Weather Report’s biggest-selling album is that ideal thing, a popular and artistic success and for the same reasons.

This powerhouse supergroup, comprised of Joe Zawinul, Jaco Pastorius, Wayne Shorter, Alex Acuna and Manolo Badrena, delivered their only certified-Platinum release with this killer cut. This vinyl release is 180 gram.
