Truly amazing band. John McLaughlin is one of my favorite lead players and Mahavishnu is one of my all-time favorite bands

Holy crap is Jerry Goodman on fire in that clip!
I could just sit here and watch Mahavishnu clips all evening.
There isn't much video out there, unfortunately, but there a ton of great live audio recordings of both versions of the MO.

BTW, anyone who lives in the northeastern U.S. has no excuse not to take a little roadtrip to see the Mahavishnu Project play sometime. They do a fantastic job of playing this music with the original spirit.
