5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't get any better than this, 12 Jun. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Complete Columbia Albums Collection (Audio CD)
The original line up's three studio albums are here (The Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire & Lost Trident Sessions), remastered versions & all reviewed elsewhere on Amazon, not a lot needs to be said about them, pretty much seminal recordings from first to last song. I would point out that the Inner Mounting Flame has a bonus track, The Noonward Race, live from Mar Y Sol festival in 1972, this version is one of the most intense things I've ever heard them play.

The two real gems here are the remastered Between Nothingness & Eternity & the accompanying live bonus disc (over an hour of unrealeased music). The 1973 live album now sounds absolutely stunning, the bass & drums now come to the fore & there are riffs which seem to have been omitted from the original release, an astounding live album. The bunus disc is it's equal, if that's possible & we're treated to great live versions of Hope, Vital Transformation, One Word, Steppings Tones, Awakening & The Dance of Maya. I'm not one for bleating on so if you like the Mahavishnu Orchestra, you will love this - staggering from start to finish.
