Miles Davis - 1970-02-21, Ann Arbor, MI (speed corrected)(flambay)

jkeisers had posted (311 mb) version of an unknown audience source in Sept. '07. The timing for the show was over 50 minutes for the six tracks.

In June '08, a speed corrected version (298 mb) of the jkeiser upload was seeded, and was here from 2008 -2011. It timed out at 49:23.


Shaolin posted a rip from a bootleg CD from the Legendary Collection Series:

Miles Davis - 1970-02-21, Ann Arbor Blues And Jazz Festival (FLAC)(294 mb)


It has zero seeds.

plosin describes the disc as "Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival 1970 (Mega Disc Legendary Collection 0221)." It times out at 49:11. I'm guessing that's the disc Shaolin uploaded.

Timings are, in order (jkeiser, flambay, shaolin):

01. It's About That Time (11:25, 10:52, 10:52)
02. I Fall In Love Too Easily (3:55, 3:57, 3:58)
03. Sanctuary (6:38, 6:29, 6:30)
04. Bitches Brew (13:31, 13:10, 13:07)
05. Masqualero (14:07, 13:33, 13:33)
06. Theme (1:23, 1:20, 1:15)

I am uncertain when the "Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival 1970 (Mega Disc Legendary Collection 0221)" disc was released, so I don't know if it predates flambay's speed correction or is someone else's attempt to copy it and profit from it. The timings of 0221 are sufficiently similar to flambay's work that downloading what I am uploading here now may be redundant, if timings are the only factor that matter to you. Since I have jkeiser and flambay's uploads, I did not listen to Shaolin's, so I cannot comment on the similarities or differences in audio quality.

As it already has been discussed in Shaolin's thread, the concert was not part of the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival 1970.
