- From Plosins site: The Davis Sextet opened for The Elvin Bishop Group and Mandrill for four nights at the Fillmore West, May 6-9 (Thursday-Sunday). Columbia probably recorded these shows, but they remain unissued. According to Wolfgangs Vault (wolfgangsvault.com), which owns all of the surviving recordings from the Fillmores and has made some available on the web, this music is from May 7, though the version thats available online is also missing Directions and the beginning of Honky Tonk.
These tracks were previously shared on the net in 2005 as:
Miles Davis Sextet, May 6-9, 1971, Fillmore West Auditorium, San Francisco.

It had the following notes:
Presumably the set began with Directions. The Davis Sextet opened for The Elvin Bishop Group and Mandrill for four nights at the Fillmore West, May 6-9 (Thursday-Sunday). Columbia probably recorded these shows, but they remain unissued. In any case, Im not sure which night this music is from.
While on the west coast the Sextet also opened for The Band at the Hollywood Bowl, and played a week at Shellys Manne-Hole, Los Angeles (dates unknown). It was during this tour that Jarrett and DeJohnette recorded Ruta and Daitya (ECM 1021) in Sunset Studios. Later in May the Sextet returned to New York for a week at the Gaslight Club, New York (dates unknown); it was also booked at the Newport Jazz Festival (July 5) and The Beacon Theater, New York (July 20-21). Sometime in July or August Jack DeJohnette left the Sextet to form his own group, Compost.
