Two by the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Greatest Band Ever

Mahavishnu Orchestra
Uploaded by soulpatrol

This is Mahavishnu Orchestra Friday. Above: "You know you know." Forbidden secrets of the Mahavishnu Orchestra: Both Goodman and Jan "Miami Vice" Hammer were more melodic soloists than McLaughlin. Billy Cobham, after 30 years have passed, looks like he was the best composer. Below: "Dawn", which features, arguably, the greatest guitar solo ever. Right around 1:56 turn it to 11 and begin your air guitar pantomime. Also: Yes, I directed and produced this Broadcast video, rated at two stars which I think stands for "EX cellence." And Goddamn you Reginald Hudlin. Goddamn you and BET on J to Hell.
