A killer chapter in the great early run of Buddy Miles
– really genre-busting work that managed to cross over big to a number of crowds back in the day! As with his Mercury work, Miles
has a wicked mix of soul, funk, rock, and blues going on here – but one that's percolated together strongly, so that it's not just a cribbing of famous styles – and instead comes across as something really new in the process – kind of a fresh vibe for all the cats who were willing to cross the tracks and change things up in their music at the time. Johnny Bristol handles production for the set, but it's still got the heavy groove you'd find on earlier Miles
records – and the album features guest appearances from Carlos Santana, plus Latin percussion luminaries Wille Bobo and Victor Pantoja. Titles include "LA Resurrection", "Life Is What You Make It (parts 1 & 2)", "Elvira", "Hear No Evil", "Love Affair", "Visions", and "Crossfire".
