150430_bootleg4_coverAh! I certainly enjoyed the previous volumes of this series – Miles Davis, the Bootleg Series – and I’d been wondering if Columbia was going to actually continue it.

– interesting, they combine the acoustic bands with the electric years. Fans of it all are in for a treat, disciples of the electric band have a chance to hear classic Miles acoustic bands in action.
– set does not include the flashy, sequined costume Warner Bros. years.
