Please Remaster The Whole Concert
on 16 February 2012
Why doesn't Columbia-Legacy Recordings get their act together and remaster this entire concert, which they obviously have soundboard tapes of? The full concert exists and has been extensively bootlegged. You know their trucks were there and the tape was running! They released remastered editions of both "Inner Mounting Flame" and "Birds of Fire", along with the studio sketches based upon these live jams on "The Lost Trident Sessions". I saw MO live in the late fall of 1973, just before Johnny Mac broke up the band, and possess multiple sound-board recordings from their extensive '72 and '73 tours. None of the officially released studio recordings come close to capturing or reproducing the raw power and incendiary musicianship of this band seen live. The recording companies who made millions off MO "back in the day" owe both initiated and uninitiated fans, and the band itself, that much in the form of a bona fide, "official live" tribute. Come on, guys!!!!!!
