Weather Report - Mysterious Traveller download album


Artists : Weather Report Genre : Amazing Jazz Fusion Year : 1974 In my opinion this is the brilliantest Weather Report album even without the legend Jaco.

Mysterious Traveller is the fourth studio album of Weather Report and was released in 1974. This album marked the end of bassist Miroslav Vitouš's tenure with the band. Vitouš was replaced by Alphonso Johnson. Another addition to the line-up is drummer Ishmael Wilburn. Greg Errico was the drummer for the tour between the previously released Sweetnighter and this album, but declined an invitation to be a permanent member of the band.

Mysterious Traveller also appears on the Weather Report compilation album This Is Jazz, Vol. 10 and various artists compilation Meltdown: The Birth of Fusion. 5. Blackthorn Rose (Shorter) 5:00. As part of Weather Report, his playing has often been overshadowed by the formidable keyboard presence of Zawinul, yet he, more than anyone else in the unit, is responsible for the band’s individual personalit. awinul seems to be steering Report into a landscape of his own imagination, something that may not ultimately be compatible with Shorter’s lyrical abilities. One thing is indisputable: both men show no sign of creative stagnation and, because of this, Weather Report remains one of the most seminal small ensembles of the day. ★★★★. Marv Hohman, Down Beat, November 7, 1974.

Very very interesting! I didn't know all this!I'm not a maniac collector, I just collect the music I like, with no specific requirements on edition (well I prefer the oldest available for a reasonable price, max 10$), or sleeve quality... but I do care about the vinyl not having scratches :)Thank you for the information and reference!

Incidentally, my copy is 1B/1B, so we know California ran both sides with their first stampers. That, of course, assumes that the information gathered here for the Bob Dylan release remained the case for the full duration of Columbia's existence. https://londonjazzcollector.wordpress.com/record-labels-guide/columbia-records/understanding-columbia-matrix-numbers/

Current understanding of the Columbia matrix numbers suggest that A-C are the 1st prints from the three different pressing plants (A = Indiana, B=California, C=New York) but when an initial stamper had to be scrapped for quality control they would go to D, E, F etc. but this was not done consistently (eg. Indiana goes to D, California goes to E, New York goes to F). Instead it looks like it just happened differently on every release depending on who was in charge of etching that day. So sometimes you'll see 1A backed with 1B, sometimes 1As backed with 1Ds and in your case, a 1C backed with 1D.I would suspect yours is a first print from New York that comes from the end of the 1st stamper on Side 2 but from early in the 2nd stamper for Side 1. Also possible that New York had to scrap the 1st stamper for Side 1 entirely from the start - only way to know would be to find a 1C/1C.
