The Mahavishnu Orchestra The Inner Mounting Flame on Colored 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso / Pressed at RTI
The music of The Mahavishnu Orchestra's The Inner Mounting Flame burns from the very first note to the last and the wealth of ideas, sheer vitality and supreme soloistic virtuosity of the five top-notch musicians from four different countries is absolutely first class here from guitar virtuoso John McLaughlin (Miles Davis) to Billy Cobham (drums), Jan Hammer (keyboards), Jerry Goodman (violins) and Rick Laird (bass). Brilliantly fusing rock, jazz, blues and classical grooves into a masterful progressive work, tracks like "Meeting Of The Spirit," "The Dance Of Maya" and "You Know You Know," are just a few of the highlights from this pioneering 1971 debut and it's still amazingly fresh and innovative over 45 years later.
