3 stars This album introduced me to Mahavishnu. It is entirely composed of tracks that did not appear on any of their studio albums. And if they hadn't unearthed the studio sessions 2O years later, this might have been essential, even considering its flimsy sound. In a way it represents the pinnacle of the first Mahavishnu group and their playing never was tighter then this.

But hearing it back now for the first time in 10 years and also for the first time since I heard The Trident Sessions, the improvisations sound a tad too long-winded, not focused enough really. It's still an impressive live document from an amazing and unique band, but rather then a general recommendation, it's just an item fans will want to seek out.
