I love this period of Miles - the reviews on the individual albums will rightly point up the musicianship of all involved, but I'm no musician. I would just add this is music to listen to on your own, with a lover, with a drink, with a hangover, lost in thought or without one in the world.
Bitches Brew is hard work, Kind of Blue you heard a million times before. If you don't know Sorcerer, Nefertiti or Kilimanjaro this package is great value. 3 terrific albums - as moody and beautiful as any Miles made to my ears. You can take this review to the bank.

Lovely set of 3 remastered albums with bonus tracks, Bare bones release but it's the music your after really, superb late 1960's Miles before he went full in to the fusion funk period. One question! Why is this release just 3 albums? the other sets like this all have 5 albums, this set could have been made perfect by the inclusion of "Miles Smiles" and "Miles In The Sky" , same period and great albums too.

Please read the reviews that can be found with each separate release for more info on the music. I just wanted to say that this set is very neatly packaged for the price. It collects 2 of the 60's quintet's classic releases, although Sorcerer is always considered the poor relation (why, I really dont understand), alongside the outstanding Filles De Kilimanjaro which features the 'classic' quintet and also the 'lost' quintet. Filles is very frequently described as a 'transitional' release because of the 2 quintets featured which really is inaccurate as its one of his most consistent in terms of overall mood and sound.
The 3 discs all feature the award winning remastering of Mark Wilder along with the additional outtakes etc that were made available with the separate releases.
[...] in [...] yesterday so a bargain price from Amazon as well.
