    Where did you find that CD set? I want that! :)

    That was recorded at "My Father's Place" in NY.

    I also saw The One Truth Band at the Park West, Chicago. What an incredible show it was! The Billy Cobham Band was back up. Weeks after the concert radio station WXRT aired one hour of the McLaughlin segment of the show on the radio and I recorded on cassette and still play it to this day. I recently found what seems to be a bootleg CD of that same show that I saw/recorded. See link below.

    Wow, what a concert! Some real surprise songs there, like "A Lotus on Irish Streams", "Eternity's Breath" & "Earth Ship". Well done Maestro John!!

    This was almost as good as being there in Buffalo. Excellent show once again. Fortunately, if you missed it, it's still available on YouTube in it's entirety.

    It's a bootleg, from Japan.
    I love Youtube for things like this!

    I watched that one quite a few times before. Saunders & Smith were a great rhythm section also for the OTB. I saw them with the Jan Hammer Group several times in the 70's with Steve Kindler on violin.

    I consider this to be a masterpiece album. Klaus Doldinger really showed his genius on this one. I find when I give it a spin, the songs will be running through my mind for days, if not weeks, afterward.

    Really enjoyed this one again the other day. Larry does a beautiful solo rendition of Harrison's "Something" and a lot of jazz standards and so on.

    Yep, got to see Jeff Beck with the Jan Hammer Group with that same line up, as for OTB, Tony was not the drummer, "Sunship" Theus was at that particular time, he was absolutely phenomenal.

    I also saw Beck with Jan Hammer at old Comiskey Park in Chicago. You probably saw the same OTB tour as I did with Woody Theus on drums & T.M. Stevens on bass. They were ideal for that band. "Sonship" out drummed Cobham the night I saw them with his incredible energy!

    I have to agree, with your accolades for Sunship, he was mesmerizing, as were the other musicians, my good friend, who is an excellent drummer in his own right, was completely blown away by Theus, and funny, that was so long ago, and he seemed to never get the recognition of the Whites, Cobhams, Mouzon, even the great names that would come along long after that period, seems he was grossly underrecorded. I understand he is passed away now.
    I have so many great memories from the 70's shows I did get to see, CBS Allstars (Khan, Cobham, Tom Scott, Alphonso Johnson, Soskin), Lenny White doing the Astral Pirates tour with a dual guitar attack, Freddie Hubbard Band also in that gig.
    Chick Corea EBand twice. JL Ponty twice.
    YellowJackets, Brufords Earthworks, Steve Morse Band, and Mr Mister at the same gig.
    Dave Weckl Band (Weckl, Tom Kennedy, Brandon Fields, Steve Weingart,)
    George Duke and Stanley Clarke, with the Dregs as a warm up band.
    Many other great shows, but not nearly enough bands come to Mpls/St Paul for some reason. +

    You saw a lot of great shows! I saw a lot of the same concerts! I lived in the Old Town area, the heart of the Chicago music scene from 1961 as a young kid through the 90's and saw a lot of shows. I also saw the "CBS Allstars", that was a great show! I met Chick one time at a restaurant just before an Elektric Band show, man what great guy so easy to talk to. I must have missed that "Astral Pirates" show. That would have been excellent!

    I miss those days . . . in the 80's the music scene in the neighborhood disappeared. All the clubs & bars yuppified to sports bars and forced all the musicians, artist & bohemian types in the neighborhood to disperse across the city due to high rent and such. Sure was a cool scene back in the day culturally.

    The "CBS Jazz All Stars" concert featured a few tunes off of this album. I have bitter-sweet memories of it. It was one of my best friends & bandmate favorite lp's when it was released, he just loved it and I spun it for him often and he attended concert with me in '77. He was taken away at age 30 in '84 by cancer. That changed my life forever, I was 27. Accordingly I dedicate this to my fallen brother, Johnny.
