I own this on vinyl and it still sounds good. However, I do not get the Tommy Bolin bit at all. I have 3 of his albums, none of which sound like this. To me, this is the sort of pomposity that punk was to explode. As much as I liked it at the time and still do, you have to say that the Jazz/Rock/Classical fusion stuff very much has had its day. Coloseum II are a better refernce point for this album. War Dance and Electric Savage albums (Airey, Hiseman, Mole and Moore were COloseum II after all) were good back then but you'd hardly listen tio them these days!

Hi my Bolin idea came to me after listenin to a few cds that his family released after his death. Its almost Tommys not sure what direction to follow there are some blistering work outs jazzy rock fusion and listening to the variations album a few tracks are what Bolin was doing.
