"Bitches Brew and its legendary and iconic status has not waned one iota since the celebrated release of the set in 1970. To honor its 40th anniversary, Columbia/Legacy has completely outdone everyone else ... by releasing three different, exceedingly tempting, configurations."

Amazing day for me when I came home for work and sitting on my porch was my BITCHES BREW 40TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTOR'S EDITION and it arrived on the day of its release.

Oh my! This package is so well done with such a great collection of music and art. I'm so glad I picked it up.
Even my 16 year old son was finally seeing the LIGHT with me as he got to watch Miles on the DVD during this era for the first time.

Well done and a cheers to those who put this package together.
If you haven't ordered this set, you should. It truly is a must for your modern MILES collection!
