Comments:  This is WR in still-finding-there-feet mode. Their studio tracks are very eclectic and the live ones are absolutely bonkers, and i mean that in a good way. Joe Zawinul is using all manner of effects on his Rhodes piano and it sounds worlds apart from the more subdued version on Heavy Weather. Miroslav Vitous is a great acoustic bassist but he does not sound comfortable playing electric. When he plays the latter it sounds as though he wants to be a rock guitarist. Joe Zawinul would become increasingly frustrated by this come the next album. To be continued...
