Reply I have this on vinyl LP. One of my all-time favorites. Reply simply one of the greatest guitar solos of all-time. Reply Go live in Paris , after all this years still awsome. Al plays with a huge drive. taking my breath away Reply I bought the albums Go and Go To when I was young and now I am 57! Then they were fantastic and now they still are. Reply @Beadbud5000 yES Reply yes Reply I purchased this one when it was newly released. Still an album I return to, time and again. Di Meola just rips it. Reply היו ימים Reply Actually that's me , Pat Thrall, taking the solo on this amazing song. It was one of the best nights of my life playing with this incredible group. I can't tell you how emotional we all were at the end of the song. It brought Winwood to tears. Bad ass Al Dimeola played all the other solos. Reply This is one of the great songs of all time. Reply This was one of those nights when a band comes of age Live in Paris! Winwood on vocals and Pat Thrall on guitar showing Dimeola the difference in jazz and rock!!! I proud I was involved! Reply This song blew me away in76". I always thought it was Al Dimeola, and I wasnt into him. Had I known it was Pat Thrall I probably would have searched out his music. which I will do now…. Reply I have a 12inch single of this after hearing John Peel play it on release, blew my 15 year old mind Reply this really is the best guitar solo ever,step aside ..Hendrix, Clapton,Beck,Page etc..Zappa not included!!! different level altogether !!!! just never get tired of listening to it!! Pat Thrall most underrated guitarist ever! thanks. Reply Always loved this song!!!!! I bought the album back when it first came out because of the players…one of the best musical treasures I ever uncovered!!!! Thank you!!! Reply sounds like Traffic.. maybe the band members did some switching? Reply When I heard this song in 1976 I was hooked on Al di Meola for life. Aleady was a great fan of Santana's Mike Shrieve, Tangerine Dream's Klaus Schulze and Winwood's Spencer Davis group/Traffic. Reply Most Excellent , Thank you ! really awesome. ; – ) LOVE … ! Peace. Reply Steve Winwood… Al Di Meola,,,,Michael Shreive,,,are you kidding ,,Full shred for sure Reply No cabe duda que se volaron la barda estos cabrones. De principio a fin es toda una obra maestra,sobre todo Crossing the line.Sin la música sobre todo de ésta altura,la vida no tendría sentido Reply Haven't heard this in years. Pat Thrall's solo still gives me the same chills that it gave me when a good friend of mine turned me onto this album in 1976. I became aware of him when he and Michael Shrieve were in Automatic Man. I have no idea what happened to my copy of this project. I probably wore it out. LOL!!! Reply Been one of my favourites since I was about 9 years old. Hadn't heard it for a few years and came here to find the link to share with my darling Strapper. Reply SOUNDS OF SUMMER 1976……JUST A YOUNG PUP!….MY AWAKENING TO THE GUITARS SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT…..NEVER TURNED BACK!…STILL PLAYING Reply I just wish there was video of this show. Reply The guitarists solo sounds like Jimmy page? Reply Psychedelic masterpiece! Reply ….out of time Reply This sounds more jimmy page than jimmy page Reply Everytime I hear this song… EVERY SINGLE TIME… I'm brought to tears. Amazing Reply God wrote this song and put together a super group to play it Reply Listened to that guitar solo for 40 odd years and it still gives me a buzz Reply Anyone out there who came across this unbelievable combination of gentleman going about their business consider yourselves fortunate to experience their unbridled musicianship. Carry On gentleman. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
