    I own it. Real cool but I'm not the biggest fan of Miles electric stuff. Still if you have some herb sit back and be hypnotized

    I have a ton of Miles after BB and I like it all. Might not be for everyone, but it apparently is for me... I have several before also and like those too. Miles was always pushing the envelope, never happy with doing what had been done, and I have great respect for that. At the time it must have taken nads the size of a dump truck and he took hell for it from the jazz establishment, but he didn't care. He did what he thought he dad to do.

    I've got the DVD and it's great to see this band - much funkier than I expected and they way they are looking to Miles and responding to what he's doing/indicating - the interviews were very interesting as well - but I think there was a thread about the DVD release where everybody gave their opinions - search for this and you might get some more views?

    Yes, we all rapped about this when it was released onto DVD.

    I dig it a lot!
