Customer Reviews

Great Live Sound!

This album was recorded at NHK Hall in Tokyo, Japan on Jan. 18, 1981. It features three-fourths of the original Crusaders: Joe Sample, Stix Hooper and Wilton Felder. Additional members for this recording include: Alphonso Johnson/bass, Barry Finnerty & Roland Bautista/guitars and Rafael Cruz/percussion. If you're a Crusaders fan, this is wonderful music that brings back some terrific musical memories. This recording nicely captures the upbeat energy of a live recording. It's almost a "Great Hits" record featuring "Rainbox Seeker", "Spiral" "Carmel", the haunting "So Far Away" and the infectious anthem "Put it where you want it." Five stars!
