This review is from: On The Crest Of The Airwaves (Audio CD)Three FM broadcast concerts for only £8.99 is definitely excellent value. The concerts are actually Fillmore West San Francisco on 15 October 1970, Berkshire Music Centre Tanglewood (not England duh!) on 18 August 1970 and Melbourne. All the concerts are worth listening to and the Melbourne concert is over 150 minutes long. I particularly enjoyed the Fillmore concert as there are not a lot of recordings of the Bartz/Jarrett/Henderson/DeJohnette/Moreira line up. The only negatives are a couple of annoying radio announcements - the most annoying being someone from from KPFA talking over the middle of a track on the Fillmore concert - and the fact that there are no "iconic artwork and in depth sleeve notes". Hence the 4 stars.
Recommended to all Miles Davis fans.

The Bitches Brew 40th anniversary deluxe package includes Tanglewood in excellent quality sound, with the band in devastating form.

I have to admit that the Bitches Brew 40th anniversary CD beats this one for sound quality. To get that recording however would set you back around £80, whereas this set here is currently retailing at £8.99. Even if you already own the Tanglewood recording this set is worth buying specifically for the wonderful Melbourne concert on CDs 3 and 4.
