    Not sure if this is what the OP was/is in search of, but I think this is a pretty killing live/everyone-in-the-same-room drum recording. And the chops are off the hook.

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.

    Nothing slick or sophisticated here, but I love the big, organic sound of this off-the-wall recording from 1968. The drummer is Ricky Fataar, playing with the South African ‘soul’ band The Flames. Fataar went on to join the Beach Boys and was in the Rutles’ film, All You Need Is Cash. South African albums in the late 1960s were recorded over a weekend on pretty rudimentary equipment (which almost maxes out here at the 2:16 mark). Blondie Chaplin, another future Beach Boy, is on vocals.

    Most Zappa recordings from about 1969 - 1980ish always had terrific and unique drummers play on those. The recorded drum kits usually sound very good to exemplary imo.
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    Wow, Snarky puppy has a great drummer... However I'm not sure that the recording is that remarkable.. More like the performance. Of course its live, so you'll never get studio quality.
    I got nothin'

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    1. Raiders in the Temple of Boom - fusion instrumental with some sound effects tapes
    2. Big D - fusion instrumental
    3. Exit - down-tempo instrumental with stirring finish
    4. Kashmir - soul vocal version of the LZ classic(?!?)
    5. Mr. DePriest - jazz on bass clarinet with some hip hop turntablist elements
    6. No Man's Land - laid back jazz instrumental
    7. It Was A Very Good Year - downtempo vocal version of the Sinatra song(?!?)
    8. Truth - The Breath of Life - downtempo instrumental ballad
    9. If Six Was Four - funky vocal (no relation to Hendrix's "If Six Was Nine")
    10. Chatter - drum solo 1:50
    11. Semi-Five - funky fusion instrumental in 5/4

    Eric Kamau Gravatt - Weather Report "I Sing The Body Electric"
    Bill Bruford - "On of a kind"
    Bill Bruford on King Crimson "Discipline"
    Bill Bruford on the first "Earthworks" album
    Gavin Harrison on Porcupine Tree "In Absentia" (to me THE best sounding drums ever recorded)
    Vinnie Colaiuta on Sting "Ten summoner' tales"
    Phil Collins on any Brand X album
    Pierre Moerlen on Gong "Gazeuse!"
    Keith Moon on "Quadrophenia"

    are my favorites, but there are so many others....

    Best (rock/fusion) drum recording ever ? Check James Newton Howard & Friends on Sheffield Labs. ( the "friends" being no less than Jeff, Joe, Steve Porcaro and David Paich. Sounds familiar ?) An absolute reference, still unsurpassed today, and unlike most audiophile recordings the music is excellent too. I'm not a vinyl freak but this one is amongst the 3 or 4 best pressings/recordings in my collection of over 4.000 records. Incredible dynamics !

    Yeah, like I said, it's live, and therefore imperfect, but still... And the backstory is even cooler: the drummer wasn't the first choice for the gig, flew in at the last minute, and rehearsed with the group for less than a day before the recording of the video.

    I just relistened Weckls Masterplan yesterday (because I own it), and allthough its a fair fusion album with a stellar lineup. Its not overwhelming musically, and not a audiophile recording. I have heard him better with other people.

    Don't know the later albums though...

    I liked the sound of Nick Mason's drums on Dark Side of the Moon.

    Natural echo from a large room in an Italian Castle IIRC.

    It's gorgeous. Not just the echo, but the whole sound.

    It is quite nice indeed. I would also argue Alan's peak as a player. A slightly dimmed fire from "Relayer" days but more nuance and control. Wish I liked the actual material more 😉
