"A Lotus on Irish Streams" features McLaughlin on acoustic guitar, Jerry Goodman on violin and Jan Hammer on piano. With the previous cut from The Inner Mounting Flame
, "The Noonward Race," still bouncing against the walls inside the listener's head, along comes this serene, classically influenced excursion. A fluttering cascade of delicate notes produces a tender melody. Sounding amazingly close to New Age music, 10 years before New Age became a recognized entity, it is distinguished from it by high-level musicianship and lack of fragility.
