MILES DAVIS
Miles LX: Coltrane And Beyond [Miles-Trees.Org, CD5 and 6]

Live at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, UK; September 27, 1960. Good to very good audience recording.

This is strictly for the collectors.

Recently, we shared a version of this show, taken from Magnetic Records (click here) - said to be from a soundboard. The Miles Tree version is said to be an audience recording. On a cursory listen, both versions sound the same (almost identical track times) but there are minute differences. The Magnetic Records tracks sound a little cleaner; the Miles Tree tracks a wee bit rawer. It’s possible, along the way, someone might have listed the wrong source.

Those who had taken the Magnetic Records set might want to skip this, unless you need these two discs to complete your Miles Tree collection.

Before bittorrent made music sharing easier and more convenient, serious Miles fans used to congregate at Miles-Trees.Org where burn-and-post was a key way of exchanging music.

For the 1960 European tour, Miles Trees compiled a six-CD set called Miles LX: Coltrane & Beyond. But by the time of this concert, Sonny Stitt had already replaced John Coltrane.
