I didn't know the Gurus were known in the US! Great band - love their retro hippy drippy tracks like Like Wow Wipeout and Miss Freelove 69.


A digression but Oz also had our own version of Weather Report, a band called Crossfire http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ji32gcXyZE ... I once saw their drummer playing in another fusion band at a tiny bar. I counted nine people in the audience - all looked like musos. He was incredible, playing Billy Cobham fills verbatim ... amazing to see world class musicians in such an intimate close-up environment.
