This is a 1st time master seed.
Glasnost Radio Production certified gapless/glitchless/clipless
and pegless torrent. (there CAN"T be any glitches in here, because
there's no CD or DAT tape in this lineage, but I checked anyway)
After his run at Kix in June 81, Miles Davis' next Boston
stops were 2 shows at the Bradford (he also did 2 more there
in April '82). This is the second of the 2 Nov. 81 shows (the
other was Nov. 3rd) and my 1st Miles Davis master recording.
(I wish that had come about 12 years sooner, but better late than
never). This was my 1st time at the Bradford Ballroom, I was in front
row balcony and everything comes through surprisingly clearly even
though I was in the back of the room because there was no obstruction
of the mike to the stage. (their balcony is set up much like Symphony
Hall, only a few rows deep and goes all the way around the room)
The only band members (other than Miles) I know by name are Mike
Stern on guitar (he's from Boston area) and he played well in
this show, and Al Foster is the drummer. As for tunes, this was
the Man with the Horn tour, and the songs all run together (it has to,
this is a Miles Davis show, after all) so I just made 1 track for each
set (there were 2) the 1st one is about 51 min. (with inconspicuous tape
flip 45 min. in during percussion solo), the second about 35 min. A very
listenable recording and a good performance of the 1981 edition Miles band.
I was going to throw his S.N.L. 1981 performance in here as a bonus,
but I've had very bad luck posting anything from that show (alot of it is
officially released) so this is just the Boston concert.
Do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
