original seeder's notes:

"I am sorry but I can't tell you the exact date of this show. It is most certainly 1972 and probably early in the year by the way they play the
tracks, they got shorter as the year progressed and they amassed more material.
This was the first Mahavishnu Bootleg I ever heard (about 1974) and to me it is still the best. I have managed to collect
a vast ammount of their material over the years (most of it available in downloads over the years) but to me this one has such attack and passion.
Originaly released on vinyl on the Kornyfone label, this is a rip from the Oh Boy CD.
I ripped the CD using Nero copy and turned the files to Flac using Flac Frontend. I have tested the files and they are fine.
I did circulate this CD on Traders Den about a year ago so some of you might have this already.
If not then get it.
Sound quality is a great B+ or a not bad A- depending on how good your ears are. A few bits of distortion and drop out but over all it sounds great.
The CD is taken from the vinyl as you can hear some surface noise, but hell, who cares.
Please no MP3 copies and certainly no Ebaying. I shall be watching you!!!
Download, share and enjoy.
These boys are on fire!" - unknown
