    HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVYWEIGHT funk-jazz fusion from the mid-seventies golden era of the Headhunters on this super-rare live double album featuring amazing psychedelic cover art from Nobuyuki Nakanishi that was previously only ever released in Japan in 1975 - making the original one of the hardest Herbie Hancock albums to find.

    Includes beautifully recorded unique versions of classic Headhunters tracks such as Chameleon, Butterfly, and Hang Up Your Hang Ups that actually manage to surpass the quality of album versions! This album really is that good!

    The line-up says it all - Herbie Hancock, Bennie Maupin, Paul Jackson, Mike Clark, Bill Summers, and Blackbird McNight! All at the top of their game and all completely on fire! Wow!

    A secret gem of mid-seventies jazz funk that crowns the genre! An absolutely essential purchase for any Headhunters fan!

    ESSENTIAL!
