If you’re a fan of John McLaughlin’s music in general and especially of his jazz-fusion Mahavishnu Orchestra period from the 1970s, then you’re going to love this album. If you’re a Santana fan and don’t know Carlos’s music from this period so well, then this might be more of a surprise.

The differing styles of these two great guitarists meld surprisingly well, as they knew each other and played together a lot. LDS is 100% instrumental (there’s a background repetitive choral chant on one track, but this is not really a ‘song’). It’s in the same vein as some of the lengthier and more complex pieces released on Santana’s 1973 ‘Welcome’ - on which McLaughlin guested - and ‘Borboletta’ albums, and is particularly redolent of the sound on MO’s ‘Lost Trident Sessions.’

Both these musicians were during this period seeking after a higher spiritual meaning in life and devoted to the works of Sri Chinmoy (Santana later described Chinmoy as “vindictive” but said his association with the Indian had been a “good learning experience”). A spiritual intensity informs the music and it can’t be described as ‘easy listening’, but for those who appreciate the very best jazz-fusion played at a high level with virtuosity and passion, this is as good as it gets.

Fellow members of the contemporary Santana band Michael Shrieve, Doug Rauch and Armando Peraza, and McLaughlin’s fellow MO jazzmen drummer Billy Cobham and pianist Jan Hammer - described as playing ‘drums’ in the informative sleeve notes - form fine backing combos on the various tracks and make the album a kind of summit-meeting for the jazz fusion innovators of the early 1970s.

The original album came in at less than 30 minutes, but with no padding and every track a gem.

I've been a fan of the Santana album Welcome for over thirty years,but for some reason have put off buying this album for just as long. I think, probably because of John Mclaughlin's presence (despite the fact that he plays on Welcome). McLaughlin is a fine technical jazz guitarist but not really to my taste and although I've had a couple of albums by him I find a lot of his stuff unlistenable.

This,though, is different.McLaughlin's harsh tone is softened by Santana's more melllifulous sound and together they make one hell of a noise.But,I think,because of Santana,the noise is always tuneful.As previous reviewers have stated the tracks are based in part on John Coltrane's seminal work A Love Supreme and although not quite up to that standard this is still a great album. I've played it every day for the last couple of weeks,sometimes 2 or 3 times a day, and have found myself wishing I had more like it besides Welcome.I'm not so keen on track 2,Naima,an acoustic number,but A Love Supreme and Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord are simply fantastic.A spiritual album that has me wishing I was a spiritual person,but one that touches me anyway.Two guitar greats at the peak of their powers.I just wish I'd bought it thirty years ago.

The shadow of John Coltrane looms larger over this album than Miles', as it opens with 'Love Supreme' and follows with 'Naima'.
But the two guitarists - ably supported by among others Billy Cobham (drums) and Larry Young (organ) - find their own voices really fast. A great album, full of power and touching beauty, sometimes breathless and sometimes gentle, and just as satisfying in its way as the recordings of the first Mahavishnu orchestra. John McLaughlin took the spirit of the greats that had gone before him and carried it forward. Later, on the Electric Guitarist album, he asked 'Do you hear the voices you left behind?', but it was surely here he really sang for Coltrane.

In October 1972 two of the most crucial rock guitarists, Carlos Santana and Mahavishnu John McLaughlin, both following the same guru, work on a project. Firstly to extol the virtues of Indian spirituality, secondly to bring the work of Modern jazz genius John Coltrane to a rock audience. On CD it is easy to forget the whole package: The original LP ( released June 1973) had a long printed text from Sri Chinmoy with pictures of him in flowing robes embracing his two celebrity followers dressed in white. This is more than a rock album, it is call to change human consciousness. John McLaughlin and Carlos Santana also brought respected musicians from their current bands including Billy Cobham, Jan Hammer, Michael Shrieve, Larry Young. The album opens with 'A Love Supreme' - a rock re-working of John Coltrane's track 'Acknowledgement part one' from the album 'A Love Supreme' . The next track is another Coltrane composition 'Naima' . Both versions are imaginative enough, and in principle anything which turns on a rock audience to Coltrane is commendable. But the originals are too superior to be bettered. Then comes 'The Life Divine' - which is a sheer joy. Absolutely sublime, with chanting, and an exhilarating rush with both guitarists complimenting each other, with organ and percussion . Guitar anoraks have had hours of fun trying to pick out who is playing which part. Followed by another long rock out 'Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord' all fifteen minutes of it. More great guitar playing, brash and loud, and quite fierce. It is hard to think of another 'spiritual ' album which seems to embody the opposite of contemplation and introspection. Only a short acoustic track `Meditation' rounds ends the album on a quieter note. The two bonus tracks, remixes of `A Love Supreme' and `Naima' are included but are not particularly different from the original takes.
