1975 Japanese 2LP Original Housed In A Gatefold Jacket With Obi And 8 Page Illustrated Booklet. First LP Appears Unplayed. If Visually Perfect $200. Second LP Has A Very Superficial Scuff That Is Inaudible. “This Is The Second Of Two Performances From February 1975 At The Osaka Festival Hall In Japan. This Is The Evening Show; The Columbia Release Agharta Was The Afternoon Show. Pangaea Is Comprised Of Two Tracks, "Zimbabwe" And "Gondwana." Each Is Divided Into Two Parts. The Band Here Is Comprised Of Sonny Fortune On Saxophones, Pete Cosey (Who Also Played Synth) And Reggie Lucas On Guitars, Michael Henderson On Bass, Al Foster On Drums, James Mtume On Percussion, And Davis On Trumpet And Organ. The Band, No Doubt Inspired By Their Amazing Performance Earlier In The Day, Comes Out Swinging, And I Mean Like Muhammad Ali, Not Benny Goodman. This Is A Take-No-Prisoners Set. Davis Seems To Be Pushing An Agenda Of "What The Hell Is Melody And Harmony? And Bring On The Funk -- And While You're At It, Pete, Play The Hell Outta That Guitar. More Drums!" If There Is Anything That's Consistent In This Free-For-All, As Everybody Interacts With Everyone Else In An Almighty Dirty Groove & Roll While Improv Is At An All-Time High, It's The Rhythmic, Or Should We Emphasize "Polyrhythmic," Invention. Mtume And Foster Are Monstrous In Moving This Murky Jam Session Along ("Zimbabwe" Is One Set, And "Gondwana" Is The Second Of The Evening) Some Surreal Lines. When Cosey's Not Ripping The Pickups Out Of His Guitar, He's Adding His Hands To Various Percussion Instruments In The Pursuit Of The All-Powerful Miles Davis' Inflected Voodoo Funk.” Thom Jurek, AMG.
