Great Band! Bad Channel 1!!!!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"The band it always tight and really swings. All the charts are enjoyable to listen to except for Channel 1 Suite. If you purchase this cd, do not listen to Channel 1, EVER!! Just pretend that it is not on the cd. They took one of the greatest tunes of all time and massacred it. If you do listen to Channel 1, you will never be able to listen to the real version of it without having these stupid lyrics run through your head. However the rest of the cd is fantastic and definately worth getting."
Great album - but lose the vocals!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Another shining example,as was the first volume, of a tribute by some of todays outstanding drummers to Buddy's music. Sadly marred by the contrived vocal nonsense that is overdubbed on Channel 1 Suite.(Trust the Logan family to turn art into a pantomime!) Obviously respectfully intended,it only serves to irritate and detract from what was, after all, one of the bands most popular charts. Avoid and enjoy what is otherwise an excellent album."
A Teaching Tool

"There seems to be a strong consensus that listeners should skip the over-dubbed "Channel One." Ditto, but the real clinker on this otherwise excellent CD is "Goodbye Yesterday," played by Simon Phillips. This was always one of my favorite Rich charts, one of many fine efforts by Don Piestrup in his book. I was enthused to see it included in Part II, especially since I had never heard him play it live in a dozen or so concerts. But I have to say that Simon Phillips' work left me speechless. He has absolutely NO CLUE! Just listen to Buddy's work on the "Mercy, Mercy" album and then follow up with this one. Was he kidding? Why would Neal Peart include this disastrous cut? We are not talking about the impossibility of playing up with The Master, here, but just complete misinterpretation. This album is a great teaching tool. Novice drummers will learn much by listening to the original cuts, and then the new versions. Some very lame big band drumming can be contrasted with great work by Smitty Smith, Dave Weckle, and Joe Morello. Neal Peart clearly is the best of the rockers."
