Final concert of The Mahavishnu Orchestra at the Toledo University
this cassette tape of the concert is of a better quality than any others
seeded so far on either STG, EZTorrent, Dime or TTD.
There no noise reduction added and has very few audio dropouts it should
be considered an upgrade.

in 1975 while introducing the band they played a piece referred to as
"Band intro Jam" at this concert before it they played a 12 bar blues
and finish the piece and then go into the familiar riff of the
"Band intro Jam" as they are so different I made it a seperate track.

05 - Sanctuary (is one song the tape flip join is at 5'01 there is a
one second gap to seperate them)

to fill in during some technical difficulty John McLaughlin plays
"My Foolish Heart" someone in the audience doesn't like it and calls
out something and John berates the person at the end of the song

The Moog guitar syntheiser was trouble free and they play "Inner Worlds"

After "One Word" Narada plays a solo then they play a short version
of "Be Happy" and at the end of this as it was the last concert they
play "Star Spangled Banner" the tape cuts just as they are ending.

Trivia ..... the support act was..... The Jan Hammer Group

a front and back CD cover is included print and then cut off the
outer black border line the back cover is rotated to avoid printers
that by default print to fit page width.

This Mahavishnu Orchestra "Inner Worlds" 1975 line up is referred
to amongst collectors simply as MO-3

Note : I had seen the Toledo show seeded on TTD before and recently on Dime
as a remastered version I found my old tape of the show I got in 1995 and downloaded one song to see if it was better but my tape sounded cleaner I uploaded a couple of samples for some keen MO fans to compare and the
consensus was it is an upgrade it was only then I decided to transfer the cassette. So thanks to those collectors for their input.
