~~ Recorded in New York City's Central Park, August 5, 1973, when they were the loudest and fastest band on the planet, it is the last recording (available) with the original line-up. It's hard to believe anyone could play at the incredible level of intensity and virtuosity as displayed on this recording. It surpassed what I had thought even MO themselves were capable of. Sure, the extended compositions ramble in a few places and the sound is adequate but not first rate. But the playing!? Holy cow!!! The duet between McLaughlin and Cobham during "Dream" will make your jaw drop, as will many other incredible moments on this CD. If you have other MO albums and debating whether this one is worth having, then wonder no more. If you are new to MO this is the one record of theirs you *must* have. ("Birds of Fire" comes a close second). "Between Nothingness and Eternity" is unmatched for sheer intensity, power and masterful playing by any band on any record at any time in history. A very bold statement, yes, but true nonetheless-hear for yourself.
Highest recommendation!
