Mahavishnu Orchestra - Inner Mounting Flame Inner Mounting Flame
Jazz Used - LP KC 31067 Columbia
1971 Original With The Hard To Find Pink Insert. “This Is The Album That Made John McLaughlin A Semi-Household Name, A Furious, High-Energy, Yet Rigorously Conceived Meeting Of Virtuosos That, For All Intents And Purposes, Defined The Fusion Of Jazz And Rock A Year After Miles Davis' Bitches Brew Breakthrough. Though Much Was Made Of The Influence Of Jazz-Influenced Improvisation In The Mahavishnu Band, It Is The Rock Element That Predominates, Stemming Directly From The Electronic Innovations Of Jimi Hendrix. The Improvisations, Particularly McLaughlin's Post-Hendrix Machine-Gun Assaults On Double-Necked Electric Guitar And Jerry Goodman's Flights On Electric Violin, Owe More To The Freakouts That Had Been Circulating In Progressive Rock Circles Than To Jazz, Based As They Often Are On Ostinatos On One Chord. These Still Sound Genuinely Thrilling Toda, As McLaughlin And Goodman Battle Jan Hammer's Keyboards, Rick Laird's Bass, And Especially Billy Cobham's Hard-Charging Drums, Whose Jazz-Trained Technique Pushed The Envelope For All Rock Drummers. There Is Also Time Out For Quieter, Reflective Numbers That Are Drenched In Studied Spirituality ("A Lotus On Irish Streams") Or Irony ("You Know You Know"); McLaughlin Was To Do Better In That Department With Less-Driven Colleagues Elsewhere In His Career. Aimed With Absolute Precision At Young Rock Fans, This Record Was Wildly Popular In Its Day, And It May Have Been The Cause Of More Blown-Out Home Amplifiers Than Any Other Record This Side Of Deep Purple.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.Appears Unplayed.... more details

Mahavishnu Orchestra - Apocalypse Apocalypse
Jazz New - LP KG 32957 Columbia
Sealed 1974 Original With Custom Artist Hype Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. Pristine Copy. “The First Recording Of The Second Mahavishnu Orchestra Was A Real Stretch For John McLaughlin, An Encounter With Michael Tilson Thomas And The London Symphony Orchestra. The Union Wasn't Taken Seriously At The Time, And It Ended Up Harming The Reputation Of Thomas -- A Remarkably Adventurous Young Conductor Who Defied The Stuffy Classical Powers-That-Be And Thus Probably Delayed His Eventual Rise To The Top -- More Than Mclaughlin. But Those With Ears, Then And Now, Beheld A Remarkable Series Of Pieces That Neatly Juxtapose And Occasionally Combine The Combustion Of Mclaughlin's Group With Rich, Tasteful Symphonic Statements Orchestrated For McLaughlin By Michael Gibbs. The New Mahavishnu-Ites, Electric Violinist Jean-Luc Ponty And Keyboardist/Vocalist Gayle Moran, Have Their Moments, But The Real Focus Of This Disc Is The Quality Of The Symphonic Conceptions And How Well McLaughlin Blends His Lyrical And Fiery Guitar Into The Mixture. The Best Stretch Is The Breathtakingly Ethereal Opening Of "Hymn To Him"; The Promise Of Fusing Rock, Jazz, And Classical Elements Had Never Been Executed So Alluringly Before -- And Wouldn't You Know, An Old Experienced Hand At Introducing Classical Textures Into Rock, The Beatles' George Martin, Is The Producer. Don't Let Old, Outworn Preconceptions On Either Side Of The Fence Prevent You From Checking Out This Beautiful Record.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.... more details

Mahavishnu Orchestra - Visions Of The Emerald Beyond Visions Of The Emerald Beyond
Jazz Used - LP PC 33411 Columbia
Beautiful 1975 Gatefold Original. “Jean-Luc Ponty's Curling Electric Violin Lines Help Give This Mahavishnu Band A More European Sound Than Its Predecessor, And Some Of The Orchestral Concepts Of Apocalypse Work Their Way Into The Picture Via Comments By A String Trio And Trumpet/Sax Duo. This Band Also Had Some Interest In A Bombastic Funk Direction That May Have Been Borrowed From Mr. "Chameleon" Herbie Hancock, And Would Later Be Followed By Mahavishnu Two's Drummer, Michael Walden. Gayle Moran's Ethereal Vocals Don't Date As Badly As Those On Many Jazz-Rock Records; At Least She Can Sing. Overall, This Mahavishnu Edition Is More Refined And Not As Aggressive As The First -- Although They Could Charge Ahead Pretty Hard, As "Be Happy" And "On The Way Home To Earth" Demonstrate -- Yet They Were Still Capable Of Making Memorable Electric Music.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.... more details
