Killer stuff. I prefer the guitarist before Al D., one Bill Connors. Here he is on a Stanley Clarke solo album from 1974, right after he left RTF. Personally, I think it's one of the most outstanding guitar solos ever recorded. Skip to about the 1 minute mark for when it's starts to slowly boil-

I used to play that tune in a band. We also did "Beyond The Seventh Galaxy".

"The Romantic Warrior" was a innovative and inspirational album.

The first time I heard Dave Weckl was on a Bill Connors album. I can't recall the name but it was the first in a series of three trio albums. I think DW was only on the first.

Lenny is killing it during Chick's solo. Al's articulation is first rate.

Never forget the first time I saw these guys. I had no idea what to expect. Man was I blown away.

Incredible tune!! Saw them when Romantic Warrior came out in '76 on a double bill with Weather Report in Chicago. They were both terrific!!!

The fact that Al was like 21yo in that video is beyond nuts.

Can't go wrong with RTF. Such stellar playing by all them.
