last week, i was listening to a lot of miles davis from 1966 & 1967.  ok, i’ll admit it:  with miles after around 1970, i don’t always get it.  there.  in any event, those were some great shows on my little ‘miles davis mid-sixties’ day, so here’s one of them.  if i get ambitious, maybe another to come.

on the seed back in 2008 when i downloaded this, the seeder newplanet7 said

losin calls this an audience recording, but it sounds more like a board.

but actually losin describes it as a “soundboard recording (b-)”, which sounds right to me.  i’m not listening on the worlds best sound system, but i’d have put it more like “soundboard (a-)”, myself.

i think that this was also bootlegged by a european label “sunburn recordings” at some point but hasn’t been officially released that i am aware.
