    this album has held up really well for me. It's jazz with a cinematic tilt- featuring exciting uptempo stuff as well as ballads - peppered with lots of strings, brass and dynamics. Oh, and a ton of 80's synths. The tunes are through composed- so it takes a few listens to catch hold of the them, but they are just a treat to listen to on a good system. The recording is clear and stunning- with a wide soundstage, and a really solid mix that lets all of the instruments come through with unusual clarity. Which is quite a feat, given that the recording was captured live to two track digital.

      I first became familiar with this record as an audiophile demo record at my local audio dealer in my home town. I grew to like the music, and when I found two still sealed copies all those years ago, I gave one of them to my friend that worked at the audio dealer, and I think he was pretty happy to own that. I still own my copy 25 years later, and I play it sometimes to experience the powerful and exciting sound of this record.

        I once had this rare album in vinyl. I recently found a CD of it and yeah, it cost me. But this is incredible music and I do see why Earth, Wind & Fire hired Bill to replace the legendary Charles Stephney as Arranger for the band. I thought Bill did a incredible job for EWF, he had HUGE shoes to step into. Bill writes very melodic Fusion music with a twist of Classical & a nice dose of Funk in the right spots. The 1st track alone is worth the price. Also, his other CD, 'All Things In Time', was execllent too. But this album was like a suite and it really sweeps you away. Killer solos too. For those who like this style of music, also check out Jim Beard's 'Revolution', it is an updated version of this quasi Third Stream sound.
