John McLaughlin is regarded as one of the greatest jazz-fusion guitarists of all time. He has made countless critically acclaimed albums, both as a solo artist and with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. In 1980, Columbia Records issued The Best Of John McLaughlin on LP. This particular album has never been issued on CD before, so we now present it with an exciting bonus track. Wounded Bird has added the song "The Life Devine" from the Quad version of the album "Love, Devotion, Surrender" with Carlos Santana, which contains a total different guitar solo than the standard issue of that album.
You Purple Virgin is the 5-string bass belonging to E.J. Simpson. Together, they have rocked and recorded the world over (with The MPEband, with TheGoats, with The Problem and many others). "Heart Like A Tiny Jewel" is their first solo album. Co-produced by Adrian Harpham and mixed with Grammy winner Phil Nicolo, YouPurpleVirgin's Heart Like A Tiny Jewel is "a heartfelt ride through textures and melodies....a great debut!" says Philadelphia City Paper. Try it and see/hear/feel the purple!
