4.0 out of 5 stars Best of late-era RTF October 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fairly good collection, definitely some good stuff here, but be aware that this is the late-era, "big band" version of RTF. The _real_ good stuff is earlier editions of RTF (see "Return to the 7th Galaxy"), but this version isn't bad, and also acts as a good intro to Chick's following solo albums (Mad Hatter, Leprechaun, etc.).

This eclectic mix is a fine representation from one of the foremost pioneering groups in contemporary jazz. Founding members, Chick Corea, Al Demiola, Lenny White and Stanley Clarke have influenced more musicians in the genre' than any other group before them. Their musical progency is amply demonstrated on every cut on Best of RTF. Even after 20 years, the talents and abilities of the individual members is evident. The production values still hold water after 20 years. If you've never heard RTF before, do yourself a favor, you won't be disappointed. RTF was only the seed, the full grown flowers are still out there doing it better than ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars stargazer August 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Best of Return to Forever is a starting point to get the group and individual efforts of some "GREAT MUSIC".If you like the best of RTF I encourage listening to other cds by RTF because it is so incomplete.Start with "Romantic Warrior".

4.0 out of 5 stars Fusion and Non Fusion Mixed December 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a strange "Best of" collection. I bought it years ago on cassette and recently purchased it on CD. Why? For some reason I like the way the two styles of RTF are mixed on this CD. There are two completely versions of RTF on this collection. Chick had signed with Columbia and did the album "Romantic Warrior" the best fusion album ever. For reasons know only to Chick and L Ron he broke the band up and fired Al DiMeola and Lenny White. Then he hired a band for his wife Gayle Moran and called it Return To Forever and released "Music Magic" with the new band. There was also a live album of this group. Chick then broke RTF up when Stanley Clarke quit the cult.

I like both bands and the mix here is pretty cool. This must have been released when CD's first came out because it is hard to get the "Music Magic" CD. Columbia tried to make a few bucks off us Chick fans and it worked on me. It goes back and forth between the two styles and amazingly it just fits. My guess is that was not the intention and maybe its just me. The sound on this CD is quite good as well. All in All I like it and give it 4 stars.
