Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire(1973)

Birds of Fire (1973) is the Mahavishnu Orchestra's second studio album and the last one performed by the original Mahavishnu Orchestra line-up, before Jean-Luc Ponty replaced Jerry Goodman on violin and Narada Michael Walden replaced Billy Cobham on drums. (See 1973 in music.)
The back cover of the LP features a poem entitled "Revelation" by Sri Chinmoy.
A remastered version of the album, on CD, was released in 2000 by Sony Music Entertainment. It features a facsimile of the LP cover, a new set of liner notes by Bill Milkowski, as well as photographs of the band.
As in the case of The Mahavishnu Orchestra's previous album, The Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire consisted solely of compositions by John McLaughlin. This includes the track "Miles Beyond (Miles Davis)", which McLaughlin dedicated to his former bandleader.
