This one of best albums I ever heard. Jeff has a incredible melodic sense, it's not about playing "ups and downs scales". And he's very well accompained by Mr. Jan Hammer, who worked with John McLaughlin and the wonderful Mahavishnu Orchestra. Simply FIVE STARS!

An amazing record, just great. When i first got this album i thought it a lot of Jan Hamer's parts were Jeff Beck playing, but after listening to it more thouroughly you can hear the difference. This is great Jazz-rock fusion, and you must have missed something because 'Goodbye Pork Pie Hat' is amazing.

While JB doesn't consider his 70s 'fusion' experiments to be very good (at least that's what he says in interviews) this is an excellent recording -- even though it sounds a bit dated, considering what music was like in 1976 this was a breath of fresh air at the time. This record contains the classic tunes "Led Boots", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", and the killer "Blue Wind" Get this one.
