Mahavishnu Orchestra - Live at King Biscuit Flower Hour,Buffalo, NY 27-01-73 Part I & II [Mp3]

The King Biscuit Flower Hour was a syndicated radio show presented by the D.I.R. Radio Network that featured concert performances by various rock ‘n’ roll artists. The program was broadcast weekly on Sunday nights from 1973 until 2007, although new programming ceased in 1993 and previous shows were repeated from that point. During its prime, the program was carried by more than 300 radio stations throughout the United States. The show’s name was derived from the influential blues radio show “King Biscuit Time”, which was sponsored by the King Biscuit Flour Co., and the hippie phrase “flower power”. The first show was broadcast on February 18, 1973 and featured Blood, Sweat & Tears, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Bruce Springsteen. The long-time host of the show until the mid ‘90s was Bill Minkin, whose velvet-smooth voice was the perfect blend of hipster enthusiasm and stoner casualness.

Hello Doc, what you don't know is that K.B.F.H. programs were also broadcasted by the US military radio station in Rota(Cádiz), Spain and I became an instant fan. A very nice guy from USA sent me a tape with his Mahavishnu one in a trade in 1996 (sorry, I lost his address when I moved) and lasts about 30 minutes and it's one of my favs. Best regards

Hi Doc! Always a pleasure. The recording I got lasts about 30 min, but it's great to know that a whole concert recording exists as IMHO this is Mahavishnu at its best.
