As a jazz drummer and long-time fan of Buddy Rich, I grew up listening to tracks like "Time Check" and "Nutville," hoping to someday be able to at least keep up with these incredibly demanding big band arrangements. Over the years I've picked up pretty much every Buddy Rich CD ever released, so I was surprised to come across this one in a clearance bin that I had never seen before. I was suspicious looking at the track selection and liner notes, thinking this was just a compilation of tracks from "Roar of 74" and "Big Band Machine." But after playing the tracks from this album and those albums side-by-side, I discovered that these are, in fact, entirely different recordings. The arrangements are the same and the differences are subtle,so if you already have those two albums you may not want to bother getting this one. But for Buddy Rich die-hard fans, it's cool to hear what amounts to bunch of alternate takes from those other better-known albums. The recording quality is good (not great, but equal to his other albums of this era), and the liner notes do list dates and musicians, so the packaging isn't quite as skimpy as it appears. So I'd say this is definitely worth getting if you like the bold, brash sound of Buddy's band from this era. Yes, there are a few regrettable compositions like "Ease On Down The Road," but there are 13 tracks on this CD, so the rest of them more than make up for the clunkers.

This album is fast paced and really sends ya!!! It's amazing Buddy could still play the way he did at that age.

This CD is so cool! It has the best songs. I've listened to it for hours, and I'm still not bored. My favorites are Backwoods Sideman, and being a jazzz trombonist, Tommy Medley. Try it out!

This was the first Buddy Rich album I ever bought, in fact it was one of the first albums I ever bought, period. As a young percussionist (not drummer) I was searching for some purpose for the music I was playing. Some definition of what it was to be a musician from a percussion standpoint. That definition was certainly not going to be found in mainstream music or even in classical music.
My search lead me to Buddy Rich and, by complete luck, I stumbled onto this album. It was exactly what I needed, what I wanted, what I was searching for. It showcased Buddy's enormous talent without leaving the rest of the band, and music, far behind. Too often is the case that so much emphasis is placed on Buddy that it is hard for a young percussionist to relate to Buddy and his place in the scope of the band and music. This album is very balanced, yet allows the listener to easily hear the talent of the world's greatest percussionist.
