3 stars This live album that had been recorded in 1973 became the last album as an initial work of Mahavishnu. It is ..high quality work that draws the flow of the compilation and at the same time by an initial member.. finished. The creation that they did at that time of this influences very various musicians. It is also true that Mahavishnu influenced Chick Corea. And, it talks about the remark where a variety of guitar players also admitted the nature as his leader by the interview. The performance that explodes the feelings is a content to understand whether they always offered the listener the highest performance very live.

They have gone in live of this with Central Park. They before live was done decided the band already and it had been decided to dissolve. And, after having digested live, they declared the dissolution of the band on substance. Maclaughlin completely changes the band in 1974 and works on the production of "Apocalypse". It is guessed that the decision that he gave was time of a further leap for Mahavishunu. However, it is guessed that the performance at this time was time loved most for the listener.

Initial Mahavishunu was the energy for the member age. Mahavishnu was time when the creation that Maclaughlin had done exceeded our imagination and obtained one zeal and conviction though participated in the album of Santana and Miles Davis by Maclaughlin. It talks about Maclaughlin by the interview. 「I always develop by music and have expanded. Meditation helps my life. 」He is expressed, religious limited thought and creativity are expressed by music, and his music character at that time is made an embodiment by Mahavishnu exactly.

This thought gradually develops the music character of Mahavishnu and the thought of Maclaughlin is connected in competing with Shakti.
