Mahavishnu

LP (Item 542302) Warner, 1984 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Mahavishnu Orchestra — Mahavishnu ... CD 10.99

A very electric set from guitarist John McLaughlin – a date that has the leader playing a host of modern variations on the instrument, plus a synclavier as well – but always with the sense of creative imagination he brought to Mahavishnu work in years past! There's some slight undercurrent of earlier spirituality in the tunes, but the overwhelming vibe is that of 80s fusion modes – played in the company of Mitchell Forman on Fender Rhodes and other keyboards, Jonas Hellborg on electric bass, Bill Evans on tenor, and Billy Cobham on drums. Titles include "Radio Activity", "Jazz", "The Unbeliever", "Pacific Express", and "East Side West Side".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Apocalypse
Columbia, 1974. Near Mint-
A big change of sorts for Mahavishnu Orchestra – a record that has the group actually acting like the larger ensemble promised in their name!

Mahavishnu Orchestra

Visions Of The Emerald Beyond
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Very spacey work from Mahavishnu Orchestra – a set that continues the change in sound explored by the second incarnation of the group – one that's much more spacious than the first! The group here is somewhat large, but often comes off with a good sense of leanness at times – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mahavishnu Orchestra

Between Nothingness & Eternity
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint-
There's a pretty big space between Nothingness & Eternity – but Mahavishnu Orchestra manage to fill most of it up with their hard-jamming approach! The style here is a bit different than the group's initial albums – as the record's a live one, and features some very long tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold
Smooth jazzy work from Deodato – a record that takes off from his electric keyboard work of the early 70s, and shows his growing interest in modern soul and R&B a the time! Deodato's still a few years way from some of his famous soul production work, but he's already got a great ear for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Love Island
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
Late 70s work from Deodato – quite different than his bossa organ work of the 60s, and early 70s funk sides – but pretty darn great nonetheless! The album shows Deodato's continuing shift towards a more soul-based sound – and it mixes together a smoother club sound with jazzier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Larry Carlton

Sleepwalk
Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
A real gem from guitarist Larry Carlton – a set that's very jazzy, but which also shows the strong focus he'd developed on his rock session work in the 70s – including some famous recordings with Steely Dan! There's a sharpness to Carlton's guitar that cuts through some of the sleepier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Return Of The 5000 Lb Man
Warner, 1975. Very Good
A beautiful late chapter in the jazz journey of Rahsaan Roland Kirk – and an album of subtle genius that's really opened up to us over the years! The setting here isn't as "hit you over the head" as on some of Kirk's Atlantic Records – because at one level, the tunes are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Kirkatron
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
Later genius from Rahsaan Roland Kirk – a record of wonderful depth and soul, and a session that moves back to the straighter jazz focus of some of his work from the Mercury years – yet still keeps all the personality and charm of the best Atlantic sides! Roland's playing in a warm ... LP, Vinyl record album
