Format: Audio CD
Wow is the appropriate response! I'm loved Joe Sample's 1978 debut solo album "Rainbow Seeker" like I've loved Steely Dan's "Aja" from the year before. I can't be rational about either. So any excuse to get a better version is Nirvana to my ears...

In June and July of 2011 - Universal Music Japan launched what they called their "JAZZ THE BEST" series of reissues - 150 titles across their vast catalogue and all on the SHM-CD format (Super High Materials) and all apparently using the RUBIDIUM Atomic Clock Cutting Process. Each were pitched at roughly 1800 yen which is about £9 to you or I (mid price) and came in jewel-cases with new liner notes and of course the SHM-CD. Whatever the techno mumbo-jumbo - the remastered audio I'm listening to right now for "Rainbow Seeker" (one of those titles) has to be the best I've ever heard - and not just for this album - but in terms of a transfer that retains the warmth of the analogue original. This is gorgeous and has me frantically searching for other "Jazz The Best" titles I can buy in this series (see list below).

Here are the details... Released 22 June 2011 in Japan - "Rainbow Seeker" by JOE SAMPLE (of The Crusaders) in on Universal Music Japan/MCA UCCU-6047 (use Barcode 4988005651617 to get the right issue) and breaks down as follows (42:41 minutes):

1. Rainbow Seeker
2. In All My Wildest Dreams
3. There Are Many Stops Along The Way
4. Melodies Of Love
5. Fly With Wings Of Love - [Side 2]
6. As Long As It Lasts
7. Islands In The Rain
8.

A classic piece of musical Art.

Sampled by Tupac amongst others, clearly a masterpiece by a maestro, so sad he's passed. RIP.

Bought this because the track In All My Wildest Dreams was sampled by De La Soul on WRMS' Dedication to the Bitty from 1991's De La Soul Is Dead. Just a beautiful track and worth the 4 stars on its own

Many colors in this "Rainbow" 4 Jun. 2000
By Jeffrey Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Joe Sample's debut solo album from 1978, more than stands the test of time over the 20 years since it was first released. "Rainbow Seeker" features support from his Crusaders bandmates "Stix" Hooper, Wilton Felder, and bassist Robert "Pops" Popwell, but has it's own unique character apart from The Crusaders records. Every track on this album is great including "In All My Wildest Dreams", "There Are Many Stops Along The Way", "Melodies Of Love", and "Fly With The Wings Of Love". Sample has made other excellent albums, including the 1979 follow up "Carmel", but this one is one of the absolute best of the genre. A contemporary jazz masterpiece.

ONE OF THE BEST JAZZ ALBUMS OF ALL TIMES 15 May 2000
By Tony_Tone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I remember my pops use to play this all the time.. Coming up in a household where music was always played and with my father being a great jazz fan i have developed the taste for jazz over the years.. I have been looking for this album for some years on cd and finally just recently purchased it .. It still sounds great in 2000 as it did when it was release back in 78.. Joe Sample is an accomplish pianist, writer, producer accomplishments are plenty with working with the likes of Take 6, Lalah Hathaway, being a one time member of the great jazz fusion group the crusaders.. In 78 Mr Sample delivered what i do concern one of the best jazz albums in contemporary jazz from the opening track Rainbow Seeker it will have you hook.. In All My Wildest Dream.. which is my personal favorite track on the entire disc.. A few hip hoppers have sampled this great track 2 Pac, De La Soul , Arrested Development have used this tune at one time or another... Melodies of Love , another great track.. This song was redone last year on the Joe Sample/Lalah Hathaway CD .. On the latter mentioned the song had vocals added.. other noteworthy tracks.. Fly With The Wings Of Love, Islands In The Rain.. This is a must for all jazz fans to have in their collection..

Absolutely the BEST! 15 Aug. 2005
By W. Beck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When this album originally came out, I had heard of Sample's work with the Crusaders and thought I would take a chance on his first 'solo' effort. I brought the LP up to the longhair at the cash register and he smiled and exclaimed: "That's a GREAT record!" Little did I know.....

Now 20 years later, this CD is still in constant rotation in my house and car. This IS the BEST of Joe Sample. Great writing and arranging. A great 'Road Trip' album. Pre "smooth-jazz" B.S. A perfect album.

A few of these tunes were remade on the album "Sample This". Nicely done, but the originals stick with me. Don't be afraid to buy this one!

A MUST in ANY Jazz/R&B listener's collection 19 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Joe Sample's Rainbow Seeker is my favorite of all of his solo albums. It has classic rhythms and melodies that perfectly blend, classical, jazz, rock, and r& b and latin music. The CD has never just sat on my shelf at home. I can listen to it and never get bored. "Fly With the Wings of Love" is my favorite track because it is timeless. It actually makes you feel like you're flying. I was five years old when this album first came out and made me a forever fan of Joe, and the Crusaders. Also, if you have never been to a Joe Sample/Crusaders concert, you are missing out. They give excellent live shows and interact well with the audience.
NOTE***For all of you younguns out there who listen to rap/hip-hop take note. Track two on this album, "In ALL MY WILDEST DREAMS", was sampled by TUPAC for "Dear MAMA". Once you know where the beats come from, then you can really enjoy/appreciate the art.

I was introduced to this album in 1978 in Germany, and when i used to play it in my apartment here in the states, the other tenants would request for me to turn it up and play it again. his music is soothing, relaxing, just out right GREAT.
