Mahvishnu Orchestra Birds Of Fire on Limited Edition 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at AcousTech & Pressed at RTI
1972 was an incredible year for John McLaughlin (guitar), Jan Hammer (keyboards), Billy Cobham (drums), Jerry Goodman (violin) and Rick Laird (bass). As the Mahavishnu Orchestra, these five multi-talented musicians not only made up one of the first classic jazz/rock fusion outfits, but they also delivered the masterpiece Birds Of Fire, one of the more successful albums of that year, catapulting them into the upper rungs on the album charts.
Birds Of Fire truly culminates the collective geniuses of these five players led by the haunting guitar licks of John McLaughlin into territories rarely heard and not seen since. Kicking things off with the mesmerizing title track "Birds Of Fire," followed by McLaughlin’s tribute to Miles Davis with "Miles Beyond," the listener is consistently rewarded here by the stunning and powerful musical collaborations of this superstar quintet.
Friday Music is very proud to announce the 180 Gram Vinyl Series release of Birds Of Fire by The Mahavishnu Orchestra mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at AcousTech, and pressed painstakingly by RTI.
