Specialists/collaborators reviews

This compilation is where you should look for your dose of 'Go.'

Including both studio albums ('Go,' 'Go Too') and the 'Live from Paris' release, it's comprehensive and comes at a great price, generally imported from Raven Records in Australia, or second hand online. The best thing about the combination of the three albums is that you get the two most important releases from 'Go,' (being the self-titled release and the live one) along with the third as what could be considered a bonus.

'Go' itself is a good album, ranging from space-rock, jazz fusion and soundscapes, and featuring a bit of a super-group line-up that included Yamashta, Di Meola, Schultze, Shrieve and Winwood. Now, if the studio tracks didn't quite live up to the expectations set by the line-up, the performances revealed on 'Live from Paris' exceed or at east match them. Expanded versions of the pieces, with better solos and a looser feel to many of the songs, it's great stuff. Di Meola in particular is on fire.

This set also includes the 'Go Too' album, which is not at the same standard as either of its predecessors, but has some interesting moments, and should be of interest to the listener who enjoyed the first release. Having said that, I suspect that the 'Live from Paris' versions will probably get the most airtime of any on this set.

Four stars for the compilation.
