MILES DAVIS SEPTET
Complete Friday Miles at Fillmore [So What! sw-097, 1CD]
Live at Fillmore East Auditorium, New York, June 19, 1970. An excellent stereo soundboard.
According to All Music Guides Tom Jurek, when Miles Davis At Fillmore was released, this was how it was packaged: This double-LP/CD package puts together selections from each night [June 17-20], without regard for repetition. Its fine that there are numerous performances of certain tunes: the problem is that, although the music is compelling, its schizophrenic because there are no full performances on the final release; they were all edited severely (as was standard practice by Teo Macero and Davis).
To compound this, when the music from Friday night actually collects some of the music from Thursday night - different segments are edited within tunes, the grooves dont necessarily match and for this set (unlike many other live Miles dates) just as a composition starts to gel, it segues into another rather abruptly.
Collectors were finally given the complete uncut performances when So What! released three of the four nights without cuts. This show covers the Friday night performance on June 19. So What!, a Japanese bootleg label, has also offered Complete Wednesday and Saturday Miles At Fillmore, covering the shows on June 17 and 20. The Thursday show has not surfaced.
