I have done so since the early ’70s. What a fine ‘desert island’ album. There’s nothing else like it, and I wish Mr McLaughlin would return to this musical space. Marc Chabot 11 janvier 2015. My Goals Beyond to me is one of the greatest expressions passion and the spiritual through the acoustic guitar in modern music.

My Goal's Beyond is the fourth solo album (after Extrapolation and Devotion) by John McLaughlin. The album was originally released in 1971 on Douglas Records in the US. It was later reissued by Douglas/Casablanca (1976), Elektra/Musician (1982), and in 1987 by Rykodisc on CD and L. .The music is strongly influenced by music of India, and was dedicated to McLaughlin's spiritual leader, Indian guru Sri Chinmoy. Side one has two longer pieces for the whole band, including soprano saxophone, flute, violin and Indian percussion as rock became more creative and its musicianship improved, and as some in the jazz world became bored with hard bop and did not want to play strictly avant-garde music, the two different idioms began to trade ideas and occasionally combine forces. Miles Davis made the breakthrough into fusion in the 1970s with his album Bitches Brew. It was later reissued by Douglas/Casablanca (1976), Elektra/Musician (1982), and in 1987 by Rykodisc on CD and LP.

Devotion is the third album by the English jazz fusion guitarist John McLaughlin, released in 1970. It was recorded while McLaughlin was in Tony William's band Lifetime; prior to forming The Mahavishnu Orchestra. McLaughlin was unhappy with the resulting album. First is 'Devotion' that is destroyed by producer Alan Douglas who mixes the recording in my absence.

And this album actually has some ramifications in both projects: MGIB is the album where McLaughlin meets violinist Jerry Goodman and drummer Billy Cobham (both members of MO) and most of the second side shows the tastes McL has for Indian music, something he will delve in with Shakti. MGIB comes with a stellar cast of supporting musicians, but weirdly enough, he doesn’t need them for the whole of the first side, as it is strictly acoustic and a solo performance (some Gong banging on two tracks).
