"...Thirty years on, he's an underappreciated national treasure." - Rating: B+
Mojo (Publisher) - 1/99, p.102
"...through four decades he has been the living embodiment of innovative exploration in black roots music....His frazzled rasping voice is unique, his picking on guitar and banjo a ragged delight..."

Product Description:

IN PROGRESS & IN MOTION 1965-1998 features both classic and rare, previously unreleased recordings.
Personnel includes: Taj Mahal, The Pointer Sisters.
Compilation producers: Lawrence Cohn, Taj Mahal.
Recorded between 1965 and 1996. Includes liner notes by David Ritz and Louise "Didji" Howard.
IN PROGRESS AND IN MOTION 1965-1998 is Taj Mahal's first career spanning retrospective and demonstratres not only the depth but the volume of this New York City-born blues legend's ouevre. Weighing in at a hefty three discs, there are 54 songs featured here, including 15 (mostly live tracks) that had never been released before. IN PROGRESS AND IN MOTION features performances taken from the television program "Austin City Limits" as well as studio work with the Rising Sons, a band that included multi-instrumentalist, Ry Cooder. There are also five live tracks where Mahal is accompanied by The Pointer Sisters, and a version of "We Gonna Rock" recorded at the Fillmore West with Boz Scaggs and Elvin Bishop. Of all the classic Mahal performances here, perhaps the most wrenching is "Leaving Trunk," which was pulled from the now-legendary television special The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus.
