This along with"Fanfare " are easily the only two tracks from Works Volume One worth owning. Great stuff!

Have always loved the ambiance of this song. It creates a great visual picture. It roars along. It is also a huge treat to see live. What a great priviledge to love this piece. Peace.

I also saw the 77 tour in New England . Without the orchestra . It was still awesome.

I saw that 77 Works tour also, but in the East without the orchestra. I've always had a love hate feeling about this piece. With this and the piano concerto my feeling at the time was that they thought they were going to Broadway next. Instead they soon landed on the beach.

I saw them in Long Beach on the Works tour in 1977. It was a great show, but before they got to California they had run out of money and had to lay off the orchestra they had been touring with. A then-unknown band named Journey opened for them.

"Who'll drink a toast with me?" to one of the best songs of all time? "You see there before you, everything you've ever dreamed." "This town is ours...TONIG H T ! "

Great job of musical imagery. Great piece. It sounds good done with the 3 piece band also. The 8 String Alembic sounds killer!

A master piece by a band that showed their talent.
