McLaughlin/Di Meola/De Lucia: Hammersmith Odeon, London
Mick Brown, Guardian, The, 20 June 1983
A COMBINATION of John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola and Paco De Lucia — three guitarists in the world heavyweight class — promises a multitude of possibilities almost to the point of overkill. How much quick-fingered genius, how many virtuoso flourishes can one reasonably expect to take in one evening? In the company of these three, more than one might imagine. This was a performance of sustained brilliance conducted in an atmosphere of surprisingly high and voluble excitement.
