Mahavishnu Orchestra - Live at Montreal Forum, Montreal, Canada, July 13th, 1973 [SBD]

This show came originally labeled as: Montreux Jazz Festival 20-Aug-72. I and others are sure this is not Montreux but in fact "Montreal Canada July 13, 1973" the opening date of the 'Between Nothingness & Eternity tour' where they recorded the live LP in New York a month later. This used to be traded amongst collectors as "unknown USA 8/1973". The song list is nothing like they played or even the way they played some of the songs in August 1972. A lot of people think the title of "Montreux" is correct but I am sure it isn't so now it will be one of those shows where collectors have to adjust their thinking when people list it and I guess it will remain a mystery until the records at the radio station archives can be checked. A French Canadian saying a show is "Montreal" to a non-French speaking person can easily be misunderstood to have said "Montreux" which is how I think the mistake happened. Also circulates as Johnson Gym, Albuquerque, NM, 1-Aug-73. (from the uploader)
