Billy Cobham-Spectrum v.s. Alphonse Mouzon-Mind Transplant


Who Wins? I like them both a lot but had to go with Mind Transplant, it features more Tommy Bolin bad ass-ness and is a near perfect album with the exception of Some Of The Things People Do.


I don't expect many people to participate but oh well.

Spectrum. Mindtransplant is a good album, but Spectrum is a classic. The songwriting is the main difference.

Well, it has more to do with the title track than anything. It's become an underground "standard" over the years and has been performed and recorded in a variety of formats. I've seen several people perform that song over the years.

The production of the albums is another factor, I like the balance on Spectrum better.

I'll pull the two albums out and listen to them back to back in the next couple days, to refresh my memory.

I like the production of Spectrum better too, I think it's more Jazzy than Mind Transplant and I like both drum performances equally (I switch from one to the other, it's hard to choose). The main reason for my choosing Mind Transplant is b/c of Tommy Bolin being more prominent in that album.

I've also been looking for Love Child:The Spectrum Sessions and Fusion Jam (Bolin & Mouzon rehearsals), I've only read about them.

Although not Tommy Bolin, if you don't own this album, you need to remedy it at soon as possible. This is my favorite of those fusion/rock crossover albums from the era:


featuring a young, fiery Allan Holdsworth and some of the best drumming ever recorded.
