A magnificent capture and performance. I have to say I loved this formation of Mahavishnu. Thank you so much for this!

I did not perceive a cut-in at the beginning of D1T3. I did, however, hear McLaughlin give band credits at the beginning of this same track. Credits for the backing performers were given as:

Steven Campbell - 1st violin
Al Sharp - 2nd violin
Marshall Westbrook - viola
Phillip Hirshi - cello
Steve Frankovic - trumpet, flugelhorn, piccolo trumpet

Nowhere did I hear credits for Bob Knapp, Steve Kindler or Carol Shive. There might have been a break in the recording in the midst of the credits announcement (I cannot tell for sure) and something might have been missed. Some clarification would be much appreciated.
