John McLaughlin & The Translators - Live at Painters Mill Star Theatre, Owings Mills, Maryland, U.S.A., April 22, 1982 [2CD][FLAC]

This is maybe the best live recording by John McLaughlin and The Translators that I have ever heard. Both in performance and sound quality !! John McLaughlin is a wizard on the acoustic guitar and this recording definitely shows his remarkable talent. Incredible virtuosity and lots of improvisation. The crowd goes completely wild when John plays the strings with Power, Passion & Beauty! Enjoy !!! ~Dr. Fusion
