Original Recordings Remastered!
This album is from a pivotal moment in McLaughlins history. This was just after he left Miles group, but before Mahavishnu Orchestra started, and the music captures this moment perfectly. This is arguably one of the finest acid rock albums of all time. McLaughlin is on fire, using fuzzboxes and phasers, over Larry Youngs swirling Hammond B-3, with Billy Rich and Buddy Miles as the rock-solid rhythm section. If you think that McLaughlins solo at the end of Right Off (from A Tribute to Jack Johnson) is one of the high points of his career, then this is the album for you. Soon after this album was recorded, McLaughlin holed up, practiced like crazy, and reemerged as Mahavishnu John McLaughlin, with both a new sound and a new band. Documenting the period just before that transition, Devotion is a complete anomaly in his catalog, as well as one of his finest achievements.
