"Power, Passion and Beauty" - The Special Edition eBook 2013

Welcome to those of you reading Power, Passion and Beauty - Special Edition eBook 2013.

(Click on the book to see a Mahavishnu Orchestra slideshow.) These are images not in the eBook due to eBook formatting constraints and file transferring costs. Many additional and rare images are also found in the original printed version of the book, which is still easily obtainable. (Note: The original print version will not have the updated text.) Many previously unpublished images of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and John McLaughlin, are also found in my book Follow Your Heart - John McLaughlin song by song. Amazon created its own eBook version of Power, Passion and Beauty. It may contain all of the original images, but does not include the updated text. (All images contained in this slideshow, unless otherwise indicated, are copyrighted.  All rights are reserved for the owners of these copyrights.)


Mahavishnu Orchestra fan Kirk Hoeflich came across these pictures he took of the Mahavishnu Orchestra in Waterbury, CT back in the day and kindly sent them this way.

This is a very interesting shot kindly provided by the courtesy of Rich Zimmermann. The picture was taken in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at SummerFest on July 23, 1972.  Mahavishnu road manager Elliott Sears can be seen to the right. The two gentlemen behind John's guitar happen to be Robbie Krieger and Ray Manzarek of the Doors. Later that day, the Doors would perform their very last concert after the death of Jim Morrison. Rich Zimmermann's collection of fantastic rock images, including more Mahavishnu and other subjects, can be found at Rich Zimmermann Photography.

The poster for the infamous double-bill of It's A Beautiful Day and The Mahavishnu Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. IABD had a hit song, White Bird, and was the headliner of the show. The up and coming Mahavishnu Orchestra was a last minute addition. Mahavishnu opened the show and blew many in the audience away. So much so, that half of them emptied onto the streets before IABD came on. While this shocked IABD, news of the event spread like wildfire and Mahavishnu was on its way to Rock Stardom.  The more detailed story is found in the updated 2013 version eBook version of Power, Passion and Beauty.
(Thanks to Ted McCallion)

This is a ticket from the first ever Mahavishnu Orchestra show outside of its  original run at the Gaslight nightclub. Note that the ticket advertises John McLaughlin only and that the concert cost just $1.50. Please also note, "McLaughlin" was misspelled ;-)
(Private collection of former Mahavishnu Orchestra road manager Elliott Sears.)

ALSO NEW from Elliott's private collection!

Nat Weiss, the business manager of the original Mahavishnu Orchestra and help to me when working on the original edition of the book, died on July 30, 2013.

Trumpeter Randy Brecker was kind enough to send some photographs he took of Mahavishnu II while he was seated in the front row at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City. When John McLaughlin first came to the United States, he spent some time staying at Randy's apartment. (Click on his images for a larger view.)

My friend and collaborator artist Chris Poisson died in 2010. Chris was a very talented person. He designed the covers of several of the Mahavishnu Orchestra albums including Birds of Fire, Apocalypse and Visions of the Emerald Beyond. When I decided to write Power, Passion and Beauty in 2005, I looked him up and asked if he would do the honor of designing the book's cover.

Chris Poisson

We went on to market some fine prints of his art and he even realized his unique Mahavishnu font, (SEE BELOW) designed for the band's album covers, had value all these years later. It can now be purchased commercially. He never failed to help me on other projects over the years despite his personal difficulties. I will always be indebted to him.

(In tribute, Chris Poisson's beautiful birds of fire soar through this page's space.)

The Mahavishnu Orchestra Gig List

(Image courtesy of Mark Chapman)

(Attention: In the coming months, this gig list will be greatly expanded. We have gained access to a fantastic and exclusive new resource which will add dozens and dozens of newly verified gigs. )

This Gig List, the most comprehensive ever compiled for the original Mahavishnu Orchestra, has been put together with the help of many, including Elliott Sears, Graham Crawford, Ted McCallion, Rod Sibley, Jeff Frank, Mark Robinson and others. If you would like to question an entry or add one, please contact me through this site. (Note: I did not have editing control over this list for the last couple of years. If you sent me proof of a new listing, and do not see it added, please contact me again. - Walter)

Question marks appear after entries to which there is some doubt or not full proof. For instance, it has been proven that some records from Dinky Dawson and Wolfgang's Vault, despite their best intentions, have been incorrect. Unfortunately much information tracks back to them and is spread exponentially. Also, some of the support acts are iffy. For example, the managers of Mahavishnu believe The Section only opened for Mahavishnu on the West Coast. However, some believe the band opened elsewhere as well.

Any verifiable proof that will allow the removal of any question marks from this list is greatly appreciated.
