      While there is still some reticence on the part of the players to really open up about their time in Mahavishnu, there is a lot of candid comments from all the key players and everyone you could possibly want to hear from *is* heard from on some level. This is an absolute no-brainer for fans. "It`s about time somebody wrote a book about the Mahavishnu Orchestra! Starting in 1971 and lasting in one form or another for five years, the MO exploded onto the popular music scene while simultaneously trashing all existing conventions, forging a new direction that is still controversial to this day. The loudest and fastest band in the entire world, the MO literally could ?scare? people ? yet also could create music of great beauty. While the volatility of the music and the pressure of sudden, unexpected fame would extinguish the Mahavishnu Orchestra?s flame, the band?s powerful influence lives on today in classical, jazz, rock, hip-hop, rap, progressive rock, world, heavy and death-metal, jam band and even country music landscapes. All five members of the original band, John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham, Jan Hammer, Jerry Goodman and Rick Laird, cooperated with the author. In addition, over 100 people, including some of the world?s greatest musicians and artists, provide comments exclusive to this book. The book also contains many rare and never before seen images that capture the spirit of the band and its times." [Abstract Logix]
