clempson from Colosseum and Humble Pie. I hadn't known that Sancious and Clempson were serious fusionistas but they make this a pop record with fusion accents. I love the record, although I admit there are few really strong songs ("Mickey the Fiddler", "Running Back", and "Dancing on Air" are best IMO). Cobham's surprisingly sweet "Wind and the Sea" seemed ludicrous when I first heard it and now resonates very readily (28 years gets rid of some irony I guess). I think Jack sang too histrionically on some of the record ("In This Way" for example). Sancious is a wonderful synth player and also helped out with some screaming fusion guitar. I haven't heard enough of his music.
