"With this album Fusion begun - and this is the best compilation you can get. If you want to find the best work of the earliest ( and perhaps best) fusion group, get this one. This is fusion pur, and you will like every single song!!!!"

"This definate collection provides a spectacular view of the Tony Williams Lifetime. It is a great place to start; to dawn upon the careers of John Mclaughlin, Jack Bruce, and Williams himself. The packaging was impressive; the music: unbeatable."
As usual . . .

"As usual, something out of print that is simply essential. Drum players, by themselves, should make this collection go platinum. There never was and never will be another drummer like Tony Williams. You must have the classic mid-60s Miles Davis sets for a fuller understanding of his magnificent power, but here are the electrified early star explosions that still reverberate in certain receding precincts, when he set out on his own, armed with "Jack Johnson" and "Bitches Brew," the promise of the pre-collapse Sixties idealism, black power and the "murky corridors of your mind" . . . and just let fly. Jack Bruce and John McLaughlin and Larry Young and Tony Williams, they all got together and beat a hole in the world that few peered through and fewer are left to forget. At once punishing and awe inspiring."
