OK, so you have a buch of virtuoso musicians, playing live. Could be a recipe for boredom, disaster, nasty sound etc.

Nope. That opening track is just tooooooo darn funky, I can listen to it over and over.

The rest of the album is no slouch, certainly Alphonso Johnson gives some blistering bass solos, with that unique sound that only he seems to have.

It's a mighty shame this bunch did not record more, but there you go - enjoy this at least as a fusion masterwork.

Great tunes, especially Hip Pockets, Almustafa, and Juicy. The four musicians all sound as though they've enjoyed themselves. George is brilliant, as is Alphonso and the rest of the band. Wish I'd been there.

This is an excellent album. The opening track is very funky with Alphonso on bass.
The only thing I wished they had included was Stratus.

HASH(0x9005dbc4) out of 5 stars THIS ALBUM IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!!!!!! 4 Mar. 2001
By D. Rapport - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I remember hearing this album at my friend's house a few years ago and just being blown away. I have searched every used vinyl store since looking for it to no avail. Finally it's been re-released on CD and I can die a happy man. "Hip Pockets" and "Almustafa the Beloved" rival any jazz-funk-rock fusion songs ever. Cobham's dumming is incredibly intense, Duke's keyboard sounds are revolutionary, Scofield is funky, and Al Johnson is one of the tighest bassists ever. There is some really out stuff on this album that not everyone will like but there are also a few really amazing gems on it. I wish they'd release more of the tapes from this concert! If you buy this album you will not be dissapointed

HASH(0x9005dc18) out of 5 stars Resurrected at last!!! 6 Oct. 2000
By david s medsker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I can't believe this is a 25 year old live analog recording!! Every song is terrific, the European audience is quiet and attentive, and these guys have a fusion sound to transcend any rock-jazz recording I've ever heard. Makes me want to get every George Clinton or Stanley Clarke recording I can get my hands on and lock myself in for a day.

HASH(0x905c006c) out of 5 stars Fantastic band, stellar live album. 28 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This record is probably the only documentation of this awesome act, which included John Scofield on guitar and Alphonso Johnson on bass--both at the top of their craft. This is true fusion: heavy on the funk and rock, but chock fulla killer jazz changes and full-shred soloing. As usual with a Cobham offering, there are moments of self-indulgence (Frankenstein Goes to the Disco) and there are plenty of space noises. But this truly represents the finest era of jazz/rock fusion--before the genre was nearly destroyed by "smooth jazz."

HASH(0x9006075c) out of 5 stars Duke And Cobham Are ALIVE!!! 29 Aug. 2003
By Andre' S Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
We're all well aware of Billy Cobham's talents but this serves at presenting George Duke in his ecclectic pre-Reach For It" stage-the only CD evidance taht I know of."Hip Pockets" and
the John Scofield guitar-whipped "Ivory Towers" make a powerful
starter while the avante-garde synthesizer racket on Duke's own
"Frankstein Goes To The Disco puts the artists current preoccuptaion with bland commercial pop to shame!Not to be ignored is the Sun-Ra-sih rap of "Space Lady"-it's Billy Cobham all over but a whole other side of George Duke,one that we don't see too often these days.A "new colossus" as it were!

HASH(0x900600fc) out of 5 stars a mammoth recording 16 Feb. 2006
By Ryan Cafferty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
a perfect live analog recording here...i got a copy of the atlantic vinyl release from my uncle's impeccable 70's funk/soul collection. i lit up when i saw george duke's mug on the front, and was thrilled to see perfect vinyl...i was blown away by the quality of the music, and the quality of the recording itself. this one opens up with a giant version of hip pockets. duke, cobham, and scofield stand and deliver a nice snapshot of mid 70's power fusion. you can hear exactly why mid 70's zappa was so perfect when you hear george duke play with other musicians. his contribution was immense. this recording just comes together well. i'd grab up a copy immediately if i hadn't transferred the recording from vinyl already.

bottom line: oozy, funky, rhythmic, perfect, fun, complex, and extraordinary fusion from some extremely talented musicians at the peak of their pioneering. buy it now.
