The Miles Davis Band played four shows on four consecutive nights in the Fillmore West, on April 9-12, 1970. Miles was on the same bill with 'The Grateful Dead', 'Stone the Crows' and 'Clouds'. The April 10 show was issued by Columbia in complete form on 'Black Beauty: Miles Davis Live At The Fillmore West'.

The April 11 show is one of my personal favorites. It has some very inspired playing by Chick Corea and Dave Holland. This recording features the only known version of of Corea's 'Sundance/Vamp' by the Miles Davis Band, and the last known version of 'Paraphernalia'.

source: 3 source FM matrix: tracks 1-3, source 1, which has some static in parts but never very loud or long lasting. This is a 2nd gen. tape. The rest is from 1st gen. (different master source) and sounds as good as I've ever heard this show sound, but it also has some static, the fidelity is overall quite good for a Jan. 72 FM recording, with great seperation of left and right, but WBCN was hardly the megawatt giant it has been since circa early 80's. The third source (unknown) only provides a few seconds of this recording, filling in just a few seconds of talk after Dawn when John mentions he broke a string and we'll be right back, at which point they cut away to a commercial, and cut back in after John mentions Jan Hammer, just as he says "he's from Czeckoslovakia". I have cut out all the commercials, and left all the music and talk in here. The 3rd source is not as good as the other two, fortunately it's just barely long enough to notice it, and there strictly to maintain the continuity of the recording.
