Return To Forever - Where Have I Known You Before
My dad had this record dubbed on a Maxell C90 with Mahavishnu Orchestra's Birds of Fire on the other side. 'Song To The Pharoah Kings' represents a seismic shift in my consciousness because of the simplicity of the organ and mono lead intro, which transforms into a dark electric shred labyrinth. Unfortunately every time it gets really heavy, Chick Corea 'leprechauns out' with his weird elvin fantasy riffs. The Lenny White and Stanley Clarke rhythm section is an animal. Thundercat probably goes 'cyber'/'leprechaun' practicing his bass over this shit in 2011. My fusion band Trolls of Precision covers a majority of the RTF cataloge, years 1974-1977.
