    That first one isn't the full album on CD though, right?

    Didn't realize about the japanese only albums, but as you said it basically counts for not being released at all.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    It's the Circle material, but not the 1968 Corea/Vitous/Haynes set which takes up side one and most of side two of the double LP.
    Contrary to popular demand: THE HIPCRIME VOCAB CD startlingly available!

It made all my Yes and Tull records seem tame in comparison and (along with SM's Third) opened me up to jazz and its many fusions. I went from the RTF record not only to the RTF band but also to Metheny and Weather Report, and then backwards to Coltrane and Miles. But the original RTF record still delivers a trip unlike any other.

    Yes, their best album for me too, the debut RtF with a seagull..I love all others they did, but this is such a special album, great compositions and performance is so exquisite

    Most of the stuff with Vitous/Haynes rhythm section, apparently, has been used as bonus tracks on CD reissues of Now He Sings, Now He Sobs. According to Wikipedia, only Blues Connotation is missing.

    NP: Corea, Clarke & White - Forever on the headphones. This is a killer 2-CD set. Disc one is live and disc two studio, with Ponty and Connors... outstanding! Probably my favourite version of Senor Mouse too.

Besides, this CD is progressive as hell.

    This recording shows what has been stated earlier in this thread, that he never lost his creative touch or his mystical persona.
    yes, that album is awesome. Like you said, it is absolutely progressive in the true sense of the word. I havent spun it in a few years but ISTR it was made up of some very long pieces which morphed and changed as they developed. Chick was such a creative force. Amazing album that totally took me by surprise especially since it is a later, 2006 recording.
    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?

    Chick Corea in Milford Graves band(1960, according to the information provided).Milford Graves is on timbales.I saw another photo last year sometime of the same band minus Pete Yellin(saxophone) and Chick Corea minus glasses.That photo caption said it was taken in 1962.I've been looking for this photo on the net but can't find it.

    Chick is a nice segue from Canterbury....he was like the American Canterbury at times

    PS...you're correct - that "Senior Mouse" kicks ass! My fav might still be DiMeola's on Casino since I grew up on that album.

    I listened to the Super Trio live album (Corea, Gadd, McBride) the other day on YT and that's badass.

    And I didn't like Akoustic Band way back when, either...

    It was great, I really enjoyed it. The only thing that I found strange was that some people just left with no goodbye or anything. Seemed a bit odd to me.

    I snagged a couple of used CDs from ebay including Akoustic Band Live, and Beneath The Mask. Two of the better ones from that era.

    I listened to the complete Is Sessions for the first time yesterday. Damn is that stuff sweet. Shame it seems to be oop. Another blue note disappointment.

    I just rebought Is on LP, since I lost mine when I moved. Great free music from long ago.
    I'm not lazy. I just work so fast I'm always done.
