Two early owned albums of mine, very exieting they both felt. Quite exotic and adventourus and exieting they feel. Both start energetic but finds a confident stride throughout.á

Two superstrong albums. Emerald is quite underrated compared to Mirage imo. Both stellar albums with loads of elememts to learn from.

John McLaughlin liked the Mahavishnu Orchestra so much he said let's do it again.

Visions is indeed underrate; such is the fate of following the likes of Flame and Birds. That said, I'm still going with my #1Camel LP.

Sad to say, Mahavishnu' generally bores me. Mirage is as solid as it gets.

I love both albums, for very different reasons. That being said, my vote goes to Mirage.

Horrified VotEB is trailing so badly.   Then again I've never been a big Camel fan, so . . .

Mahavishnu.   Great and overlooked record.
