In June 1970, fresh off the release of his game-changing double album Bitches Brew, Miles Davis and his six-piece band were booked into Bill Graham’s Fillmore East in New York, where they opened for songwriter Laura Nyro.
Davis’ hot, surging sets were condensed into the double LP Miles Davis at the Fillmore, which came out later that year. Now Columbia/Legacy is set to release the entire unedited residency, with more than 100 minutes of previously unreleased music and bonus tracks from the group’s appearance at the San Francisco Fillmore that April.
Miles at the Fillmore: Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Vol. 3 will be available March 25th, but you can hear the 10-minute-plus version of “Spanish Key” – from a rare encore at the Fillmore West – now at Rolling Stone.
