Number 867 - Mahavishnu

Number 867




How many artists today, release an album with just 3 songs on it? Let alone 2 sides of an LP vinyl record! Mahavishnu album, "Between Nothingness and Eternity" was released way baaaaaack in '73 featured the 21 minute epic "Dream" taking up the whole of side 2! (Its one of those songs, if you can call it a song, where you either like it or hate, it all depends on the "you")

"Yet for all of the superb playing, one really doesn't hear much music on this album; electricity and competitive empathy are clearly not enough, particularly on the 21-minute "Dream" says one expert.
Never the less, it was regarded as ground breaking back then.

Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs ranked this song at Number (Thought this would've been right up R.S alley) and the Album ranked at Number (Maybe the album had 3 to many songs?)

This song has a crowbarred rating of 59.7 out of 108
