Their first classic album. Features their identifiable first jazz hit "Shaker Song."

"Spyro Gyra is a well-rounded Spyro Gyra record. It was their debut album. It originally appeared back in 1976. This cd conveys a great mixture of sounds and is quite unique 70's Spyro Gyra. For being their debut album, this cd is really quite good.My 3 favorite tracks on this album are 1,2, and 4. Shaker Song is their first song and it's great and has an extraordinary melody to it. OpusD'Opus is also a great track featuring a tight drums/percussion solo. Pygmy Funk is a strange, but good song. Strange is good, right. Throughout the whole cd there are great melodies and many different parts and sounds.This is a good debut album by Spyro Gyra. It is a must for your Spyro Gyra library. It's a classic. However, some of the end songs can get minorly repetitive. All in all, it's a nice cd worth the purchase. The cover art is interesting as well. Thank you for taking the time and generosity to read my review."
Their Debut was just OK? What are you talkin' about?

"I have to play devil's advocate and disagree with the reviews that claim that this debut was only OK! Yeah, yeah....I know they got better and BLAH...blah...blah. WELL...for this band's debut, this is a real treat. Spyro Gyra's debut is in my opinion, A BOLD EFFORT. These tracks still have enough of the REAL 70's FUSION flavored funky-ness to warrant my listening. Their 2nd release is also GREAT. I can't say I ever got pass the 2nd release, but I have at least tried to give the other releases a listen. My sister is an avid fan, but she is also into the SMOOTH JAZZ ilk. YUCK! Anyhow, pick this CD up and give it a good listen. I'm sure that you won't be disappointed."
