(2-LP set) Weather Report's biggest-selling album is that ideal thing, a popular and artistic success and for the same reasons. Released just as the jazz-rock movement began to run out of steam, this landmark album proved that there was plenty of creative life left in the idiom. This powerhouse super group, comprised of Joe Zawinul, Jaco Pastorius, Wayne Shorter, Alex Acuna and Manolo Badrena, delivered their only certified Platinum release with this killer cut. The album features the jazz standard "Birdland" and was Columbia's best-selling jazz albums. Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original master tapes & pressed at RTI. 2500 numbered deluxe limited edition in a laminated gatefold jacket. 45 rpm, 180 gram vinyl.
