Go Live from Paris

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Lindsay Planer
The primary difference when comparing this live performance and the rendering simply titled Go 1976 is that Go Live From Paris 1978 presents the proceedings as they exist in a properly linear fashion, as correlated to the Eastern mythology that informed the extended two-part suite. This is in direct contrast to Go, which assembled the contents out of sequence. The stage show was recorded at the Palais Des Sports in Paris, France on June 12, 1976 and the recital setting allows for considerably longer and more exploratory interaction amongst Stomu Yamashta percussion/piano, Steve Winwood vocals/keyboards and Michael Shrieve drums. They are joined by legendary jazz axeman ...

The primary difference when comparing this live performance and the rendering simply titled Go 1976 is that Go Live From Paris 1978 presents the proceedings as they exist in a properly linear fashion, as correlated to the Eastern mythology that informed the extended two-part suite. This is in direct contrast to Go, which assembled the contents out of sequence. The stage show was recorded at the Palais Des Sports in Paris, France on June 12, 1976 and the recital setting allows for considerably longer and more exploratory interaction amongst Stomu Yamashta percussion/piano, Steve Winwood vocals/keyboards and Michael Shrieve drums. They are joined by legendary jazz axeman Al DiMeola guitar as well as Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel veteran Klaus Schulze synthesizer -- all of whom had contributed to Go. Filling out the band are Jerome Rimson bass, Pat Thrall guitar, Brother James congas and Karen Friedman vocals. In terms of sheer intensity, it is hard to beat DiMeola's searing leads and Winwood's blue-eyed soul on the driving "Ghost Machine," easily topping its former incarnation. "Surfspin" lands into the funky mid-tempo "Time Is Here" highlighted by Karen Friedman's expressive exchanges with Winwood, while Rimson punctuates the rhythm with some penetrating bass interjections. This is followed by the sole Winwood composition "Winner/Loser," which further exemplifies how the spontaneity of the concert yields results that best their predecessors. In fact, on the whole the material on Go sounds like a blueprint for the exceptional and inspired outing found here. The second movement commences with fairly even renditions of the trifecta "Solitude," "Nature" and "Air Voice" -- which had previously been given the name "Air Over." "Crossing the Line" is an additional zenith, spotlighted by Winwood's emotive vocals and the untamed and otherwise incendiary frenzy of fretwork courtesy of DiMeola. Clocking in just shy of a quarter-hour, "Man of Leo" provides another opportunity for the players to loosen up and fuse their collective improvisations behind DiMeola's intense soloing and the similarly seminal instrumental offerings from Shrieve, Rimson -- who is at his most melodic -- and Freidman's haunting warbles. In 2004, Hip-O Select compiled both Go and the companion Go Live From Paris 1977 on to a limited-edition of 2,500 copies two-CD set remastered by Gavin Lurssen and includes all of the original notations, lyrics and artwork within a 16-page liner booklet.
