I have We Live Here which is average at best and I don't think hes on it anyways....
I wouldn't say this is his best work. It's a cool solo album and really features Mark Egan's cool melodic bass stuff. Good motivational background music...

Good place to start with Gottlieb & Metheny is the Pat Metheny Group (1978) and OffRamp (1982). These are two of my favorites. He's played on a lot more. Played a lot with Al Di Meola, Gil Evans, and a bunch of others.

I've lost track of him since the late 80's so...couldn't say much about his recent work.
