Douglas, 1970/1972 reissue
Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, Paco De Lucia

3PM - Better Late Than Never (1981)
3PM played a funky, heavy yet breezy fusion with ease. They easily wailed out covers of Return To Forever songs and their dual guitar attack was immense! Bassist Jerry Peek went on to play in the Steve Morse Band after 3PM folded. Guitarist Bernie Petteway is known for his work with Triangle area Jazz-Fusion group 3PM and has performed in settings as wide-ranging as with David Palmer of Jethro Tull, to the Dixie Dregs, Pat Benetar, The BeeGees, Tito Puente, and the St. Louis and North Carolina Symphonies. John Wheliss is a guitar teacher in Releigh, NC.

I thought I had this!
It's the one I found about a month or two ago, unopened!
I posted it here somewhere but here's the pics.
Different cover, but same stuff.
I took Monday off as a mental health day.
Went to ZIA's and picked up a few things. Among them, this, which sadly has been missing from my collection for too long.
To paraphrase Dorothy - Oh my, lions and tigers and McLaughlin is on fire .
That's an all time favorite!
Nice find Jim, I saw that cover before. When they first released it it was untitled in the same year ('76) they re-released it again and named it "Jaco". Great album!!
I actually found it in my own collection. I had to have bought it back around 1974 or so. I spent quite a few years without a turntable but have kept and moved my albums a few times.
Ran across it just recently and couldn't believe I had never opened it. I still haven't but I need to. Life's too short!
Such a great find Jim! Scoring an album without leaving the house isn't the easiest thing to do.
Beloved Friday Fusion . . .
Miles Davis ~ Big Fun
Lot's of greatness on that album, some of the tastiest drumming by Harvey Mason, also some great guests on nearly every song.

Introducing The Eleventh House with Larry Coryell
The Eleventh House with Larry Coryell
1974 Vanguard VSD-79342
My CD/LP/TAPE Collection
I saw this lineup open up for Return To Forever in Symphony Hall!
It was a weird show. I've always been a huge Larry fan, but they were way too loud for the venue.
People were yelling for them to turn down. The set was loose to say the least.
Alphonse took a loooong drum solo and actually used a vibrator at one point on his drums!
Larry sat off to the side looking at his watch while this took place.
They finished and when RTF took the stage, they owned it. Perfect volume and performance.
Nevertheless, always dug Larry. RIP.
