1983 is my all-time favorite Hendrix song. So great to hear this.
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 1:50pm Parq:
Another Frank fill-in -- cool!
Tue. 2/27/18 1:51pm Gregg:
I'm stoned, smoking an Export A, in my dorm room at UC Santa Cruz, looking out a rain drenched window on the 3rd floor. Hendrix playing. What a brilliant time it was.
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 1:53pm rsj:
love the jimi, great show as usual!
Tue. 2/27/18 1:53pm exile-on-hicks-street:
Hard to even imagine, let alone name a better side 3.
Tue. 2/27/18 1:54pm Tome:
...agrees with the above wholeheartedly ..
Tue. 2/27/18 1:59pm Keith from Oregon:
Frank, I can't tell you how many rainy afternoons I've spent listening to this while under the influence of some chemical or other. With Hendrix I always felt safe, no matter how effed-up I was. Thank you for the memories!
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:
Hi, Frank. Thanks for the fill-in today.
Tue. 2/27/18 2:07pm kev:
@hicks st I agree
Tue. 2/27/18 2:11pm judy from croton:
Hendrix smells like fringed leather, cigs, and unwashed hair (that of my best friend’s boyfriend that I had a crush on).
Tue. 2/27/18 2:14pm kev:
I'm back in Ridgewood Park 1969
Tue. 2/27/18 2:17pm KH:
Beck doesn't get near enough airplay on FMU. #BringIt
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:18pm Davee:
@KH: I second that!
Tue. 2/27/18 2:19pm Keith from Oregon:
Beck doesn't get enough airplay ANYWHERE.
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:20pm Brian Battles:
Yay, Mahavishnu....I'm guitargasming with Hendrix, Beck, McLaughlin...whew!
Tue. 2/27/18 2:21pm Marshall Stacks:
I think I saw Mahavishnu on that tour - in Hackensack, of all places.
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:21pm Brian Battles:
Throw in some Coryell....or Steve Morse! :)
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:21pm KevinfromBayRidge:
Howdy Mr. O'Toole. Damnnnn! Jimi, Beck's Bolero, and Mahavishnu. You'se got my vote, Frank.
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:22pm Brian Battles:
I saw Jeff Beck, the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Frank Zappa...amazing show, Waterbury CT Palace Theater, 1970s
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:23pm Brian Battles:
And tickets were like $5.50!
Tue. 2/27/18 2:23pm Ted:
Only on the mighty WFMU can I hear Lauryn Hill, XTC and MAHAVISHNU freaking Orchestra in the same set! ha ha
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:23pm Brian Battles:
Tue. 2/27/18 2:24pm KH:
Quite the line up Brian. Never had the pleasure of seeing MO. And the price could not be beat!
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:24pm Parq:
Ma. Ha. Fucking. Vishnu!
Tue. 2/27/18 2:25pm KH:
First time I caught JB was at Palladium in lower Manhattan. Live with Jan Hammer supporting Wired.
With Heart as an opening act!
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:25pm KevinfromBayRidge:
One of my first concerts was Mahavishnu, Blue Oyster Cult, and the Byrds- StonyBrook- early '70s...Not a bad start!
Tue. 2/27/18 2:26pm billyrizin:
What the hell is wrong with my radio, it's playing good music for a change.
Then I hear who it is. Yay, MUSIC.
Frank, come back, do a regular show where, like in the olden days, the DJ weaves an ambiance by simply playing some of the terrific things that have been recorded over the last hundred or so years. So many great sounds, so little time. So refreshing to hear the disc jockey whipping that musical horse. Thank you Frank O'Toole!
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:26pm Parq:
I saw the MVO over and over again, up to an including the first tour they did without the original line-up. On that tour, they were double-headlining with -- ta da! -- the Jeff Beck Group.
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:26pm Brian Battles:
I interview Hammer on WHUS and then years later on WCCC, way cool guy...first saw him with MO and later solo at the Shaboo Inn in Willimantic CT late 1970s. Amazing times! Now I DDJ on WWUH in Hartford and play lotsa this stuff...and I've been a huge fan of WFMU...if I lived in NJ I'd voilunteer!
Tue. 2/27/18 2:26pm saintMichael:
jazz fusion on wfmu - awesome
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:27pm Brian Battles:
Frank is kicking asse! Streaming this at work in Ellington, CT
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:31pm Parq:
Been sitting here thinking about why the MVO holds up so well when a lot of jazz fusion from the 70s, uh, doesn't. Got to be the sheer intensity of it.
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:35pm Brian Battles:
I met and interviewed all of the original MO guys at one time or another for WHUS, WCCC, and WBAB, and the thing that struck me was that they were all happy, friendly, peaceful and serene type cats...and not druggies like too many other intense musicians
Tue. 2/27/18 2:37pm John Pierard:
WOW! I hope yer back for good! Miss hearing you all these years!

Tue. 2/27/18 2:43pm melinda:
I liked that Ripple.
Tue. 2/27/18 2:43pm Gregg:
That is why I loved the 90's. I have the whole decade on cassette.

what KevinfromBayRidge said
🎃 Tue. 2/27/18 2:55pm Parq:
Kevn, just saw yours at 2:25. Funny thing; my friends who hated fusion and loved hard rock always held up BUC as everything the Mahavishnu wasn't.
Tue. 2/27/18 2:58pm SeanG:
