Mahavishnu Orchestra - "The Mourning Flame of Eternal Five", 1973 [Liberated Bootleg]

Liberated bootleg CD

Audio from 1973 Performances of Mahavishnu Orchestra on ABC's In Concert, Don Kirschner's Rock Concert, and BBC In Concert.

I bought this boot in the 80's or 90's in Greenwich Village in NYC. Who titles boots? What an idiotic name they gave this one! I know that much of this is probably on Youtube or elsewhere, but I like to listen to music more than watch video of a performance. For anyone else who is so inclined, this is very worthwhile. I remember watching the stateside broadcasts of the US material back in the day, as well as seeing the MO every chance I got. What you'll hear here is a band at the peak of their powers. Very good sound throughout. I can't say what the source files might've been because this was purchased as an audio boot, but the sound doesn't disappoint. These were the days! Please support all of these great artists by purchasing their commercially released output and by paying to see them live. (from the uploader)
