Romantic Warrior is the band's bestselling, record reaching eventual sales of 500,000 copies. It was the group's first album made for Columbia Records, which may have had a positive effect on sales. This is also the first jazz-rock album by Return to Forever that was not recorded at New York City's Record Plant Studios; instead, it was recorded entirely at Caribou Ranch. It was also the first to be credited solely to Return to Forever, removing the "featuring Chick Corea" moniker. The album is more avant-garde and less funky than the band's previous album, No Mystery (1975).
