Miles Davis: Live Chatelet March 5, 1982

These tracks are bootleg recordings of a live gig from Miles' post-retirement era. Although I'm not a big fan of a lot of his 1980s and early 1990s material, he could still bring down the house live. The vibe on this gig is definitely more laid-back than anything one would get from the 1970s. Fun compare and contrast: check out this gig's version of Ife, and then listen to recordings of Ife from the early to mid 1970s.

The tracks should fit on two CDs. I've broken this down into three parts in order to deal with Rapidshare's limitations.

Looks like a bootleg from 1971.

I'm not dead yet

Sorry for the longer-than-expected hiatus. Computer mishaps abounded over the last several weeks that have put me way behind schedule. Fortunately thanks to the help of some friends, I have rebuilt a database of sorts, and should FINALLY be able to get some newish material uploaded over the next few weeks.
