About this album

Live (also known as Return to Forever Live) is the final album by fusion band Return to Forever. It was recorded live in New York City as part of the Musicmagic tour to support the album of the same name. This was the only tour to feature the Musicmagic lineup, which included original members Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, and Joe Farrell, along with newly added member Gayle Moran on piano and a six-piece horn section.

The original release was a single LP with a cover featuring Picasso’s Three Musicians. A greatly expanded version of the album was released in 1978 on 4 LPs (and later on compact disc) as Live: The Complete Concert, showcasing the entire two-and-a-half hour concert. This Complete Concert release contains the entireties of pieces that had been edited down for the original one LP release, including an epic version of Spanish Fantasy; the intro to which was released as “Chick’s Piano” originally. Also included are spoken introductions to songs by Clarke, including one in which he is heckled by the audience for announcing the concert’s final piece.
