Go/Go Live from Paris

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Lindsay Planer
Kudos to Hip-O Select for their top-shelf reissue of the rock/jazz fusion suites Go 1976 and companion volume Go Live From Paris 1978. Both are being made available in North America on compact disc for the first time -- albeit in a limited edition of 2,500 copies worldwide. Although usually credited to multi-instrumentalist and Berklee School of Music attendee Stomu Yamashta percussion/keyboards, these are actually collaborations with Steve Winwood piano/organ/vocals, Michael Shrieve drums, Al DiMeola guitar, Klaus Schulze synthesizer, as well as respective bassists Rosko Gee bass in the studio and Jerome Rimson bass on the Parisian live set.

Kudos to Hip-O Select for their top-shelf reissue of the rock/jazz fusion suites Go 1976 and companion volume Go Live From Paris 1978. Both are being made available in North America on compact disc for the first time -- albeit in a limited edition of 2,500 copies worldwide. Although usually credited to multi-instrumentalist and Berklee School of Music attendee Stomu Yamashta percussion/keyboards, these are actually collaborations with Steve Winwood piano/organ/vocals, Michael Shrieve drums, Al DiMeola guitar, Klaus Schulze synthesizer, as well as respective bassists Rosko Gee bass in the studio and Jerome Rimson bass on the Parisian live set. One disparity between the two is that supposedly the original Go long-player was released with the sides reversed -- meaning Side One contains the second and final part of the vast two-movement work and vice versa. When the project was taken to the stage, the anomaly was corrected and the difference is quite pronounced, especially in terms of conceptual continuity. According to the liner essay accompanying Go, there is a rather involved synchronous narrative dealing with the universal precepts of "change and polarity-fantasy and reality, death and re-birth, things changing to their opposites." But even when that level of context is removed, the listener is left with one helluva musical ensemble performing at what is by all accounts a collective peak of creativity. While the phrases art rock and prog rock give a broad generalization as to the style and substance, those terms fall short of justly or aptly defining the contents. In many ways the multi-layered and comparatively intricate Go seems as if it were an early outline for Go Live From Paris. The full-throttle jam "Windspan" -- exclusive to the concert rendering -- flanks the other extended titles "Ghost Machine," "Time Is Here," "Winner/Loser," "Crossing the Line" and "Man of Leo" to form an unqualified masterpiece whose likes would not be rivalled. The entire affair sounds pristine, thanks to remastering by Gavin Lurssen. So good in fact, one wonders if the programs could only be bested by a 5.1 or DTS incarnation.
