Comments for this News article

I put the same question of bbrew101:
"Sony - what happened to your plans to use the original mix?!"

Warning: Not the original mix!

The info above indicates "Bitches Brew: Legacy Edition (a three-disc set, comprising two CDs that contain the original 94-plus minutes of music, in their original 8-track studio mixes unavailable on CD for many years"

But fans purchasing the set have found the CD's do not contain the original mix, but rather the re-mix that has been used on all CD's since 1999.

Sony - what happened to your plans to use the original mix? Many fans are disappointed!
