    ok, i fully realize that maybe only 2 other people have this album, but what the heck :D

    anyway, ive had this album for a while and it kills. but, i just picked up a nm copy off ebay and it came in today. it still had the original promo insert in it with a description of the band. it turns out the bass player (eric mccann) was only 17 at the time :eek: he plays some amazing stuff on this album. i cant believe he isnt on more albums.

    so, if you havent heard this and dig 70's fusion, check your local used record bins!

    I still have a tape of it around somewhere. I liked it a lot when it came out but haven't listened to it for years.

    Mingo had just left Santana when he recorded it, anyone who likes Santana's fusion recordings would probably enjoy it..if they could find a copy :rolleyes:

    Well, if anyone;s interested, Audiophile Imports now carries a remastered CD version of "Flight Never Ending" released in 2007 and remastered.

    Wondering whatever became of Eric McCann, he could lay down some serious funk at such a young age!

    I wouldn't mind having it...at this time, other "imports" are higher up the ladder.

    And since you guys seem like you're into the arcane stuff..
    Any have Manola Badrena's album (IIRC, Jaco is on 1) track
