Some might have seen this release as a quick "cash in". Well it may have been the intention although not one likely to make a fortune!!
This final chapter of the jaw-dropping 'Mahavishnu 'One', is, at its weakest a little unsure of itself, even in this state it is still formidable. However, for much of the time it is a powerhouse. The three opening tracks are quite blistering at times. If my memory serves well, these three made up the "live" Mahavishnu CD released after "Birds of Fire"?
Okay the following 3 tracks have the "filler feeling" but they are none-the-less worthwhile. Cobham's light speed bass drums on Track 4 - "I Wonder" - nearly blow your eardrums out; it is awesome!
The sheer fire-power of this band is legendary and rightly so.
Other excellent Mahavishnus followed but none quite matched the original McLaughlin, Goodman, Hammer, Laird and Cobham line-up.
Do not miss this one!!
