A reason for the suits to read these reviews
on March 15, 2001
If they do, they will see that there is a cry out for more of Buddy Miles work to be released. This album is O.K., but more than anything else, it proves the old adage: "In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king". This has some of Buddy Miles' fine work. But, it simply whets the appetite for more. I'll bet that close to half the reviews of this album reference the fact that we would like more of his catalogue on disc.
The good news: The recording is great. Hearing the opening of "Them Changes" is like hearing from an old friend who has come back from school. Also, the songs are the full length versions we remember from back in the day. It is great to hear them, as is "We Got to Live Together".
The only bad news is what is missing. I would pay real money to get a copy of the Them Changes album on CD. While I did like the live version of "Down By the River", there is NOTHING like the studio version from that album. Also missed is "Hearts Delight".
Until that CD comes out, this will have to do.
