Raw, gritty fusion - 4 1/2 stars,
This review is from: Devotion (Audio CD)
John Mclaughlin's closest brush with straight ahead hard rock. This features fellow 'Lifetimer' Larry Young on Organ and Hendrix's Band of Gypsies as the rhythm section.
The sound is influenced by Hendrix, with the use of heavy distortion and wah wah processing. Mclaughlin and Young's interplay is superb throughout. This is not for persons looking for melody - with atonal harmonies and angular jams. Producer Alan Douglas deliberately makes the sound gritty to veer it closer to rock.
An interesting and important document from the early days of fusion.
