1984 Live Set on Double LP!
Featuring an 11-Minute Version of the Transcendent Hit "Rockit"!

In 1983 Herbie Hancock's glorious career in jazz (and fusion) experienced a resounding mainstream breakthrough thanks to the extraordinary success of the transcendent "Rockit," a single taken from the Grammy award-winning album Future Shock (1983) that has gone down in history as the first crossover between jazz, hip-hop, and scratching (breakdancers elected it in those years as their world anthem).

The piece, in a nearly 11-minute version, is included in the radio-originated live performance culled from a concert that the legendary keyboardist and his band — including Anton Fier, Bernard Fowler, D.ST., J.T. Lewis, Jeff Bova, and Wayne Brathwaite — held on July 24, 1984 at the Yomiuriland Open East Theatre in Tokyo. Synthesizers and electronics characterize a set that includes versions of other pieces from the Future Shock album: the title track, "Earth Beat," "Autodrive," and "Rough"; plus "Stars in Your Eyes" from Monster (1980) and the final 17 minutes' medley of "Crazy Cuts/Chameleon."
