Mahavishnu Orchestra - Live at Jabberwocky, New York City, NY, USA, November 4, 1971 [FM][FLAC]


Got this in a snail mail trade years ago. I think I'm right in saying that this is the earliest live recording of the Mahavishnu Orchestra known to exist and the setlist is interesting as, despite this being such an early performance, it features a couple of tracks that weren't released until the second album.  Actually, I'm not even sure that track 3 is "Dream", but it sounds quite like it so I'm assuming it's some sort of prototype version.  If I'm wrong and anyone else knows what it is, please tell me.  Although this is a radio broadcast the sound isn't perfect but it's still very listenable.  Enjoy!
