AllMusic Review by

Drummer Billy Cobham became a star during his tenure with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. His output during the '70s was inconsistent, but he did record two fusion classics, Spectrum and Crosswinds, which are both well represented here. There are also good selections from Total Eclipse, A Funky Thide of Sings and Live on Tour in Europe. Recommended for the casual listener, but fans seeking a deeper understanding of this drumming genius are encouraged to explore Cobham's expansive discography.
