Tokyo 1975 [YSP 0606001, 6CD - CD 1 and 2]

Live at the Shinjuku Kohseinenkin Hall, Tokyo, Japan; January 23, February 7, February 8, 1975. From the Three Shows boot; good to fairly good audience recording.

A week or so after these Tokyo shows, Miles Davis was in Osaka and the Osaka shows were recorded and released as Agharta and Pangaea. Some consider Agharta a high point of the electric Miles.

These shows came from the Three Shows boot:
CD 1 and 2 - January 23, 1975
CD 3 and 4 - February 7, 1975
CD 5 and 6 - February 8, 9175

  2. hey bigo, thanks for posting this! i’ll get the other two tokyo shows, when you post them. i got every single miles show you offered, except for the later ones. my stopping point on miles is 1975.

    if you happen to see napalm death-zydeco, b’ham, al 11.26.12 on dime, i’d love to have it. i was there!!! i got my picture taken with barney greenway of napalm death, and he remembered the masquerade, atlanta, ga august 1991 show i was at. mitch harris remembered chatting with me on facebook and me telling him how i still listen to both righteous pigs demos. i have both in my library.

  3. > my stopping point on miles is 1975.

    more or less the same for me - i do love that electric miles period, and what led up to it.

  4. While I consider myself incredibly privileged to have gotten to see Miles live in 1990, I have to mostly agree with the commenters above–though there was some interesting 80’s stuff, like Aura, I rarely listen to anything post-1975.

  5. I`m not a Miles Davis expert by any means.
    I`m not that familiar with the majority of his works but `ll never forget when i first heard
    Dave Clayton Thomas tells a great Miles story in his bio.

  7. Will you ever post the other shows from “Three Shows”? Thank you for this wonderful site, and for the effort you put in to sharing and bringing musical pleasure to others.

  8. I’ve seen a LOT of bands in my day. A lot of tight bands. Very tight bands. But nothing comes close to this band live. Tightest ever.
    Miles would think it and it was done.
