Tokyo 1975 [YSP 0606001, 6CD - CD 5 and 6]

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
