If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Weather Report, 5-13-1983

This is the post-Jaco edition of what many consider to be the greatest fusion band ever. I feel the rhythm section featuring Victor Bailey and Omar Hakim is able to do it more than justice. And with the ledgends of Zawinul and Shorter this version of Weather Report is still quite amazing. The sound on this is great. It must be a broadcast or soundboard.

  1. I keep coming back, year after year, to rediscover Weather Report. Most recently, I've been fascinated with the earliest incarnation of the group, when they were more abstract and out-there. However, I continue to enjoy all phases of the group, and this version of WR was the only version I got to see perform live. Looking forward to hearing this '83 vintage WR. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for posting this AZ, anyone who has any doubts about this incarnation of WR needs to hear it - fantastic - light years more enjoyable than the over-produced Domino Theory album this material would become. The Peasant never sounded better, Blue Note is a revelation and even plodding old Db Waltz is funky here. On a personal note, I have a bootleg (also mixing desk quality) of a Tokyo concert around the same time, which misses Procession and cuts out during the medley, so this has filled in some blanks. Cheers!
