I forgot, the great bassist on the YouTube clip is Stanley Clarke. I’m no good at copy & paste, but there’s a YouTube clip of his band playing “Schooldays” on OGWT. Marvellous stuff.

12bD I got to Mahavishnu via Graham Bond Organisation iirc. JM was in that and Green Onions was played somewhere and as it was a tad different to the Booker T version I found an old MONO album of Bond in a bargain bucket and heard JM playing. Then MO on OGWT sold it and off to buy Birds of Fire went I. I have that album on about 4 or 5 different formats so can play it almost anywhere lol

Hello Dai, you'd probably need a huge sheet of paper to work out the family tree of bands that sprung up with members of Graham Bond's groups. Jon Hiseman, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin. Crikey, the list goes on & on.

I didn't know that Graham Bond committed suicide though till I looked it up this afternoon.
