Return To Forever were at the forefront of jazz/rock fusion in the seventies and like their contemporaries Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra were formed by a former Miles Davis sideman, in this case the great Chick Corea. Return To Forever hit their commercial and artistic peak with a string of albums in the mid-seventies featuring the line-up of Chick Corea on keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, Al Di Meola on guitar and Lenny White on drums. In 2008 this classic line-up reunited for their first tour in 25 years and proved that their musicianship and the chemistry within the band were as strong as ever. This concert was filmed at Montreux in July 2008 with the bonus tracks being filmed in Clearwater, Florida later the same month.

You ask me where I've been,
Earth friend,
Searching, searching for the truth,
Reaching out listening.
Many is the time I've held him by the tail,
Only to find two feathers left,
To show there was a trail.
Yes I have been searching
Searching for the truth,
Lifting stones, listening.
Many is the time I caught him,
Locked him in a room,
Only to find the curtains waving
In the breeze.
Never smile too soon with him my friend,
Never smile too soon.
I have searched and searched
My earth friend,
Running through the centuries,
From then till now to eons past.
Many is the time he talked me round,
We even sat to dine,
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/hymn-of-th... ]
Only to find he left the room,
Before I served the wine.
Only to find he left the room,
Yes, I have been searching
For the truth earth friend.
Searching across space, in space, through time.
Many of the signs he left quickened my flow,
Again to find he left the game
A universe ago.
Thank you for asking my dearest earthly friend,
But I'm searching not today.
Look close - be aware,
The answer's in my eyes,
Face to face we met today
And I'm clearing all those lies.
Yes, truth and I we met today,
He's closer than you see.
The truth is you
The truth is me
Whether here or in the seventh galaxy
The truth is you
The truth is me
