Best heard loud. The only thing wrong with this recording is that it isn't substantially longer. Erskine and Jaco form a disciplined and enormously powerful rhythm section that Zawinul and Shorter ride like a thousand foot wave. Scarlet Woman is expertly treated with sci-fi sound effects, from rocket launch to space accident. Teentown is, frankly, overcooked and scattered. A Remark You Made is really beautifully performed. Slang showcases Jaco and his digital delay (incredible that this wall of sound could be performed live by one man). But the real highlight is Badia/Boogie Woogie Waltz. It features Jaco's frenetic bass licks, frenzied drumming and almost wobbles entirely out of control until a huge close decays into the sound of a train. The audience is hugely enthusiastic, which makes this a very good listen. The studio tracks are interesting (exception: The Orphan), particularly 8:30, which features Jaco on drums(!). This should be reissued in a box set with bonus tracks. Twenty years after it was issued, it's still the best live fusion album ever made, and an important document of the incredible musical phenomenon that was Weather Report.

If I had to choose which WR album I most like, it would be somewhere between Heavy Weather or Mysterious Traveller. It's simply hard to pick up one favourite. BUt if I were asked which tune is the ultimate WR tune, I definitely would choose BADIA/BOOGIE WOOGIE WALTZ Medley from 8:30. This track epitomized everything that WR was all about. This track, a monstrous live version, shows all corners of WR's ideology: space, catchable 'tune', catchable 'hook', improvising and monstrous power between Jaco and Erskine....this song should be the ultimate introduction to Weather Report. I only wished that the drums were more mixed to the front (especially the snare drums)...but let's not forget the great other classics on this live record: Slang (Jaco's solo), Black Market and of course, Birdland.

I saw Weather Report in London at the Hammersmith Odeon on the tour from which this was made, though I have no way of knowing whether any of the recordings came from that concert. '8:30' is a pretty accurate souvenir of those concerts, with all their histrionics, sound effects and solo spots. (Somehow Jaco's bass solo, which normally exceeded 20 minutes, is kept to under five here.) Pete Erskine does a grand job on drums, but this album cannot convey the disappointment that, in order to get Erskine, we lost TWO percussionists. I know nothing about drumming, and for all I know Acuna and Badrena may have been just merely good at their craft. But they brought a wonderful spirit to Weather Report concerts -- sometimes competitive, sometimes collaborative, but always energetic and in good humour. With no percussionists from Latin America, the new four-man band was very much the first-world Weather Report; save Shorter, it was white men playing jazz.
As other reviewers have said, it was a mistake by Sony to remove one track from the CBS double album to squeeze it onto one CD, particularly as it is my favourite, if not the best track. 'Scarlet Woman' had a wonderful spacey intro, a brand new riff from Jaco replacing the Al Johnson lick, one of the biggest decibel ranges between the loud and quiet passages, and a bizarre sotto voce sound-effect ending. But there's no point in my telling you that. You get all the rest of the tracks from the original album, all of which are good, even if few are marvellous. But, if given the choice, I would prefer to listen to the studio version of every track here.

NOTE: The Amazon tracklist above is incorrect. This is the complete, TWO DISC set of the original 13-track double-LP album (as evidenced by the CD's catalog number SICP-1247/48), and properly restores "Scarlet Woman" to the album (edited off all domestic releases to allow a single CD release). The correct tracklist for this set is:

Disc: 1
1. Black Market
2. Scarlet Woman
3. Teen Town
4. Remark You Made
5. Slang (Bass Solo)
6. In a Silent Way
Disc: 2
1. Birdland
2. Thanks for the Memory [Tenor Sax Solo]
3. Badia/Boogie Woogie Waltz Medley
4. 8:30
5. Brown Street
6. Orphan
7. Sightseeing

In 2007, the main 16 Weather Report Columbia titles were re-released in Japan with new DSD remastering in mini-sleeve format. From an audio quality standpoint, the DSD versions now supercede all the earlier standard-CD-audio U.S. releases (some of the WR catalog are available as SACD's).

So far, the WR DSD catalog is only available in mini-sleeve format, and all `sleeves are limited edition. If it is your desire to own the latest/greatest audio, then don't delay in picking these up, although it is always possible that Sony Japan will release them again as less expensive jewel case editions somewhere down the road. However, for the true WR fan and vinyl nut, it's great to have the wonderful mini-LP replicas of the original LP covers!

I wanted to provide links for each 2007 `sleeve edition, but unfortunately, Amazon only allows 10 per review. But, by linking to the 2007 DSD remaster of the first
