180 gram high-quality double vinyl set.

"This recording of the final set at the Warfield Theatre brings to full circle the amazing advent of The Mahavishnu Orchestra In 1971, and its renaissance this night in San Francisco." mused the boundary-shattering guitarist John McLaughlin. On his farewell tour of America, which comprised of 25 concerts, John invited one his favourite musician, guitarist Jimmy Herring and his band "The Invisible Whip" to explore the timeless music he had created four decades ago.

'Live in San Francisco' - a souvenir of a sold-out concert at the historic Warfield Theatre, a beloved venue last visited by John McLaughlin thirty six years ago. In the 4th Dimension - Ranjit Barot (drums, konokol), Gary Husband (keyboards, drums), and Etienne M'Bappé (bass) and in The Invisible Whip - Kevin Scott (bass), Matt Slocum (Clavinet and B3), Jason Crosby (Fender Rhodes, violin, vocals) and Jeff Sipe (drums) - The Meeting of the Spirits tour featured a 9-piece orchestra that further amplified the seminal music he created in the 70's, documented in albums - 'Birds of Fire', 'Inner Mountain Flame' and 'Visions of Emerald Beyond'.

So connected are the nine members that the interplay approaches telepathic levels, making for powerfully evocative performances without any wasted gestures. Long-time fans will be thrilled to hear favourites like "Eternity's Breath" (from Mahavishnu's 1973 Visions of Emerald Beyond) and "Trilogy" (from 1973's Between Nothingness And Eternity) re-examined through the lens of both the bands' unparalleled sensitivity and astounding power.
