Rites Of Summer!!!!!!
Chris Covais | New York | 09/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is by far, one of Spyro Gyra's greatest records. It's got everything you would want, expect, and love from the world's greatest band, period! Forget about The Beatles, Led Zeplin, these guys make really great music. As far as jazz goes, Spyro Gyra wins, hands down. It might take a while to convince rock fans, but Spyro Gyra is truley a magnificent group. Although this album starts off with a boring ballad, (the only clinker on the whole album), it gets better with, Daddy's Got A New Girl Now. A tune that would latet turn into a feature for guitarist, Julio Fernandez, at concerts and shows. It remenises, their earlier, Shakedown, but is a masterpiece in its own right. Shanghi Gumbo has to be the most creative and most bright song you ever heard. Dave Samuels' Limelight, is also wonderful. No Man's Land is another great track. Kaptin Karhma i a gem! This album is one of Spyro Gyra's best albums. Their most creative time period was about to come to a close; the 80's, but they ended that decade with a bang! Rites Of Summer, and Point Of View. Once Richie Morales left, the group changed its style, but they'll still always be my favorite band, hands down!!!!!!!!"
