MILES DAVIS: Bitches Brew (Columbia / Legacy)

For those of you who have been waiting for Bitches Brew to be released in its original form, your wait is over. Sony recently decided to make this landmark CD available to the masses without having to spring for the recently issued 4CD box set. Previous copies suffered from muffled sound and no liner notes. This reissue takes care of both of these problems. The sound has been dramatically improved, and the liners (excerpts from the box set) contain more than enough information for the casual listener. Whether you're buying this album for the first time, or you need to replace an existing copy, this CD is a winner.
