Miles Davis


Rainbow Theatre

London, UK

Miles Davis
Dave Liebman
Pete Cosey
Reggie Lucas
Michael Henderson
Al Foster

This is taken from the earlier share from Alienman.
He put it up as part of a 2 gig set of shows from 1973.

This like some of the other shows was just one flac file.
His text with that set was taken mostly, directly from the site
linked here, to this shows listing:


We don't have much proof that this audio is in fact from this gig
but....it's not like Miles said 'it's good to be in London'.

Here is the text from the above link:

Now, he is referring to two fragments here.
Well this is only the first. The second was not included in Alienman's
original seed. So we don't have it.

And some of what is listed for the first fragment doesn't make a lot of sense.
To me the music sounds complete without any gaps.
So what he means by the word incomplete above....
And I'm not real sure why he's calling the last track 'Calypso Frelimo'.

Here's my tracking.

01. 14:27
02. 07:52
03. 16:31
04. 04:38

Like I said above the original share was one flac file.
So I did split it up.
And I worked on it.
It was quite hissy during the quiet parts.
So I put the file first into 'Audacity' and used the denoise
algorithm. It certainly wasn't hard to isolate a short segment
of nothing but noise to set up for the fix.

I then put the file as 24 bits into Pro Tools LE for eq and some
level adjustments.
