Recorded in 1975, this is the original Groove Merchant recording of a jazz-funk orchestra loaded with heavyweight soloists. Big Band Machine CD music Indeed, it is as fine a modern band as Rich ever dished out. Big Band Machine buy CD music The disc is not as good as the Japanese P-Vine version, which has two bonus tracks and the original artwork.

A "Killer Force"
You will find 4 of these tracks on the old LRC release titled "Ease On Down The Road", but they are different takes. The cuts included here are superior in performance, and the sound quality is as good as can be expected considering the recording. Being a huge BR fan, I've bought up most of the CD reissues over the years. It is clear to me that the Sonny Lester recordings pale in quality to anything recorded for Verve, Pacific Jazz, or RCA. That is the main reason I give this a 4 star rating. The Beast Retro Series has proven to be the best quality reissues of these recordings to date. The packaging is also a leap forward, with complete band personnel credits and decent liner notes. You'll find the definitive version of "Three Day Sucker" here. Other standouts are the 11-minute "Tommy Medley" and the beautiful "Pieces Of Dreams". This release is well worth the asking price. Get it while you can!

The Lloyd Michels Band with Buddy Rich
The story behind this edition of the Buddy Rich Band is well-chronicled, and it was short lived - Buddy fired everybody in it (save a few he took back) in Denver CO and never looked back. Suffice it to say that this recording is a historical curiosity not essential to any BR collection. Pleasant enough charts (none of which survived to be recorded by any subsequent Rich big band). Three Day Sucker is the reason I bought it for my collection, primarily because of the dynamic use of single strokes by Buddy on his ending solo, and for the bizarre Tommy Medley - you'd have to be an expert on that insufferable rock opera to know where the various pieces come from. Interesting, nonetheless, even if obscure. Sound quality is below par, as recorded by Sonny Lester, then with his Groove Merchant label. I felt the same way about his earlier recordings of the Thad Jones Mel Lewis Orchestra, by the way. Buddy's drums sound, for the most part, tight and uninteresting, something I'd never noticed before, except on the disastrous Speak No Evil LP (RCA) which has thankfully been long out-of-print (hopefully someone burned the tapes). If you are a fanatic for BR, buy it just to have it. Otherwise, go find an import copy of Buddy Rich Plays and Plays and listen to the band he felt was his best. Lastly, I think the West Side Story Medley on this date is simply awful. My verdict: 3 Stars is a gift. There are moments on this CD where everything comes together, but they are few and far between.
