"I was exposed to the music of Weather Report through this CD and developed an instant liking for it, that subsequently led to a series of other purchases like Black market,Mysterious Traveller,Heavy weather etc and I have not been disappointed by any of these.Weather report is probably one of the most innovative Jazz bands that has the rare ability to fuse rock rhythms with Jazz that is so distinctive, that seperates it from other Jazz bands.Weather report's Music may not be considered as True Jazz from a purist's point of view.But it is the resulting music that finally matters, that transcends all categorisation.This CD Contains an assorted collection of some of their best Known works.so, if want to own just one Weather Report CD, then this is the one.Alternatively,you could also consider This is Jazz #40."

"This WEATHER REPORT CD is the one to buy if you have never heard of the group. Yes 8:30,a live version of many of the same songs gives you a warm feeling too but it is missing the studio production impact of there big hits like BLACK MARKET , TEEN TOWN and BIRDLAND. Listen to this CD first and it will draw you to this "somewhat before their time" fusion rock jazz group that has changed it's musicians through the years but not the great adventerous jazz(until ending in 86'). Tony Williams played drums with the original group and if you like percussion oriented jazz try some of his own stuff.Enjoy the Weather!"
