3 stars In the early nineties John McLaughlin tried to re-activate the original Mahavishnu Orchestra lineup but the problem remained with Jan Hammer who was the principal contester over writing credits. This was one main factor leading to the break-up of the initial lineup of this over talented band. Before embarking on their final tour the compositions had become increasingly complex. The lost Trident sessions reflect this enormously. Most of the tracks can be found on the live "Between Nothingness and Etenity" album. However this recording suffered from severe engineering probllems most notably with Liard's bass sound. Those familiar with this album will no doubt appreciate "The Lost Trident Sessions" it is so much more polished than Birds and Inner Mounting . How this got lost in the Columbia vaults defies my immagination. The extra tracks, I wonder, Stepping stones and John's song are a bonus for die-hard early Mahavishnu Orchestra fans. Fusion jazz at it's zenith. Go out and buy.
